HISTORICAL INGENUITY

For more than eight decades Pininfarina has been making history, regularly breaking the mold and driving automobile design forward. It achieved this again in 2019 with its first self-branded, all-electric car. The Battista is pushing boundaries in the industry, proving the incredible potential of electric vehicles - yet another testament to the extraordinary legacy of Pininfarina. After waiting decades to make such a massive move, Pininfarina pivoted from designer to manufacturer with as loud a bang as possible, producing a vehicle that is nothing short of pure ingenuity. The Pininfarina Battista.

THE WORLDS FIRST PURE ELECTRIC LUXURY HYPER GT

As the automotive world addresses the transition from the internal combustion engine to electrification, Automobili Pininfarina launches as a purely electric car brand delivering only beautiful, exciting and highly desirable luxury cars. Over the next two decades, electrification will revolutionize car design, car ownership, and even the set-up of car companies. But from 2020, the Battista will immediately set new standards and inspire true love for EVs as the world's first luxury electric hyper GT.

WRITING ITS OWN PAGE IN AUTOMOTIVE HISTORY BOOKS

The Battista seeks to break new ground in the history of automotive when it arrives in 2020. Named after Battista 'Pinin' Farina, who founded the Carrozzeria Pininfarina coachbuilding company in 1930, the all-electric hyper GT will be designed and hand-built in very limited numbers at Pininfarina SpA under the watchful eye of Paolo Pininfarina, Battista's grandson and current Pininfarina SpA Chairman. The Battista, appropriately enough, will be the most powerful road-legal car ever designed and produced in Italy. 

ELEGANT, CLEAN, AND PURE

When it arrives in 2020, the Battista will be the most powerful car ever designed and built in Italy and it will deliver a level of performance that is unachievable today in any road-legal sports car featuring internal combustion engine technology. Faster than a current Formula 1 race car in its 0 -100 km/h sub-two second sprint, and with 1,900 hp and 2,300 Nm torque on tap, the Battista will combine extreme engineering and technology in a zero emissions package. No more than 150 Battistas will be hand-crafted in Italy and allocated equally between the regions of North America, Europe and Middle East/Asia.
