New Pininfarina Battista will hit 300km/h in 12-seconds
Only 150 of these all-electric hypercars will be built.
Automobili Pininfarina just unveiled one of the year's most eagerly awaited hypercars at the Geneva Motor Show. Dubbed the Battista, this luxury electric vehicle promises 1,420kW and 0-100km/h acceleration in under two seconds.
The Pininfarina electric hypercar promises a total of 1,420kW from its four electric motors (one for each wheel). According to the automaker, it can deliver 0 to 300km/h acceleration in less than 12 seconds. Its top speed should exceed 400km/h and it boasts some 450km of range. The firm even recruited the German pro racing driver, Nick Heidfeld (former Formula 1 and Formula E) as its test and development driver.
Production will be limited to 150 Battista vehicles worldwide – with 50 for the US, 50 for Europe and 50 for the Middle East and Asia – and the first deliveries are expected at the end of 2020. Pricing is expected to be in the region of $2-$2.5 million per vehicle (roughly R28,422,900 to R35,528,625).
After this electric hypercar, Pininfarina – which belongs to India's Mahindra & Mahindra – intends to develop other production models, starting with an SUV.
