Maserati has kicked off its electrification plans with the new Ghibli Hybrid.
The saloon car ditches its old V6 engine in favour of a new, more efficient 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine linked up to a mild hybrid system.
The exterior has been tweaked to showcase the car’s greener credentials, with blue details and a grey colour which is unique to the electrified model.
Two trims will be available from launch – sporty GranSport and high-end GranLusso.
Maserati claims that the new powertrain will match its predecessor’s performance, but with a significant reduction in emissions.
As such, the Italian firm claims CO2 emissions as low as 192g/km and economy figures from 33.2mpg.
Despite this, the Ghibli still pushes out 325bhp and should be able to cover the 0-60mph sprint in 5.5 seconds.
Its top speed stands at a claimed 158mph.
The new Ghibli Hybrid is available to order now with prices starting from £58,220.
