Since the concept of the Maserati Alfieri was first revealed back in 2014 at the Geneva Auto Show, the fans have been eagerly waiting for the production model and all those innovations that this Italian luxury carmaker has planned. According to the information we have got, it has been recently confirmed that we should hope for a new 2019 Maserati Alfieri model that will appear as a plug-in hybrid before the year 2020 when the Alfieri is planned to be all-electric.
As far as our team has been informed, the 2019 Alfieri should be available in two configurations – as a sports coupe with a hardtop and a convertible. It has been speculated that the coupe version will probably be the first to hit the market. However, it hasn’t been confirmed yet whether the new Alfieri is going to get a brand-new platform or just a modified one. The new platform will probably be found on that all-electric model after 2019. When it comes to exterior features of the new Alfieri, this concept car has shown a really long and lowered hood and a short rear end. Clearly, the Alfieri will be a really race-inspired and aerodynamic sports car. It has also been said that the carmaker will use lots of lightweight aluminum in its chassis construction, so the reduced weight will only improve the acceleration, efficiency and overall performance. Therefore, you can expect the new Alfieri to be larger than, for instance, Porsche 911, but lighter than the popular GranTurismo. The fans will probably love its powerful deep grille that looks like floating. All in all, the new Alfieri looks innovative and a bit aggressive with its styling that promises some excellent outputs.
Based on the concept of the 2019 Maserati Alfieri, we have seen that this attractive model will appear as a two-seater. Little has been known about the interior of the new Alfieri, but one thing is for sure – the carmaker will rather pay attention to overall comfort and luxury than to its technology and other details. It will use some high-quality materials such as leather and aluminum. Inside the new Alfieri, you can expect a simple, sophisticated and modern cabin.
As we have already mentioned in the intro, the 2019 Alfieri will probably the last plug-in hybrid before it becomes all-electric. When it comes to its gasoline engine, the Alfieri concept has been presented with a 4.7-liter naturally-aspirated V8, but it seems that the production model might actually come with a 3.0-liter Ferrari-built twin-turbo, mated to a manual transmission. It should be able to deliver either 350 or 450 horsepower, but we hope for more official numbers and information soon.
2019 Maserati Alfieri Release Date and Price
The release date of the 2019 Alfieri is quite a mystery at the moment, but the hardtop version should probably make its debut in 2018 while the convertible could be shown next year. The price of the Alfieri should start around $61,000.
