Maserati, the first official photos of the Grecale SUV have been released


A prototype of the new Grecale SUV was immortalized in Modena in front of the Maserati headquarters. According to the car manufacturer, the very first images were spread on social networks by the employees themselves. Currently, the prototypes are undergoing a period of tests on the road, on the track and off-road in order to study an optimal set-up before the vehicle's official debut.

Let's talk about the new Trident SUV whose arrival in the dealerships is expected by the end of 2021. Only a few days ago the first model was assembled, a very important event in which the CEO, Carlos Tavares, was inevitably present. Not coincidentally, the realization of the pre-series specimens are used to carry out the road tests necessary to reach the validation of the vehicle which, consequently, will be produced in series. The production of the Grecale SUV will be hosted by the Cassino plant, recipient of an investment of approximately 800 million euros.

Let's not forget that the new model is a candidate to be the best-selling Maserati, so much so that the company itself the manufacturer considers that, together with the Levante, in 2025 it will be worth 70% of its total volumes. The goal of the Italian manufacturer of luxury sports cars is to reach 75,000 total units per year within the next 5 years. In this regard, Maserati Grecale will inevitably play a fundamental role in the Trident plan which includes the launch of 3 new models. However, in the course of 2021, in addition to the production of the Grecale and the hybrid version of the Levante, the MC20 will also arrive.

As for the engines, it is assumed the presence of a 4-cylinder 2.0 petrol engine with a 48-volt hybrid system, which offers a total power of 330 HP. It cannot be ruled out that it may later be accompanied by a 280hp non-hybrid variant and a sports car equipped with the new 3.0-liter V6 Neptune engine. 2022 will see the arrival of a fully electric version with two engines powered by a 90 kWh battery and an 800 volt charging system.
