Will be offered in both petrol- and electric versions.
It is part of Maserati’s considerable revival plans.
The Grecale could quickly become the brand’s best-seller.
Maserati is bursting with energy in a year where most feel deflated. So far, they’ve revealed the new Ghibli Hybrid, the Trofeo collection, and most recently, the awe-inspiring MC20. And they’re not done yet as they’ve just announced the Grecale, a small SUV that could change the brand’s fortunes around.
It’s no secret that Maserati’s had a hard time leaving its mark on the luxury car and SUV segments in North America. While the MC20 will not generate volume, it has created a buzz about the Italian car company and now’s the best time to introduce their potential best-seller.
The small SUV will share much of its underpinnings, according to autocar.co.uk, with the Alfa Romeo Stelvio and will be assembled alongside it at FCA’s plant in Cassino, Italy. Although structures will be shared, the Grecale, named after the fierce north-east wind of the Mediterranean Sea, will exclusively use Maserati-sourced powerplants.
Maserati’s future also holds the fully-electric rebirth of the Granturismo and Grancabrio, to go along with the convertible and electric versions of the MC20. By 2023 or 2024, the next-generation Levante should see the light of day.
The Maserati Grecale is expected to launch in 2021.
