No one, it appears, is immune from the electric bug. Maserati has become the latest premium sports car brand to talk about electrification in a relatively big way. Word from Europe is that they have decided to launch a new electric sports car by 2020. Assumably it will take on the upcoming all-electric Porsche Mission E.

Maserati Alfieri Concept 4

Based on the Alfieri concept car that was shown in 2014 at various international motor shows, the sports car will likely stay as a compact two-seater. We don’t yet know if it will use clean-sheet under garments or will share with the likes of Fiat 124 Spider. Regardless, it will employ the use of a lithium-battery power pack system with a couple of electric motors. Total system output is expected to exceed 350kW. Maserati is known for some of the most entertaining exhaust tailpipe sounds, so the artificial solution to be utilised will have a big pair of shoes to fill.
