Below the Levant
Maserati Grecale – first pictures of the SUV
Maserati already revealed the name Grecale for a new SUV model below the Levante to be launched at the end of 2021. Now there are the first official pictures from Italy showing a corresponding prototype while driving at the Maserati main plant.
The re are large air vents and LED headlights at the front, and two-part reflectors can also be seen at the rear, the graphics of which echo the boomerang design of the rear lights of the 3200 GT, built from 1998 to 2001 and designed by Giugiaro. In addition, a roof edge rear spoiler, a sloping roof line and four entry doors can be seen, which is not really surprising.
Technically, the Grecale is based on the rear-wheel drive platform used by Alfa Romeo for Giulia and Stelvio. As with these, the power spectrum of the internal combustion engines in the Maserati offshoot should start above 200 hp and reach well over 500 hp. Maserati has already announced that, in addition to conventional drives, it will also be launching an electric version with the addition of Folgore (“lightning”) for each series in the future. In the case of the Grecale, this E variant, which will presumably be launched in 2022, should have an 800-volt architecture with corresponding fast charging technology.
The battery could then provide approximately 100 kWh.
