Maserati’s Grugliasco plant passes 100,000 mark

Maserati has passed an important milestone in its 102-year history after the 100,000 car produced at its Avv. Giovanni Agnelli plant in Grugliasco, Turin, rolled off the production line.

The car, a white Quattroporte GranSport, is destined for China, and was completed during the morning of December 5.

The Grugliasco plant, known as AGAP for short, is one of three Maserati production centres, alongside the Mirafiori factory in Turin and the historic base of Modena.

In a statement, Maserati’s chief operating officer for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, Alfredo Altavilla thanked the staff at the plant for their hard work and, in particular, development of the Quattroporte.

 “The Maserati brand's impressive growth during the last few years has been one of the major developments at the Premium end of the market; the sixth generation of the Maserati saloon, developed here at Grugliasco, is the best-selling Quattroporte of all time and almost 70,000 units of the Ghibli, built here, have now left the production line, meaning that in little more than three years it has become the most successful Maserati of all time," he said.

“With the Levante, the brand has now moved into the SUV segment and the ‘Maserati spirit’ has also reached the Mirafiori plant, where the Levante is produced. The men and women who work here at the Avv. Giovanni Agnelli Plant at Grugliasco are already well aware of this because many of them mentored their Mirafiori colleagues during the production launch and build-up phases for the new Levante SUV, acting as ambassadors for the brand's craftsman-like care and attention to detail.”
