Automobili Pininfarina has finally revealed the name of its much-anticipated all-electric Hypercar, which was codenamed PFO. The new car will be called the Pininfarin Battista, which will pay homage to the founder of the Italian design house, Battista Farina. Set to be the second series production car ever from the Italian brand, the Battista electric Hypercar will come with the Pininfarina badging.
The Battista will source all-electric tech and underpinnings from the renowned hypercar maker Rimac. This model is claimed to produce close to 1900bhp of power. It will achieve 0-100kmph in less than 2 seconds. The Pininfarina Battista will be the most powerful and fastest car ever made in Italy. Just to inform you, Automobili Pininfarina and the Pininfarina design house are both owned by the Mahindra Group.
Commenting on the naming of the new all-electric Hypercar, 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, technological 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."
This hypercar's all-electric powertrain is claimed to offer 1900bhp of power and massive 2,300Nm of torque. The vehicle can achieve 0-100kmph in less than 1.9 seconds before hitting a top speed of about 402kmph. What's fascinating is that this all-electric supercar is claimed to offer a range of over 450kms on a single charger. The Battista will also come with a quick charge capability, which charges the battery up to 80% in just 30-40 minutes.
The Pininfarina Battista will make its global debut at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. The company has already teased the all-electric hypercar several times. It is clear that Pininfarina's will emphasize more on design of the car, which is most likely to be stunning as well as functional. Only 150 units of the car will be produced and the production will start from late 2020. 50 units of the car are located to the US, 50 to Middle-East and Asia and rest will head to Europe. It is expected to cost around USD 2 to 2.5 million, which is approx around Rs 14.5 crore to Rs 18.12 crore.
