The livery of the first fully electric race car from Maserati, the Tipo Folgore Gen3, has been unveiled ahead of season 9 of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, which will begin in 2023.
Maserati is the first Italian OEM to enter the all-electric race series, and displayed its 2023 entrant to the public for the first time in its home city of Modena, Italy.
Taking inspiration from the Trident brand’s iconic blue, the Maserati Tipo Folgore Gen3 livery was designed to deliver a contemporary, pure look. The trident takes center stage on the nose cone, while the Maserati Corse logo containing the Italian Tricolore is situated on either side of the race car’s bulkhead.
Gen3 is poised to be the most powerful and efficient Formula E car to date, with the combination of the front- and rear-mounted powertrains delivering 600kW of regenerative power and 95% power efficiency. This enables over 40% of the energy used during a race to be generated by regenerative braking alone.
Knowledge and expertise from on-track experiences and technology and software used within the race series will be used to improve the Italian OEM’s road cars, ahead of Maserati introducing its all-electric Folgore range.
Maserati and the Tipo Folgore race car are scheduled to head to Valencia, Spain in the coming weeks for pre-season testing ahead of the Formula E season opener at the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez City circuit in Mexico on January 14, 2023.
