Pininfarina Battista electric hypercar sets acceleration and braking records
Italian luxury carmaker Pininfarina has finally revealed the performance figures of its Battista electric hypercar. The four-wheeler sprints from 0-97km/h in just 1.79 seconds, and reaches 193km/h in 4.49 seconds. It also decelerates from 100-0km/h in 31 meters and promises a range of 483km, both of which are world records for electric hypercars. Deliveries of the vehicle are now underway.
Why does this story matter?
- Pininfarina has introduced the Battista in Saudi Arabia and the UAE. The company has revealed the car's record-breaking performance figures achieved at the Dubai Autodrome.
- The handcrafted Battista is now the world's fastest-accelerating road-legal vehicle as well as the fastest-braking EV. In the hypercar market, these factors should make it stand out from the rest.
The car has dihedral doors and rear wings
The Pininfarina Battista flaunts a sloping roofline, a sculpted hood, a front splitter, a charging port, and sleek headlamps connected by an LED strip. On the sides, the hypercar is flanked by dihedral doors, body-colored ORVMs, and 21-inch alloy wheels. Sleek LED taillights, an active diffuser, and large rear wings are available on the rear end of the vehicle.
It attains a top speed of 349.2km/h
The Pininfarina Battista packs four electric motors linked to a T-shaped 120kWh battery pack. The setup delivers a combined output of 1,900hp/2,300Nm and allows the vehicle to hit a top speed of 349.2km/h.
The vehicle gets 2 seats and 360-degree-view camera
The Pininfarina Battista has a luxurious tech-forward two-seater cabin with premium upholstery, auto climate control, and a flat-bottom multifunctional steering wheel. It houses a small digital speedometer, a digital driver's display, and an infotainment console. All three of them are angled toward the driver. Multiple airbags, ABS, a 360-degree-view camera, and EBD ensure the safety of the passengers.
