Volvo recently announced that in two years all of its models will have an electrified powertrain and now Maserati is following suit. Fiat Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne has announced that starting with the 2020 model year all Maserati models will have some sort of electrification under the hood.
Fiat Chrysler hasn’t jumped on the electric bandwagon as fast as its rivals, but it’s now saying that by 2022 half of its models will be electrified. The Maserati brand is going to lead the charge with every model being electrified.
“When it [Maserati] completes the development of its next two models, it will effectively switch all of its portfolio to electrification”, Marchionne recently told investors and journalists.
“As these products come up for renewal post 2019, it will start launching vehicles which are all-electric and which embody, I think, what will be considered state of the art technology.”
