Maserati desires to situation the Quattroporte to straddle the luxurious and govt saloon segments, in spite of their large-achieving value distinctions (at present, the Ghibli expenses pretty much £24,000 significantly less than the £92,825 Quattroporte).
This suggests the manufacturer will glimpse to attract individuals driving the likes of both the Mercedes-Benz EQE and the BMW i7 who want even a lot more exclusivity.
This point was backed up by Maserati’s head of world wide product, Massimo Capaldi, who instructed Autocar that he expects Folgore types to attract a new type of customer to the brand name.
“With the EV, everything is modifying. The segments are crossing [over] just about every other,” he stated.
The Quattroporte will be based mostly on the new Maserati created underpinnings of the Granturismo (which will also be applied for all upcoming Folgore models and the brand’s closing combustion-engined autos).
It has been developed for optimum fat distribution, with the battery positioned in a T-condition minimal and along the centre of the chassis.
