Maserati will compete in Formula E for the first time in Season 9 of the all-electric series, and the Italian automaker has just confirmed a multi-year deal with ROKit Venturi Racing. While that is certainly thrilling – Maserati will be the first Italian automaker to join Formula E – the official press statement for the new partnership also included something even more intriguing. It comes in the shape of a photo of the GranTurismo Folgore in the news.
For the uninitiated, Maserati intends to go entirely electric by 2030, and the aforementioned vehicle will play a key role in that endeavour. When it launches next year, it will be the brand’s first production electric vehicle. We’ve already seen teaser images hinting at its design but now we have a photo of an actual car sitting next to Davide Grasso and Scott Swid, CEOs of Maserati and ROKit Venturi Racing, respectively.

This is not the final production version of the electric Maserati, as you can see from the accompanying image. Although the body and lighting appear to be finished, elements of the front fascia are still covered in camouflage. Thin blue camouflage foil is also disguising the actual contour of the shoulder line around the rear fenders, based on what we can observe. Overall, the GranTurismo Folgore is building out to be one of the best-looking electric vehicles, though we’ll wait final judgement until the body camouflage is removed, which is expected to happen in roughly a year.

Maserati is making great claims about the zero-emissions coupe in terms of technology. It will be propelled by three electric motors and will ride on a new platform. The automobile will have more than 1,200 horsepower (883 kilowatts) supplied to all four wheels in its most powerful form. Even more astonishing, according to the company, the 0-60 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint should take less than three seconds, and the top speed should be approximately 190 mph (306 kph). Electric energy will be provided by an 800-volt battery pack situated low in the automobile.
With its “passion and drive to compete and win on tracks all around the world,” Maserati says the new partnership with ROKit Venturi Racing will help the brand’s return to motorsport. The business will make its Formula E debut with the new Gen3 car, which is the lightest, most powerful, and quickest vehicle in the competition’s history.
