Quote:
There's all-wheel drive capability with four individual motors at each wheel - with a highly efficient torque vectoring system in place - producing a total of 1,900hp and 2,300 Nm of torque, propelling the Battista from standstill to 100kph in under 2sec. 300 kph can be achieved in less than 12sec and the hypercar is capable of achieving a top speed of 350kph (using the performance package). The hypercar will provide a range of 450km.

"Ultimately, the Battista has to drive like a hypercar not an electric car," Automobili Pininfarina said.

Expected to cost $2 million, the Battista will go on sale in 2020, a year that marks the 90th anniversary of the Pininfarina design house. The hypercar fulfils the dream of Pininfarina's founder Battista Farina, after which it is named, of having a road car under its own brand name. Pininfarina plans to build 150 Battistas, with sales split equally between Europe, the US and Middle East/Asia.

This car surely looks superlative, looks like Pininfarina is back doing what it did best. Just the subtle amount of aero.

Default Pininfarina Battista EV with 1,874 BHP unveiled

Automobili Pininfarina has unveiled the Battista - the company’s first electric hypercar. It will be available from 2020 and is claimed to be the most powerful road-legal car designed and built in Italy.

2020 marks the 90th year of the car design house and the Battista pays homage to the founder.

The Battista gets a full-carbon fibre monocoque with carbon fibre body panels and front and rear aluminium crash structure. The electric car gets a front splitter and a full-width air dam, single barrel headlights connected by a white LED light stripe and an S-duct at the front. It gets butterfly doors, dual air intakes on the sides and 21-inch alloy wheels shod in Pirelli P Zero rubber. At the back, it gets an adjustable wing and slim tail lights.

On the inside, the car gets dual information screens on each side of the steering wheel. The left one controls dynamics and performance while the right handles media and navigation. A small slim screen directly in front of the driver displays all the essential data. Dual rotary dials control the 5 drive modes (left) and the transmission (right) respectively.

The Battista is powered by a Rimac-sourced battery pack and quad electric motors, one for each wheel. The power output is rated at 1,874 BHP and 2,300 Nm of maximum torque. The hypercar gets torque vectoring function. It is claimed to have a range of 450 km and the 0-100 km/h and 0-300 km/h times are claimed to be under 2 and 12 seconds respectively. The claimed top speed is over 350 km/h. Braking duties are handled by 6-piston 390mm carbon ceramic disc brakes.

Only 150 Battistas will be made and sold equally in the North America, Europe and the Asia / Middle East regions.

In 2018, Mahindra unveiled the Automobili Pininfarina EV brand which would use the design experience of the design house and the technology from the Mahindra's Formula E team.

This isn't a car but a sculpture! Such clean flowing lines on the outside and interiors too. Makes me drool already

The first thought that flashed across my mind was,"5 mile range under full acceleration and 500,000usd for battery replacement after one year of being parked in a millionaire's garage".

The cost of replacement of battery is the Achilles heel of the EVs.

I usually don't like the styling of modern supercars, but damn, that is one gorgeous machine. And 1874 BHP = . Some way of rolling out the first Pininfarina car under Mahindra's ownership.

Nick Heidfeld is helping them tune the handling.

Wow! The car looks drop-dead gorgeous. Thereís no 2 ways about it.
But isnít 1874 bhp a bit too much?
Will this model be sold in India?

I feel the same way. I think It's because modern supercars are all designed based on maximum aero afficiency, design dictated by engineers rather than traditional car designers. Surely as is this one, but they've found a very good balance between looks and drag reduction elements.

Indeed this is a nice looking car and I am very very proud that is this in a way an 'Indian' car ; ).

If you dont say which car it is, one would say its a Ferrari. To me although its gorgeous, its too much like Ferrari. Is it the only shape that Pininfarina can think of ?
