Production-spec Pininfarina Battista: what do we know?
As part of Automobili Pininfarina's participation in the celebrated Monterey Car Week festival in the US, the Battista will make its dynamic debut on local roads. The ultra-exclusive Battista Anniversario will also appear in public for the first time.
The first production-ready Battista will be shown with exposed carbon-fibre body panels and matching black wheels, upholstery and interior trim elements.
The Anniversario, meanwhile, is marked out by way of a bespoke aero-focused 'Furiosa' styling package and two-tone paint scheme to celebrate Pininfarina's 90th anniversary. Just five examples will be produced, each powered by the same 1,900hp, 2,300Nm quad-motor powertrain as the standard car.
Automobili Pininfarina CEO Per Svantesson said, "We are excited to showcase the beautiful and sustainable future of luxury to our clients, while celebrating more than 90 years of Pininfarina design heritage during Monterey Car Week. We look forward to our clients in the US experiencing the immense dynamic performance and personalised luxury of Battista for the first time.”
Pininfarina Battista to join growing club of electric hypercars
The Battista is one of several mega-output electric hypercars entering production in the coming months. Croatian outfit Rimac's Nevera, which shares elements of its powertrain with the Battista, was revealed in full earlier this year, and the similarly potent Lotus Evija will be fully signed off by the end of 2021.
The Battista is primarily aimed at left-hand drive markets, with the production-run of 150 units to be equally distributed among the US, Europe and the rest of the world. The EV is expected to go on sale in early 2022, at an estimated price of GBP 1.7 million (about Rs 17.5 crore).
Automobili Pininfarina is also readying a high-performance electric SUV that is due next year. This model will be available in both left- and right-hand-drive configurations and, as such, could make its way even to India, the home of Automobili Pininfarina’s parent firm Mahindra. The EV maker has said that it will have a family of five models by 2025.
