2020 Pininfarina Battista Hypercar

It’s certainly a daunting prospect when Pininfarina enters the same automotive market as other electric car manufacturers. The Italian tuner decided to take its first step into the realm of electric vehicles last year, and now, they’ve shown us the fruits of their labor — a monstrous hypercar by the name of the Battista.

Pininfarina is taking no prisoners with its latest offering — boasting a magnificent 1,900-horsepower and 1,696 lb-ft of torque, the limited-run hypercar utilizes best-in-class EV technology courtesy of Croatia’s leading electronic powerplant developer, Rimac. A carbon fiber monocoque, subframe, and roof demarcate the designer’s commitment to a lightened, eco-conscious vehicle, while a liquid-cooled 120 kWh lithium-ion battery pack and a torque vectoring system distribute adequate power to each wheel, independently. The Battista boosts from 0-62 miles per hour in less than two seconds, eventually reaching 186 mph in just around 12 seconds — and subsequently, it tops out at an estimated 217 mph. With a range of nearly 280 miles, it’s safe to say that Pininfarina has successfully contributed to the reformation of the EV industry — but we’ll have to wait until 2020 to see how the car really fares.
