Maserati today comes with exciting news for its “small” sedan. The Maserati Ghibli Hybrid will then be officially presented to start the electrification of Maserati.
Under the Spark The Next Offensive, Maserati will introduce its new model series that will rely more on electric propulsion. This will start with the Maserati Ghibli hybrid that will target the hybrid sedans of the German three.
Currently, the Ghibli is available in three versions. 1. The standard 350hp V6. 2. The SQ4 with four-wheel drive. 3. The best-selling is a V6 diesel with 275 hp. For the last model that is also the cheapest of the three, € 11,000 more can be charged than the faster Mercedes 400D. For the € 106,800 Maserati Ghibli 3.0 V6 diesel, you can say that you drive a Maserati Ghibli.
Like many manufacturers around them, the FCA group is busy reducing their CO2 emissions . According to EU regulation EU2019 / 631, a car manufacturer across its range may not emit more than 95 grams of CO2 per km per car. If this is not achieved, every CO2 gram above the set limit will be fined. The calculation is as follows;
Number of grams above 95g CO2 x 95 euros x the number of cars sold in that year.
According to the latest known data from FCA’s CO2 emissions, the average emissions in 2018 for the entire group were 123 grams per kilometer.
The future of the trident
The Maserati Ghibli hybrid is therefore an essential part of reducing CO2 emissions. However, the Ghibli will mean much more to Maserati, who are currently looking for buyers. With the Ghibli Hybrid, Maserati will have the opportunity to offer its sedan at a competitive price. That this is of vital importance is evident from the fact that the completely renewed Ghibli is expected in 2022.
Ghibli Hybrid drive
Exact data will be presented this afternoon, but it is expected that approximately 30 kilometers can be driven on the electric motors. Furthermore, a regenerative braking system will be used to recharge the battery. The Ghibli Hybrid will be recognizable by various blue accents, including on the iconic side vents.
Maserati Ghibli Hybrid performance
The Ghibli hybrid has just been presented with a 2 liter 4 cylinder engine coupled to a mild hybrid system. Together this makes the Ghibli Hybrid 330 hp and 450 Nm strong. With a weight of 80 kg or less than the diesel, the hybrid sprints to 100 in 5.7 seconds and stops accelerating at 255 km / h. Naturally, this Hybrid will also be equipped with the characteristic Maserati exhaust note.
The Maserati connect program makes it possible to get information about the car. Software packages can be updated via a constant connection, but it is also no problem to carry out checks on the car or to inform the auxiliaries in the event of an emergency.
