Maserati is introducing a new 10-year warranty program that extends the coverage of powertrain components like the engine and transmission in vehicles up to 10 years old.

A spokesperson for local Maserati distributor Ateco confirmed the Extra10 Warranty Program will be offered in Australia, with pricing currently being finalised.

We’ll update this story when we receive confirmed pricing.

The program is available “for all customers who own any Maserati model”, as long as it’s within nine years and six months from the registration date.

There’s no mileage limit either before activating the warranty or during it.

The 10-year warranty will be offered in addition to the standard three-year warranty, as well as the existing ‘Extended Warranty’ program that extends the warranty to four or five years – but the longest your car will be covered for overall is 10 years.

Many luxury automakers, including Alfa Romeo, Audi, Genesis, Jaguar, Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz and Volvo have already moved to a five-year manufacturer warranty, which is becoming a new standard.

BMW and Mini are sticking with a three-year manufacturer warranty though, like Maserati.

The Italian automaker says to check with any Maserati dealer to check whether your car is included in the Extra10 Warranty Program, and to get all the information needed to activate the extended warranty.

Additional services confirmed for other markets that come with the program include a pick-up and return service to your home, and a courtesy car.

Maserati isn’t the first automaker to introduce an extended warranty program longer than five years, with brands such as Audi, Aston Martin, and Ferrari offering similar schemes.

Grecale Folgore

Maserati is introducing more than just a new extended warranty.

In terms of new models on the horizon, Maserati’s local distributor, Ateco, also confirmed the petrol-powered Grecale SUV will arrive in the first quarter of 2023.

Completing the range at a later date locally will be the all-electric Grecale Folgore.

Set to debut towards the end of the year before going on sale globally in 2023, the range-topping Grecale Folgore will have a 400V electrical system, a 105kWh battery and “as much as 800Nm”.

MC20 Cielo

Maserati has also said production of the 2023 MC20 coupe will start in November 2022, and production of the 2023 MC20 Cielo spyder will start in January 2023.

A new GranTurismo is expected to debut imminently, and its all-electric Folgore variant confirmed to debut during 2023. Camouflaged prototypes of both have been previously teased and spied.

The Italian automaker recently announced it’s going all-electric by 2030 and will have at least one pure electric variant of every model in its lineup by 2025.

Maserati will also launch all-new generations of the Quattroporte sedan and Levante SUV, and both will be available with electric drivetrains. The MC20 is set to gain an electric version too.

Maserati is far from the first marque within the vast Stellantis brand portfolio to announce a cut-off date for sales of combustion-powered vehicles.

Abarth, DS and Lancia will become EV-only in 2024, Alfa Romeo will ditch ICE by 2027, and outside of China Opel/Vauxhall will only sell EVs by 2028.
