The Italian luxury carmaker Maserati, on July 16th, virtually unveiled its first-ever electric-hybrid car, the Ghibli Hybrid.
It has been developed by the Maserati Innovation Lab of Modena and the vehicle will be produced at the Avvocato Giovanni Agnelli Plant (AGAP) at Grugliasco in Turin, Italy.
The hybrid car has undergone design changes and the most easily recognisable element is the blue colour, which has been incorporated in several places.

The colour has been chosen to identify all Maserati cars with hybrid technology and the new world they represent.

On the exteriors, the colour blue can be spotted on the three side air ducts, the brake calipers and the thunderbolt in the oval that encloses the Trident on the rear pillar.

Inside the car, it appears on the embroidered seams of the seats.

The new front grille with bars has been redesigned to represent a tuning fork—a musical device that emits the sound of extreme purity and which also evokes the Trident symbol itself.

The light clusters in the rear have been completely restyled, with a boomerang-like profile.

This has been inspired by the 3200 GT and the Alfieri concept car.

The European carmaker has chosen a hybrid solution, which is entirely focused on improving performance, while also reducing fuel consumption and cutting emissions.
The hybrid technology exploits kinetic energy that the car accumulates when in motion, recovering it and transforming it into electricity during deceleration and braking, and storing it in a battery.

The car is powered by 4 cylinders, turbo, displacement of 2.0l; with a 48-volt alternator and an additional electric supercharger (e-Booster), supported by a battery. It has a power output of 330 hp and delivers torque of 450 Nm from just 1,500 rpm.

The hybrid car reaches a top speed of 255 km/h and accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.7 seconds.

Ghibli Hybrid also marks the debut of the new Maserati Connect program, which enables constant connection with the car. It enables information exchange when on the move, in order to improve the services offered to the driver.

The Maserati Intelligent Assistant multimedia system is latest-generation and the system’s HD screen has been expanded from 8.4inch to 10.1inch.

This new car represents the first step in a plan that will lead to the electrification of all the future Maserati models.
