The Pininfarina Battista's launch is right around the corner. Pininfarina is gearing up to launch its first all-electric hypercar, the Battista. Even though the brand is owned by Mahindra, the new owners have clearly respected the heritage of the Italian brand and named its first EV hypercar after its founder, Battista Pininfarina.
The news was notified via an online media briefing during the announcement of Mahindra's fourth-quarter results during FY2021. Pininfarina plans to produce just 150 examples of the Battista. Powering the Battista is one of the most powerful electric powertrains ever built with 1900bhp on tap.
If the power output feels familiar, it is because the powertrain is sourced from the Croatian EV manufacturer, Rimac Automobili. The connection to Rimac Automobili just doesn't end there, it even shares the production line and the platform with the Croatian built Rimac C Two electric hypercar.
With its four electric motors, a 120kWh battery pack, and an almost identical powertrain to the Rimac C Two, the Pininfarina Battista can catapult itself from 0-100km/h in just 1.9 seconds and onto a top speed of over 350km/h. The Italian electric hypercar can even cover more than 450kms on a single charge.
However, being electric, the kerb weight is on the higher side, tipping the scales at almost 1.95 tonnes despite using a carbon fibre monocoque chassis. The stopping power comes from 390mm disc brakes on all four corners paired with 6-pot brake calipers.
There are two tyre options. The Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres are suited for regular usage, while the more aggressive Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2R is suited for track usage, combined with a lighter set of ‘impulso' wheels.
Speaking of racetracks, the final stages of fine-tuning were done with the help of Formula 1 and Formula E driver, Nick Heidfeld. Driving this hypercar should be a next-level experience.
Thoughts On Pininfarina Battista Being Launched Soon
Even though the Pininfarina Battista is based on the Rimac C Two, it is the Battista that looks more ‘Monaco-friendly' with its bold yet cleaner looking lines. It gets a futuristic drivetrain that is environment friendly and can put all existing supercars to shame. It definitely is a win-win with this electric hypercar.
