Maserati only manufactured racing vehicles for the first two decades since the company existed. Its first automobile was the Tipo 26, a two-seater Grand Prix racing car with a steel ladder-type frame and inline-8 engine. At the first race the Tipo 26 was entered into, the 1926 Targa Florio, the vehicle finished first in the Grand Prix class and ninth in the overall rankings. Today, Maserati makes a variety of luxury cars and SUVs. Its current model lineup includes the Grecale, MC20, Quattroporte, Levante, and Ghibli. Maserati sold 51,500 vehicles worldwide in 2017, the highest sales in recent years for the company.
Maserati recently announced a series of changes to its vehicle lineup, including the addition of several EV models. Starting with the fully-electric GranTurismo in 2023, the company will also introduce an EV version of its upcoming Grecale SUV, along with electrified versions of its MC20, Quattroporte, and Levante in 2025. Maserati intends to make an electric version of all of its car models by 2025, with the overall plan involving transitioning its entire model line to an all-electric setup by 2030.
