September will be the month when Maserati unveils its highly anticipated MC20 supercar, but in the meantime, the company with the Trident logo is preparing another revelation. Rather than moving to a new generation, the Ghibli will do a facelift about seven years after entering the market. Today’s Ghibli is not only the company’s first car to get a diesel engine, but in about a month, it will also be the first to offer a hybrid powertrain.
A new teaser video released this week by Maserati reveals that the envelopes will finally be removed on July 15. The electrified Ghibli has been waiting for a long time since the Italian brand announced the greener version almost a year ago. The mid-cycle update formula will also be applied to the Levante and Quattroporte models in the coming months.
Maserati planned to unveil the Ghibli 2021 at the Beijing Auto Show in April, but the coronavirus pandemic has forced organizers to postpone the event to September. Rather than waiting until then, the legendary Italian brand will organize an online event to show its luxury sedan in facial features with an electrified configuration.
The Ghibli hybrid should be of the plug-in type and will pave the way for a series of electrified models. The company’s product roadmap to 2023 shows that virtually all models will adopt electrification, including the refurbished Levante and Quattroporte. The aforementioned MC20 will be offered as a pure electric vehicle, as will the next generations of GranTurismo, GranCabrio, Levante and Quattroporte. In addition, a new sub-Levante SUV will also generate a zero emission derivative.
The first electric vehicles are scheduled for 2021 when production of the next GranTurismo and GranCabrio begins following an investment of 800 million euros (approximately $ 907 million). It should be mentioned that Ghibli’s next generation model does not appear anywhere in this 2020-2023 product roadmap, which means that the refurbished car will remain until 2024 at the earliest.
