When choosing what to have for dinner, it can be tricky to decide whether to go for the healthy or unhealthy option. And buyers lucky enough to be considering the all-new Maserati GranTurismo will find themselves in a similar position, because it’ll be offered with the choice of V6 petrol or fully electric power.

The GranTurismo’s ‘healthy’ option is the fully electric Folgore (Italian for lightning) version. It’s powered by three electric motors, two mounted on the rear axle and one on the front, which combine to give it four-wheel drive. In total, the motors produce 750bhp and 997lb ft of torque, so the Folgore can sprint from 0-62mph in just 2.7sec.

Feeding the electric motors is a 93kWh battery that should give the Folgore a range of around 300 miles. That places it in line with the 751bhp Porsche Taycan Turbo S, which can go from 0-62mph in 2.8sec and travel an official 291 miles with its 93.4kWh battery. Like the Taycan, the Folgore has a 270kW rapid charging capability, meaning it should be able to charge from 10-80% in around 20 minutes if you can find a suitably powerful charging point.

For those who are less concerned about eating their greens, or being green, the new GranTurismo will also be offered with the choice of two 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged V6 petrol engines. In ‘Modena’ form, the V6 produces 483bhp and 443lb ft of torque, and in ‘Trofeo’ form it produces 542bhp and 479lb ft of torque. The latter can sprint from 0-62mph in 3.5sec, which is a tad quicker than the Aston Martin Vantage’s time of 3.6sec.

Minor styling differences distinguish the V6 and Folgore models, including different front and rear bumper designs aside from the obvious addition of quad exhaust pipes on the V6 models. 

Inside, the GranTurismo will get dual touch screens to operate the infotainment and climate controls (the former 12.3in and latter 8.8in), as well as a 12.0in digital driver’s display. Both models will have four seats, although the Folgore will have a slightly smaller boot than the V6 so it can accommodate the rear electric motors.

Full UK pricing and specifications are yet to be confirmed, but the GranTurismo is likely to start from £125,000 for the Modena, £150,000 for the Trofeo and £175,000 for the Folgore.
