Pininfarina’s New All-Electric Battista Hypercar Is Now In The Making
Pininfarina has announced that its Battista electric sports car has entered series production at its atelier in the Piedmont region of Italy.
The uber-sleek vehicle, which costs £1.7 million, is being produced in a dedicated 7,546-square-foot space located at the company’s Cambiano headquarters. A team of 10 craftspeople will build each Battista, with each EV taking around 1,250 hours to complete.
The Battista is set to boast an all-electric powertrain that can pump out 1,900 hp, with Pininfarina calling it the “world’s first pure-electric hyper GT.”
“The Battista hyper GT is the realisation of a dream, which began with design icon Battista ‘Pinin’ Farina’s ambition to create a beautiful car bearing only the Pininfarina name,” commented Pininfarina CEO 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.”
