Maserati Unveils Levante Hybrid In World Premiere
Breaking new ground in the SUV segment, Italian automaker Maserati has unveiled the Levante Hybrid in a physical and digital world premiere event. With the Brand’s first electrified SUV, Maserati takes a major step forward in its strategy for electrification, which began last year with the Ghibli Hybrid.
The Levante Hybrid combines a 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 balance.
Thanks to a maximum power output of 330 hp and torque of 450 Nm delivered from just 2,250 rpm, the Levante Hybrid can hit a top speed of over 240 km/h and accelerate 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 customization programme, Maserati Fuoriserie.
Special guests at the digital premiere of Levante Hybrid were David Beckham, the new Maserati Brand Global Ambassador, and Dardust, with an exclusive soundtrack.
