Information devices Jaw-dropping stats for Maserati’s GranTurismo electric car: We’ve compared it to the Dacia Spring.
Even if its release is scheduled for next year, Maserati’s future 100% electric GT is gradually revealing its features and performance that we have put together with Dacia Spring. After some time near Rome, it is now in Germany where the car is completing its training.
Electric sports cars are not yet at the party in Italy
Sports enthusiasts are aware that many car manufacturers are gradually turning to electric cars without giving up combustion engines. The most telling example is undoubtedly that of the Porsche Taycan Turbo S, a true monster of power with its 761 horsepower.It has already influenced the automotive world with its greater freedom.
With Audi, Mercedes and BMW, Germany is already well positioned in terms of high-performance electric vehicles. Italy, meanwhile, is still slow in pointing its nose at the market. Fiat has started selling some models, but the biggest names in the Italian car industry have yet to launch their properties. As Ferrari fans eagerly await the release of the manufacturer’s first electric car in 2025, Maserati is already ready to send its new GranTurismo Folgore into production.
Previewed for the first time in Rome on the sidelines of the Formula E Grand Prix in April 2022, the electric racing car is now being tested on Germany’s Nürburgring circuit. For the occasion, we wanted to compare it with the Dacia Fountain, and even if our comparison is more fun than anything else, the latter allows us to better appreciate the characteristics of the Maserati.
Dacia Spring vs. Maserati GranTurismo Folgore
|Dacia Spring||Maserati Gran Turismo Folgore|
|Price||From 16800 €||more than 100000 €|
|Performance||44 hp||1200 hp|
|0-100km/h||19.1s||– 3 s|
|Release date||Already available||2023|
As we explained to you, the comparison does not have to be, but it allows above all to highlight features and performance of the Maserati GT Folgore. The latter could take a hit in terms of power when it comes out next year, because as you can see in our comparison table, this racing car will pack 1200 horsepower split between 3 engines.
Another advantage of the GranTurismo Folgore, its all-wheel drive. Understand here that this will be neither gravity nor motion and that therefore 4 wheels will be driven. A feature that will certainly allow the Maserati to have flawless handling, even when starting with the pedal down.
And his Folgore series – electricity or electricity in Italian – Maserati wants to mark its entry into the electric world. The first step in this new story will be marked by the upcoming version of the Grecale Folgore SUV as well as the electric version of the GranCabrio. By 2025, every Maserati will have an electric version. The aim of the Italian car maker is to no longer produce hot models from 2030.
