Maserati Grecale Folgore, autonomy and performance

Grecale Folgore is powered by two engines of 205 kW each, mounted one per axle, thus forming Maserati’s first electrified all-wheel drive system. The 557 horsepower of total power and 820 Nm of maximum torque ensure a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds, from 0 to 200 km/h in 16.1″ and a top speed of 220 km/h h electronically limited. The first Maserati electric SUV is powered by a 105 kWh battery with a 400 V electrical network, rechargeable in direct current up to 150 kWh and 22 kWh in alternating current and with a range of up to 501 km WLTP. Able to go from 20 to 80% charge in 29 minutes, it claims a consumption of 24 kWh per 100 kilometers

Driving Mode, Max Ran arrives

There are four driving modes on the Grecale Folgore, GT, Sport, Offroad and Max Range, which can be selected via the selector on the black forged steering wheel. The latter is also characterized by perforated leather and the blue engine start button. With Max Range mode the car obtains the maximum possible autonomy by applying energy saving strategies. It is recommended when the battery charge level drops below 16% and there is no immediately available charging point nearby. Limits top speed to 130 km/h, reduces accelerator pedal response and limits air conditioning power
