For the first time ever, Maserati Ghibli Hybrid has been introduced in Australia with a starting price of AU$139,990 that is equal to US$108,671.
The Hybrid Ghibli has a revised grille with tuning fork-like bars and revamped taillights with a boomerang-like profile inspired by the 3200 GT and the Alfieri concept. Blue accents can also be seen on the three side air ducts, the C-pillar badge, and the brake calipers, which is a hallmark characteristic of Maserati's entire electrified vehicle lineup.
There are some updates inside the cabin, especially on the embroidered seams of the seats, which otherwise feature a new infotainment system with a monitor that has expanded from 8.4 to 10.1 inches and a new instrument panel with updated graphics.
The Maserati Ghibli Hybrid is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which is assisted by a 48-volt alternator, an electronic supercharger, and a rear-mounted battery. The maximum power and torque are measured at 330 HP and 450 Nm, respectively. The model has an eight-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive, and it accelerates to 100 km/h in 5.7 seconds and tops out at 255 km/h. On the WLTP test cycle, the average fuel consumption is 8.5-9.6 l/100 km, and CO2 emissions range from 192 and 216 g/km.
