2022 started off for Maserati, with the first 2022 Ghibli Hybrid arriving in Delhi. And now we have the electrified SUV, the all-new 2022 Levante Hybrid, in Mumbai. This is great news for the Delhi and Mumbaites, as they benefit from Maserati’s development in India.
Maserati India recently announced the launch of the 2022 Levante Hybrid. And now, the first 2022 edition has already landed in Mumbai. This unit belongs to Mr Abhishek Monty Agarwal, the founder of Purple Style Labs (PSL), one of India’s largest luxury fashion houses. He spoke about how he discovered the Maserati Levante on his trip to London way back in 2018. Like everyone, he was amazed by the SUV’s exterior and interior details. In fact, this is what makes the car immediately recognisable.
Maserati has always been an innovative carmaker. Now with Levante Hybrid, the aim is to improve the performance without any comprise to the brand values of delivering speed and agility. Levante Hybrid uses a 4-cylinder, 2-litre engine with a 48-volt Hybrid system. This helps to recover energy during deceleration and braking.
The hybrid car weighs less than a 6-cylinder petrol engine. Moreover, the SUV also has a better weight distribution as the battery is in the rear. This setup helps for optimal load capacity and balances the masses of the vehicle. The performance output of the motor is 330 hp and 450 Nm. With a top speed of over 240 km/h and 0 to 100 km/h timing of just 6 seconds, Levante is a hoot to drive.
In India, the 2022 Maserati Levante Hybrid is available with a starting sticker price of INR 1.48 Cr (Ex-showroom). With that price tag, Maserati Levante will definitely grab attention. Being a hybrid in 2022 is always a hit, and thus, Maserati will benefit in this compartment as well.
