The Maserati MC20 Folgore electric supercar could be revealed as soon as next week, joining the Italian marque’s growing lineup of battery-powered models.

    In a teaser uploaded to social media, Maserati announced it will reveal its latest Folgore – translated to Lightning – electric variant at 4am AEST on April 16.

    Though it has not explicitly said this will be the electric MC20, the brand has previously targeted a 2025 launch for the zero-emissions supercar – alongside its plans to offer at least one battery-powered variant of each model before the middle of the decade.

    It could also be the electric version of the Maserati GranCabrio, the latest generation of which broke cover last month.

    The brand has said little about the electric car, other than saying it is “made in thunder”.

    Maserati has previously claimed the electric MC20 Folgore will be capable of accelerating from 0-100km/h in 2.8 seconds, reach a top speed of 310km/h and achieve a driving range of 323km (rated on the WLTP cycle).

    The twin-turbo 3.0-litre V6 engine currently powering the MC20 completes the 0-100km/h sprint in a claimed 2.9 seconds, with its 463kW and 730Nm outputs driving the rear wheels through an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission.

    As reported in January, Maserati has delayed the launch of its next-generation Quattroporte sedan and Levante SUV, due in 2027 and 2028 respectively.
