2017 Maserati Quattroporte GTS

As of 2019, every Maserati model launched will have some form of electrification as part of its powertrain.

The first E Maserati should arrive in 2020, according to reports. And that development could pave the way for Maserati to enter the world of Formula E racing.

Fiat Chrysler’s Sergio Marchionne ruled out Ferrari joining the burgeoning racing circuit, but did open the door to another of the company’s brands. In a recent interview, he said: “We are looking at this with interest. Maybe with one of the others — not Fiat — but Alfa or Maserati.”

About The Author

Kevin Mio

Kevin’s passion for the automobile can be traced to years of sitting inside his uncle’s Corvette – even though it was stored in a garage and in desperate need of restauration. But the engine still worked and when it was fired up, it ignited a love affair that lives on to this day. With a background in journalism and years as an editor under his belt, Kevin jumped at the chance to edit and then manage the Driving section of the Montreal Gazette, where he would also cut his teeth as an automotive reviewer, while also writing about car news and all the latest concepts at car shows. He has also contributed to AutoGO, Auto123, Autotrader.ca and The Truth About Cars, popular automotive websites in Canada and the US. His passion for cars and sports is put to good use every summer when Formula One takes over Montreal for the Canadian Grand Prix, covering the week’s events for the past five years. He has also covered NASCAR and IndyCar racing in Montreal. Like a finely tuned pit crew, Kevin has also mastered how to quickly disconnect, move and re-secure a car seat from one press car to another in record time. Kevin is a member of the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) and was a co-chair of the 2016 EcoRun.
