2025 Maserati GranCabrio Folgore Is An Electrifying Italian Grand Tourer



2025 Maserati GranCabrio Folgore

When you think about Maserati, you picture a gorgeous Italian sportscar, with a screaming V8 engine that turns heads when you get on it. But with the new Maserati GranCabrio Folgore, the visceral experience will be a little different. You see, while at first glance it may look like a regular Maserati GranCabrio Spyder, the difference is what’s under the hood.

The 2025 Maserati GranCabrio Folgore is actually an electric vehicle, and in fact it’s the first fully-electric convertible in its segment to hit the market. And with a top speed of 180mph, it is also the fastest electric convertible on the road.

Pillars of GranCabrio
The characteristics of GranCabrio can be summed up in four basic concepts that condense the enormous potential of Maserati’s latest product:

  • Open-top elegance. Passion for detail, luxurious materials and extraordinary quality to create an unrivalled outdoor experience in a convertible, as the epitome of the Maserati spirit
  • Performance. Driving pleasure, a powerful and muscular car on the track as well as on the road, ideal for travelling long distances in company
  • Cutting-edge technology. GranCabrio incorporates state-of-the-art technology, from the infotainment system to driver aids, to improve performance, safety and entertainment
  • Iconic design. A unique style, designed alongside the coupé version, to interpret the transition from a hard roof to a retractable top in the best possible way

Maserati GranCabrio stands out for its unparalleled “open-air experience”, to enjoy the road as you travel down it. The canvas roof offers an impeccable driving experience when closed in a coupé form, whereas the excellent aerodynamics and great comfort are maintained even when driving it as a convertible.

The canvas soft top can be operated when driving at speeds of up to 31 mph. It opens in 14 seconds and closes in 16 seconds. The roof can be opened or closed at any time via a touch button on the central display.

Comfort in the passenger compartment with the top down is ensured by the neck warmer, which envelops the driver and passenger by blowing warm air directly from the newly designed seats. Standard on all models, it can be activated via a button on the comfort display, which can also be used to adjust the intensity of the air. An optional wind stopper provides even more protection from the elements, and it can be folded up in the trunk when not needed.

Design wise, the new GranCabrio was created in parallel with the GranTurismo and follows the understatement and elegance of its lines, reaffirming the concept expressed by the coupé with the optimal balance between aesthetic approach and unostentatious functionality. Just like in the GranTurismo, a union that has created a natural beauty and a design unaffected by fads, always remaining timeless.

The classic proportions of the brand’s cars have been maintained, with the long hood and the central body intersected by the four fenders; proportions even further highlighted in such a sporty model, just like the GranTurismo. The fabric roof maintains the clean line when closed and highlights the luxury of the passenger compartment when open, maintaining the cleanliness of the lines. As you can see, it’s a gorgeous car!

Under the hood, the GranTurismo Folgore is powered by a trio of powerful 300-kW electric motors that deliver an impressive 818 horsepower and 996 lb-ft of torque to all four wheels. 0-60 happens in a blistering 2.7 seconds, and it boasts a top speed of 202mph. As you can see, the electric GranTurismo will be much quicker than its gasoline-powered counterparts.

An 83.0-kWh battery pack should provide around 240 miles of driving range, but we’ll have to wait and see for ourselves when we get a chance to do our real-world range testing. Maserati says the GranTurismo Folgore can be fast charged at up to a 270 kW connection, enough to add 100 km of range in only 5 minutes by their yardstick.

Sitting on Maserati’s own 800V Atlantis architecture, the GranCabrio Folgore should deliver a range of between 260 and 278 miles, with DC fast charging getting you from 20% to 80% range in around 18 minutes. Those are pretty respectable numbers.

Maserati knows that the sound of the car is an important part of the equation, especially on a convertible where the sound can be even more appreciated. So they’ve developed Folgore sound: the natural acoustic dynamics of the electric motors driven by the inverters have been digitally shaped and integrated with the typical sound taken from the Maserati V8 tradition. So it’s “fake” sound being piped in and out, but supposedly it sounds good. I’ll be curious to hear it for myself.

Pricing for the 2024 Maserati GranTurismo Folgore hasn’t been released yet, but it’s expected to start somewhere around $215,000. If that’s the case, it wouldn’t be much more than it’s gas-powered counterpart, making it quite a value proposition.
