Maserati to go hybrid in the future, may take advice from Ferrari

Maserati is likely to develop a hybrid powertrain option for its next-generation vehicles, in part of a bid to improve the brand’s fuel-consumption and CO2 emissions of its cars. Maserati will most likely take some advice from Ferrari in the process, which has plans to offer hybrid versions across its entire lineup within the next three to four years.

While Maserati and Ferrari are no longer part of the same business unit within the Fiat Group, both brands are still a part of Fiat and the brands are still close to each other in terms of hardware.

Also to improve fuel-economy, Maserati will continue to reduce the weight of its vehicles.

Ferrari unveiled its new 599 GTB HY-KERS Concept at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show.
