Since debuting in 2013, the Maserati Ghibli has only been treated to minor updates hardly more exciting than new wood trims and wheel designs. At first glance, this trend looked to be continuing with the 2020 Maserati Ghibli, but real change is finally coming.
Maserati is on a quest to electrify its lineup, and the Ghibli is slated to be the first of its models to adopt a hybrid-electric powertrain. A cosmetic face-lift is likely to accompany the update.
As of this writing, the Trident brand is being rather coy about its time line. Press releases don't specify when in 2020 the hybrid Ghibli will be revealed. Maserati's website doesn't mention the upcoming changes. There's also no word on whether the hybrid powertrain will replace or augment the current gas V6.
Taking all this into account, we'd wager that the electric Ghibli won't be a reality until the second half of 2020, or perhaps as an early 2021 model. Keep an eye out for its official release in the coming months.
