Only 150 units of the Automobili Pininfarina Battista electric hypercar will be built
Scheduled to release later this year, the Automobili Pininfarina Battista electric hypercar is officially in production. The futuristic all-electric 1,900 horsepower GT will become the most powerful Italian car ever made.
According to the Mahindra-owned company, each Battista requires 1,250 hours to build, with the Anniversario model taking an extra 90 hours due to its special components and finish. The “world’s first pure-electric hyper GT”, as Pininfarina calls it, will be produced in a 7,546 square foot facility at the manufacturer’s headquarters in Cambiano, Italy.
“The Battista hyper GT is the realization of a dream, which began with design icon Battista ‘Pinin’ Farina’s ambition to create a beautiful car bearing only the Pininfarina name,” stated the CEO of Pininfarina, Per Svantesson. “We are proud to have achieved that goal and in doing so, we lead a movement into an exciting new luxury era, where design purity and a focus on sustainable innovations will shape a series of incredible new vehicles from Automobili Pininfarina.”
Featuring a sleek and striking design, the Automobili Pininfarina Battista electric hypercar is built with four electric motors that are connected to a 120 kWh battery. Along with its 1,900 hp, the Battista will pull with 1,725 pound-feet of torque to all four wheels. With this amount of power, the Battista can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in under 1.8 seconds with an electronically limited max speed of 217 mph. The Battista also has an EPA rating of 300 miles of combined range with a mileage of 290 in the city and 309 for the highway.
With a price of $2 million for the Automobili Pininfarina Battista electric hypercar, the Italian marque has also provided three packages. The “Eccellenza” package offers 5 years of maintenance for $72,000 or 10 years for $145,000, while the “Futura” package extends the warranty of the battery and powertrain for 10 years for $150,000. Last but not least, the “Eterna” package includes replacement body parts. Mind you, no one said this was an inexpensive hobby.
The final production unit of the Italian electric hypercar will make an appearance at the Monterey Car Week this August.
