2020 Pininfarina Battista – The Future of Cars and a Dream of the Past

Marking the 90th anniversary of the Pininfarina SpA design house, the Pininfarina Battista 2020 is about to bring revolution in the automobile industry. Delivering the long-held Pininfarina dream, it is about to become the world’s first luxury electric hyper performance GT.

The technical-development is overseen by the director of Automobili Pininfarina Sportscar, Rene Wollmann, formerly of Mercedes-AMG. In his words:” The mule vehicles running the chassis and the powertrain concepts for Battista have already achieved 80% of their performance capability without issue. This means that our EV performance is already equal to the most powerful combustion engine-powered hypercar currently in the world. And in the simulation and wind tunnel testing phase, by fine tuning the aero packaging, we’ve already seen a significant increase in the potential range of Battista versus our original prediction,” he added.

The company has appointed former Formula-One driver Nick Heidfield as its development driver and ambassador, who will also be driving the Battista prototypes. In the following six months, the company is set to deliver a thrilling pure-electric hypercar that seamlessly produces 1900 hp and 2300 Nm torque across a range of driving modes to suit different environments. These numbers make the Battista twice as powerful as a 2019 Formula One car, enabling it to go from 0-100 km/h in under 2 seconds, aiming to hit 300 km/h in under 12 seconds before achieving a speed of at least 350km/h. Theoretically, it is said to clock a top speed of around 402 km/h.

Built

 

Honing a carbon-fibre monocoque chassis and an all carbon stunning technological design and an elegant driver focus at the heart of the hypercar. The Battista is set to offer the hyper-car experience with zero emission. The weight distribution of the T-shaped 120 kWh battery is configured to optimise the Battista’s dynamic potential, with four motors independently transferring power to each wheel. Cooling circuits and systems are based around five radiators. The suspension is tuned to deliver an extremely thrilling and engaging yet a comfortable experience.

Productions

Pininfarina is looking to accelerate its development programme by exhaustive testing and extensive evaluation of the car’s performance in the coming months. The tests are set to be conducted in climates and environments that the Battista will be driven in, before the first batch of hand-built units get delivered to customers at the end of 2020 in Cambiano, Italy.

Luca Borgogno, the company-design boss has created a unique livery for the Battista prototypes. According to him,” To celebrate the 90th anniversary of the famous Pininfarina is now preparing the ultimate expression of Battista hyper-car design, ready for its world premiere at the next month’s Geneva International Motor Show.”

The production of the Battista is limited to 150 handmade units, offering its customers the option of complete personalization. The three Battista specifications to be presented in the Geneva Motor Show are set to reflect the potential of the hypercar. In its endeavour to become the fastest electric hyper-car, it signifies a long-lived family dream of from the founding days.
