Ever wonder if there ever will be an electric Maserati? Well, if it’s up to Maserati’s chief Harald Wester , then the answer is no.

According to Wester, who recently spoke at the 2013 Shanghai Motor Show, “all this discussion about zero emissions is nonsense.”

Wester’s argument is that nobody in the industry is talking about how efficiently the battery pack is charged, saying that it varies from area to area depending on numerous factors like how the energy is produced. We have to sort of agree with him.

However, Wester does say that some time in the future, the brand will be forced to create a hybrid model in order to meet stricter emission regulations, especially in United States. He says that Maserati is even considering going the diesel route.
