Car news is just totally ELECTRIC these days! And so are the cars themselves. More and more manufacturers are adding, and keep adding, new electric vehicles to their production road map. And Maserati is the latest to get on board.
The company has been promising some electric car news and teasing the world with little bits of information about the electric cars fans have been hoping to see for a couple of years already – making some of their followers impatient.
Now, Maserati has decided to let the world know of their grand plans with a unique taste of the car that few would ever have anticipated: its sound.
The truth about sports cars is that their fans truly live for the sounds of their engines, many refusing to ever taint it with music or, Lord forbid, chatter. But apparently, Maserati is taking a unique approach to this concern: What, if anything, will the Maserati EVs sound like?
They’ve released a preview of the meticulously engineered hum – a compensational token to soften the blow of their other announcement: that the production is undergoing a slight delay.
It was actually all the way back in 2014 that Maserati announced that their V8-engined Alfieri concept was good to go for production as both a fully electric vehicle and a plug-in hybrid.
It wasn’t all happy news at the time – the news was synonymous with the death of the existing GranTurismo generation and the GranCabrio generation, which would both be replaced by the new generation of 100 percent electric models. The original launch date for these new models was announced as 2020 at the time, but now that the year has finally rolled around, they’ve let us know that it’s been pushed back a year.
But at least fans can rest assured that they won’t necessarily lose the soothing sounds of their engines, along with the actual engines themselves.
