The Maserati Levante Gets Hybrid Propulsion


It’s the second Maserati to go ‘cleaner’ after the Ghibli Hybrid

 

  • Powered by a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine combined with a 48-volt mild-hybrid setup with regenerative braking.

  • It can go from 0-100kmph in 6 seconds with a 240kmph top speed and a 330PS/450Nm output.

  • Gets a bespoke Azzurro Astro blue shade with blue accents all over. 

  • It comes with Maserati Connect that gives service reminders and can be synced with a smartwatch, smartphone or virtual assistant.

  • Could make its way to India towards the end of 2021.

It’s no secret the Italian Trident has planned a vast roadmap to electrify its entire lineup. It already took the first step back in July 2020 with the Ghibli Hybrid and now, the carmaker has unveiled its second electrified offering, the Levante Hybrid, at Auto Shanghai 2021. Here’s what’s changed for Maserati’s first electrified SUV.

 

The main topic at hand is what’s under the hood. The Levante Hybrid gets the same treatment as the Ghibli Hybrid, being powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine. Mild-hybrid propulsion is provided by a 48-volt system that can recover energy via regenerative braking. All this makes a combined 330PS of grunt and 450Nm of twist. Maserati claims this hybrid setup is faster than its diesel counterpart and lighter than both its petrol and diesel counterparts. Paired with a ZF 8-speed automatic gearbox that distributes power to all four wheels, it boasts a 0-100kmph sprint time of 6 seconds and a top speed of 240kmph. 

Maserati has added a new three-layer metallic Azzurro Astro blue shade for the Levante Hybrid. It is complemented by blue accents on the air ducts, the brake calipers, and the C-pillar logo to distinguish it from the hybrid and ICE models. 

These blue accents are also present on the inside with blue seams on the seat embroidery. Maserati has also equipped the Levante Hybrid with the Maserati Connect technology. It gives updates to the driver when a service is due and can be synced with a smartphone or smartwatch, via the Maserati Connect app. This connectivity is also possible at home via a virtual personal assistant, such as Amazon Alexa or Google Assist.

Back home, the Levante SUV is priced from Rs 1.49 crore to Rs 1.64 crore (ex-showroom). We still don’t know when the mild-hybrid version will make it to the India-spec model, but since it took around seven months to get the Ghibli Hybrid here, we can expect the mild-hybrid model to arrive towards the end of 2021.
