Maserati electric sports car a possibility in near future, says FCA CEO

Just about every major car manufacturer in the world is working on an all-electric vehicle of some kind at this point, desperate not to get left behind by the likes of Tesla. This certainly includes a number of Europe's biggest luxury brands, like BMW, Mercedes, Aston Martin, and Jaguar. But now Italy seems to be finally coming around to the idea, as an electric sports car from Maserati could see the light of day in the next few years.

Surprise! Maserati made its first ever SUV

Of all the automakers to launch an SUV - and a diesel one at that - at the Geneva Motor Show, Maserati probably wouldn't be your first guess.

Maserati has whipped the covers off of its latest concept, a 2+2 concept coupe dubbed the Alfieri that it teases may be "a door to the future" of the company's cars. The Italian company, still riding high from its well-received Super Bowl 2013 advert for the Ghibli, revealed the Alfieri at the Geneva Motor Show, and while there are no signs of a production date any time soon, Maserati is at pains to highlight the fact that the concept is fully functional.

Maserati Quattroporte Sport GT – don’t mention light clusters

There's a certain sort of European car aficianado that will forever blame the Americas for the excision of a rather distinctive set of rear light clusters. The clusters in question belonged to the Maserati Coupé and were a delicious boot-edge hugging boomerang, loved by reviewers on the EU side of the pond but, thanks to a poor showing in US popularity research, were replaced by frankly dull slabs of red tinted plastic. At the time, Maserati was reasonably apologetic about it, but the obvious lure of a spreading market dangled dollar signs in front of Italian eyes.

Niche, you see, is cool but not especially lucrative - particularly when you're owned by Ferrari and are inevitably seen as the loss-leading mass market option. So it must be to accountants' dismay and enthusiasts delight that the Maserati Quattroporte is still a rare sight on roads anywhere.
