The all-new Maserati Ghibli Hybrid has arrived in Australia, marking the Trident brand’s first steps into the world of electrification and has a starting price from $139,990 plus the usual costs.

Both the Ghibli and Levante hybrids utilise a 2.0L 4 CYL mild hybrid engine that produces power of 330hp and torque of 450Nm delivered from just 1,500rpm,

The new Ghibli Hybrid’s performance data is very impressive: top speed of 255km/h and acceleration from 0 to 100km/h in 5.7 seconds.

The AWD Levante will have a top speed of over 240km/h and acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 6 seconds

Maserati insists that Ghibli Hybrid occupants will still revel in the unmistakable sound that characterises all Maserati models, thanks to the optimised exhaust, which includes specially designed resonators.

The new Ghibli Hybrid represents the first step in a plan that will lead to the electrification of all new Maserati models
