Maserati Levante Hybrid SUV
The spark of electrification hits the “Maserati of SUVs”. They say that lightning never strikes the same spot twice, but that’s just a legend: the incandescent flash that electrified the Ghibli Hybrid last year continues its path and prepares to ignite all future Maserati models.
Maserati Levante Hybrid marks a bold step forwards into the future of Maserati. This new step combines the two-litre 4-cylinder thermal engine with a 48-volt Hybrid system that allows to the driver to recover energy during deceleration and braking. Technology meets exclusivity; power combines with a respect for the environment. Accepting less than the best is not an option.
This latest evolution in the SUV is lighter than its corresponding petrol version: faster, greener and even more iconic. Incredible performance with minimal impact on the environment. With a maximum speed of 240 km/h, and 0 to 100 km/h in just 6 seconds, the Maserati Levante Hybrid reaches 330 hp of maximum power and 450 Nm of torque at 2,250 rpm. But do not worry, despite the hybridization, the Brand’s unmistakable trademark – the distinctive Maserati sound – still remains.
New icons in the Brand’s voyage towards electrification, bold blue cobalt illuminates details throughout the Maserati Levante Hybrid: from the three signature side air intakes, to the brake callipers; from the logo on the rear pillar, to the embroidered stitch work on the interiors. The futuristic lightning bolt takes shape in the metallic tri-layer colour “Azzurro Astro”, chosen for the launch of Maserati Levante Hybrid. Iridescent and magic at the same time: a perfect balance that shifts between blue, when touched bathed in light and grey when in the shadows. Blue like the sky above Modena and like the oceanic home of the God Neptune, who lent his Trident to the Maserati brothers.
Maserati Levante Hybrid is a SUV built of contrasts: balancing performance with reduced consumption, similarly, its global launch will be both virtual, on houseof.maserati.com, and physically at the Shanghai Auto Show.

Press release by:
Levante Hybrid combines the 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 optimally balancing the masses of the vehicle. All designed to make Levante Hybrid even more agile and fun to drive.
Thanks to a maximum power output of 330 hp and torque of 450 Nm delivered from just 2,250 rpm, the performance data of the new Levante Hybrid, only available with all-wheel drive, is impressive: a top speed of over 240 km/h and acceleration 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 customisation programme, Maserati Fuoriserie.
Other exterior and interior details contribute to this car’s immediately recognisable design: some are in blue, the shade chosen to identify hybrid cars, already used by Maserati on Ghibli Hybrid.
