Maserati had announced last year that all their future products will either be hybrid or electric.The company standing by their promise has now unveiled the Levante Hybrid , the brand’s first Electrified SUV.
Levante Hybrid combines the 4 cylinder, 2 litre engine with a 48 volt Hybrid system to recover energy during deceleration and braking. The hybrid car weighs less than the 6 cylinder engine equivalent (both diesel and gasoline), and above all has an even better weight distribution since the battery is placed in the rear without compromising the load capacity and optimally balancing the masses of the vehicle. All designed to make Levante Hybrid even more agile and fun to drive. Thanks to a maximum power output of 330 hp and torque of 450 Nm delivered from just 2,250 rpm, the performance data of the new Levante Hybrid, only available with all wheel drive, is impressive: a top speed of over 240 km/h and acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 6 seconds.
In terms of appearance, the Levante Hybrid launch version is characterised by a new metallic tri- coat colour called Azzurro Astro, available as part of the Brand’s customisation programme, Maserati Fuoriserie. Other exterior and interior details contribute to this car’s immediately recognisable design, some are in blue, the shade chosen to identify hybrid cars, already used by Maserati on Ghibli Hybrid. On the exterior, blue characterises the three iconic side air ducts, the brake calipers and the C- pillar logo. The same blue shade reappears inside the car, specifically on the embroidered seams
of the seats. Levante Hybrid is connected, thanks to the new Maserati Connect program.
