Maserati has globally revealed a brand-new, all-electric convertible. It goes by the name of GranCabrio Folgore and is one of the few all-electric drop-tops available on the market. Given that it shares many parts, including the engine, the GranCabrio Folgore is positioned as an open-air alternative to the current GranTurismo Folgore. The model is expected to arrive in the US in 2025, and since the ICE-powered variant starts at USD 203,000 (about Rs 1.69 crore), the EV will probably cost a hefty buck. Currently, the GranCabrio Folgore has no direct competitors. The convertible will likely arrive on our shores as well. For the Indian market, Maserati has previously announced the release of the all-electric GranTurismo Folgore and the petrol-powered GranCabrio and GranTurismo. 

2025 Maserati GranCabrio Folgore: Design

The model utilises an aerodynamically improved design while still following the same philosophy as its ICE-powered counterpart. The car gets a new front bumper and a redesigned grille as part of the facelift. Additionally, buyers can choose low rolling resistance tyres for the staggered 20- and 21-inch wheels. Nero, Blue Marine, Titan Grey, Greige, and Granata are the five colour options for the roof. Customers can also request an optional wind stopper to reduce wind buffeting.

Mechanically, the EV is the fastest and most potent version of Maserati's drop-top Grand Tourer, with a tri-motor all-wheel drive system that produces a remarkable 806bhp of maximum power and 1350Nm of peak torque when the boost mode is activated. However, when driving normally, the peak output stands at 740bhp. These numbers also translate into some incredible performance stats for this 2,340 kg convertible, including a reported 2.8-second 0 to 100km/h sprint and a sub-10-second 0 to 200km/h acceleration time. The battery pack claims a range of 448 kilometres on a single charge.

While the petrol variant can reach a maximum speed of 316km/h, the GranCabrio Folgore tops at 290km/h. Six-piston Brembo brakes up front and four-piston Brembo brakes in back provide stopping power. There is a standard adaptive air suspension.

When it comes to the cabin of the Folgore drop top, its 12.2-inch digital instrument cluster, 12.3-inch infotainment system, and 8.8-inch comfort display lend the model an opulent and high-tech vibe. A flat-bottom, heated steering wheel with paddle shifters made of brushed aluminum connects them. Along with the accelerator, compass, G-force meter, and stopwatch displays, there are three additional highlights: a digital clock with three different skins, a standard neck warmer, and an audio system from Sonus Faber.

Interestingly, the interior can be fully customised and outfitted with eco-friendly materials like Econyl. It's a polymer known as "regenerated nylon," created from materials like carpets and recycled fishing nets. The 2+2 seating configuration of the petrol GranCabrio is also carried over to the Folgore. At up to 50km/h, the folding soft-top of the GranCabrio can be opened and closed in 14 and 16 seconds, respectively.

2025 Maserati GranCabrio Folgore: Drive Modes

There is a rotary device positioned on the steering wheel that allows you to choose between the GranCabrio Folgore's four drive modes: GT, Sport, Corsa, and Max Range. The GranCabrio's default mode, GT, unleashes up to 80% of its maximum power, while Sport and Corsa are designed to enhance the driving experience. As the name implies, Max Range limits top speed to 130km/h, dampens accelerator pedal action, and reduces power to the air conditioning system to maximise the vehicle's range.

Launch Control is available in both Sport and Corsa drive modes, and the latter also has two sub-settings: MaxBoost, which allows you to use all of the car's power, and Endurance, which aims to provide you with the optimum balance of power and range for extended track use.
