WHAT

Battista, the New Electric Hypercar designed by Pininfarina

Pininfarina SpA's customer "Automobili Pininfarina", a company fully owned by Mahindra&Mahindra, has announced the name of the first car in its luxury electric vehicle portfolio will be Battista.

Named after Battista ‘Pinin’ Farina, the founder of the Carrozzeria Pininfarina coach building company that he started in 1930, the all-electric hypercar will be designed, developed and hand-built in very limited numbers by Pininfarina SpA in Cambiano, Turin, under the watchful eye of Paolo Pininfarina, Battista’s grandson and current Pininfarina SpA Chairman.

Automobili Pininfarina represents an additional client for Pininfarina SpA, joining the list of the many prestigious car makers for which Pininfarina SpA will be designing cars in the future.

In aiming to be the world’s first fully-electric luxury hypercar, extreme levels of technology and functional design lie beneath the Battista’s carbon fibre exterior, supporting the delivery of staggering performance for a road car. Power and torque equate to 1,900 bhp and 2,300 Nm respectively, meaning the Battista has the potential to accelerate to 62 mph in less than two seconds, faster than a Formula 1 car, and break the 250 mph top speed barrier – all with a potential zero emissions range of over 300 miles.
No more than 150 Automobili Pininfarina Battistas will be available from late-2020 at a price estimated between US$2m and US$2.5m. 50 cars are currently allocated to the USA, 50 in Europe and 50 for the Middle East and Asia region.

Paolo Pininfarina, Chairman Pininfarina SpA, said: “This is genuinely a dream come true. My grandfather always had the vision that one day there would be a stand-alone range of Pininfarina-branded cars. This hypercar will boast world-beating performance, technology innovation and of course elegant styling. For me, we simply had to call it Battista. His dream becomes reality today as we link our glorious past with the future of motoring.”
