Maserati is testing an electric power system, and industry sources say it will be used for the next generation of GranTurismo and GranCabrio models. In a video teaser that appeared today on Maserati's press site, the characters MMXXI appear, going into production in 2021. This is the year when the upcoming Maserati GranTurismo with electric drive will be launched, followed a year later by the Maserati GranCabrio.
Unlike other electric power plants, which tend to be silent, one designed by Maserati will be intentionally noisy. According to Maserati, its engineers are looking for a flagship sound that can successfully replace the one produced by the 4.7-liter V8 engine. If we hear the sound of the prototype from the video clip below, we can get a pretty clear idea of the Italians ' intentions.

The electric transmission, developed in Maserati's home, will be equipped with three electric motors to provide an all-wheel drive system with torque vectoring capabilities-a common goal for a car with a pronounced sporty character. Maserati additionally promises short loading times and significant autonomy-features that are often mutually exclusive.
The video teaser was released shortly after Maserati showed off photos of the masked prototype. This is what is called a "test-mule" used to test the new transmission system, in this case it is a modified version of the Alfa Romeo 4C. it has a slightly larger sensor than the original model, huge air intakes and flared wings to make room for wide wheels.
