The all-electric bandwagon is on a roll, with the latest brand to hop aboard being Italian luxury automaker Maserati. Its first all-electric car will be an iteration of the upcoming Alfieri model. However, if you are interested in purchasing the model, be ready to wait until 2020 when this all-electric version of the car is expected to be delivered to dealerships; the V6 model will only be released in 2019 and that is expected to be the first real-world version of the Alfieri.

Named after the founder of the brand, Alfieri Maserati, the Alfieri concept car made its debut at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. It was 2+2 grand tourer concept, boastiong a compact yet aggressive design. The model presented had a V8 engine with 460hp, but the first version that is set to hit the dealers at 2019 will get a V6 engine with as-yet-unspecified power. Only after this will the all-electric version’s release follow, possibly since the chassis needs to adapted to suit both fuel and electric versions.

The two-seater sports car will have front bumper spoiler and rear diffuser made from carbon fiber with aluminum inserts. Instead of analog instrument dials, the driving cabin will feature TFT displays.
