The Italian luxury car manufacturing company, Maserati returns to India, and to operate out of FCAI (Fiat Chyrsler Automobile India), it has announced the launch of three dealerships – Bagga Luxury Motocars LLP in Mumbai, Jubilation Autoworks in Bangalore and AMP Supercars Pvt, Ltd. in Delhi. Maserati dealers will have dedicated service plants and the service centers and dealerships will be trained by the company’s authorized trainers.
Mr Bojan Jankulovski, Head of Operations for India said: “Driving a Maserati is like wearing a tailor-made suit in a world of uniforms. By entering India, and other new markets around the world, we are able to grow by expansion.”
Though, the Italian-based automaker showcased new Ghibli and 6th generation Quattroporte at the event, it will also sell GranCabrio and GranTurismo in the country. Exciting, isn’t it? Well, Maserati is also working on a Sports Utility Vehicle, which will be marketed in 2016 internationally alongside India.
Motivation for the Maserati Ghibli will come from a 3.0 liter diesel engine, which is good for churning out 275 horsepower with 570 newton meters of torque. The engine will be paired with 8-speed automatic gearbox. Brand’s another luxury flagship sedan, the Quattroporte with 9700 units last year, stands second in the list. It will be offered with a choice of 3.8 liter V8 and 3.0 liter V6 petrol powerplants, in addition to a 3.0 liter V6 diesel one. On the other hand, the GranCabrio and GranTurismo will be propelled by either 4.2 liter or 4.7 liter V8 petrol engines.
The automaker is planning to expand in other parts of India, and aims to set up dealerships in Hyderabad, Kolkata, Chennai and Ahmedabad.
