Watch the debut of the 2024 Maserati GranCabrio Folgore here: live stream

At the end of February, Maserati removed the roof from its latest GranTurismo to offer us the 2024 GranCabrio. A notable level of finish was missing from these beginnings: the fully electric Folgore version. This car will debut today as part of a special event in Italy. Be excited.

A teaser image released by Maserati this morning (above) gives us a good look at the GranCabrio Folgore. Not surprisingly, the car looks a lot like the GranCabrio we saw on February 29. We notice some differences, notably in the grille, the front face and the wheels. For the rest of the changes, watch the live debut here, starting at 2:00 p.m. Eastern.

The aforementioned components come directly from the GranTurismo Folgore, so it’s safe to assume that the GranCabrio Folgore uses the same electric powertrain. To refresh your memory, it’s a tri-motor setup, with each rear wheel having its own unit. A single motor powers the front axle, generating a total of 751 horsepower and 996 pound-feet of torque.

A 92.5 kilowatt-hour (83 usable kWh) T-shaped battery pack keeps the center of gravity low and allows for a 0-60 mph time of just 2.7 seconds. If you don’t step on the accelerator regularly, Maserati estimates a range of about 250 miles between charging stops. The car’s 800-volt architecture allows for rapid charging from 20 to 80 percent in 18 minutes.

Keep in mind that these numbers are for the hardtop GranTurismo Folgore. Cutting the roof usually adds weight, which won’t be very beneficial for a car that already weighs 5,000 pounds. The GranCabrio Folgore is expected to use the same folding soft top as its combustion-engine sibling, folding flat in 13.9 seconds and usable at speeds up to 31 mph. It will, however, be considerably more powerful than the ICE version. The top-of-the-line GranCabrio Trofeo produces 542 horsepower from its 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6.

We will have full information on the 2024 GranCabrio Folgore soon. Stay tuned.
