Pininfarina Battista Hypercar Catches Everyone’s Attention in Geneva

The new Pininfarina Battista is now the world’s most powerful road-legal hypercar. The new vehicle overtakes the likes of Koenigsegg and Hennessey Performance in terms of speed. The unit is also highlighted by its all-electric powertrain.

The Pininfarina Battista was unveiled at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. The new hypercar produces 1,900 hp from its four electric motors made by Rimac Automobili. Each electric motor is assigned to each wheel of the auto. Its whooping performance is complemented by the carbon fiber materials used in its body as well as an active rear wing.

The enormous output and lightweight construction of the Pininfarina Battista launch it from 0-60 mph in only 1.9 seconds. Automobili Pininfarina, the maker of the Battista, claimed that the vehicle is even faster than the acceleration of an F-16 jet. On the other hand, the car’s max speed is capped at 217 mph.

It should be noted that the battery of the auto also comes from Rimac. In full charge, the electric range of the vehicle can go as far as 280 miles.

The other key technical details about the Pininfarina Battista are still under wraps. However, its maker informed us that its production will start in 2020. Only 150 samples of the hypercar will be made, and each unit will carry a price of $2.2 million.

Automobili Pininfarina is based in Germany. The company is owned by Mahindra Group, an Indian multinational conglomerate. Pininfarina CEO Michael Perschke confirmed that 40 percent of the car’s global construction is already reserved. In the US, it is already close to 70 percent. They expect to sell all Pininfarina Battistas after the 2019 Pebble Beach car show in August.
