Welcome to a world first. This is the new Maserati GranTurismo Folgore. When it arrives next year, it’ll be Maserati’s first pure EV. And it’s quite something: a tri-motor layout powered by a 92kWh battery developing 750bhp.

There will be no hybrid option, but as well as this all-electric model the marque will offer the GranTurismo with the MC20 supercar’s twin-turbo V6 Nettuno motor with either 483bhp (in the entry level Modena version) or 542bhp (for the Trofeo).

But electric is the clever one, able to divvy power up between the motors and do complex torque vectoring stuff through corners. Range is quoted at 280 miles on the WLTP cycle. Petrols are likely to be around the £150k mark, this Folgore closer to £200,000. The name, by the way. It roughly translates as lightning or thunderbolt, and will be applied to all electric Maseratis in future. Folgore versions of the MC20 supercar and Grecale SUV will follow soon after.

Top Gear magazine’s head of car testing, Ollie Marriage, got behind the wheel on track to tell us all about it.
