Ahead of next week's official North American debut, high-performance sports car and luxury electric vehicle manufacturer Automobili Pininfarina previews its new electric hypercar, the Battista. The vehicle was previously unveiled at last month’s Geneva International Motor Show.

“Electricity is the enabler for us to develop new automotive landmarks – the Battista will be our first car, and the most powerful car that will have ever been designed and built in Italy," says Michael Perschke, CEO, Automobili Pininfarina. "Just eight months after making its private global debut under the codename PF0 at 2018’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, we are back with our beautiful production-ready model, and an intention to return to Pebble this year with PF1 – our next exciting pure-electric luxury car.”

Designed as a hyper performance car as well as a drivable luxury vehicle, the Battista is powered by a 120 kWh battery that is connected to four electric motors, one positioned at each wheel. Together, they dish out 1,900 horsepower and 1,696 pounds-per-foot of torque. The Battista will reportedly travel 300 miles on a single charge, while transitioning from 0 to 60 miles per hour in less than two seconds, faster than a Formula 1 car.

Automobili Pininfarina will release 50 of the $2.5 million EV hyper GTs in America, leaving the remaining 100 to be split equally between the European and Middle East/Asia regions. Anyone interested in applying to purchase the Battista can do so here.
