Maserati to enter Formula E

20 January 2022

The first step in Maserati’s new motorsport strategy will be to enter the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship in 2023.

Series founder Alejandro Agag hailed the deal as an “incredible moment” for the series, adding: “The ABB FIA Formula E World Championship provides the perfect environment for the most dynamic and innovative high-performance car brands to showcase their technological capabilities alongside their sporting ambitions.”

The first Italian brand to compete in the series, it will enter in 2023 with the Gen3 package, the fastest, lightest, most powerful Formula E racing car ever. Maserati’s high-performance heritage, allied to its approach towards electrification, aligns perfectly with the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship. The Formula E campaign will be the trailblazer for ‘Folgore’, its full electric range. All new Maserati models will also be available in 100% electric solutions including Maserati Grecale, Maserati GranTurismo and GranCabrio and the Maserati MC20 super sportscar.

The last time Maserati was represented in single-seater racing was with Maria Teresa De Filippis, the first woman to qualify for a Grand Prix, aboard a 250F

Davide Grasso, Maserati CEO, commented: “The Maserati brand is going back to the future, going back to its roots of racing. We are powered by passion and innovative by nature. We have a long history of world-class excellence in competition and we are ready to drive performance in the future.”

Grasso continued: “In the race for more performance, luxury, and innovation, Folgore is irresistible and it is the purest expression of Maserati. That’s why we decided to go back to racing in the FIA Formula E World Championship, meeting our customers in the city centres of the world, taking the Trident forward into the future”.

Maserati is now part of the STELLANTIS automotive group, which is to invest €30bn through to the end of 2025 to develop its interests in electrification.

“It is a great pleasure for STELLANTIS Motorsport to play a part in getting Maserati back in the Race,” commented Jean-Marc Finot, Senior VP, STELLANTIS Motorsport. “Beyond this piece of history, Maserati Formula E will be our technological laboratory to accelerate the development of high-efficiency electrified powertrains and intelligent software for our road sports cars. Formula E is the perfect Championship for this purpose.”
