According to Autocar, Plug-In Hybrid versions of all Maserati models in its range are expected to hit the market by 2020. 

Maserati wants to bring their vehicles closer to government and customer demands for more ecological, plug-in hybrid vehicles. But, as Giulio Pastore, Maserati's European general manager, stated for Autocar, they are entering the process only and simply "because they have to."

The very first Plug-In Hybrid Maserati will be the Levante SUV and will become available in 2018. In the next couple of years, Quattroporte, Ghibli, GranTurismo and GranCabrio are expected to follow. The only model without a plug-in hybrid makeover will be the Alfieri sports coupe, which was supposed to arrive in 2016, however the Italian carmaker decided to extend its development process, so it's not very likely to see the car anytime before 2018. 

According to Pastor, a hybrid powertrain in their vehicles will not in any way affect their performance, as they will only electrify their models, if that means they can keep "the sportiness of the range." He is determined that otherwise they just "won't do it."
