Electric hypercar

named by Pininfarina

Pininfarina Battista

PININFARINA has announced that the name of the first car in its luxury electric vehicle portfolio will be the Battista.

Named after Battista ‘Pinin' Farina, the founder of the Carrozzeria Pininfarina coachbuilding company that he started in 1930, the all-electric hypercar will be designed and hand-built in very limited numbers at Pininfarina SpA in Italy.

The company says the model, which will be revealed at the Geneva Motor Show next March, will be the most powerful Italian performance car ever.

Power and torque equate to 1,900bhp and 2,300Nm, meaning the Battista has the potential to accelerate to 62mph in less than two seconds, faster than a Formula 1 car, and break the 250mph top speed barrier - all with a potential zero emissions range of over 300 miles.

No more than 150 Battistas will be available from late 2020 at a price estimated between US$2m and US$2.5m.
