A few months ago, Maserati unveiled the Ghibli Hybrid. Even though the car uses just a mild-hybrid unit at 48V, the Italians have decided to call it a hybrid. We don’t know why, but marketing is high these days.
Today, Maserati unveiled the Levante Hybrid, which, as you expect, uses the same system found on the current Ghibli Hybrid.
It has a 2.0 liter four-cylinder petrol engine that is backed up by an ISG at 48V to assist the combustion engine during starts or other times. The engine delivers 330 horsepower and 450 Nm peak of torque, so this won’t be the quickest Levante we have seen.
The SUV can run from not to 100 km/h in 6 seconds, while the top speed is clocked at 240 km/h.
Our friends from Motor1 have managed to reach a Maserati official who said the both Ghibli and Levante Hybrid will not be available in the US and Canada for the time being.
