Pininfarina lays out retail groundwork to sell Battista electric hypercar

By CARSIFU | 8 February 2019

GENEVA: Ahead of Automobili Pininfarina’s global reveal of its revolutionary Battista electric hypercar at the Geneva Motor Show, the company has announced details of the first phase of retail specialists appointed in its new global network.

When the world’s first pure Pininfarina road car comes to market in 2020, these partnerships will be defined and managed by Automobili Pininfarina’s new Munich-based sales team.

The Battista, which takes its name from Pininfarina SpA’s founder Battista ‘Pinin’ Farina, will be a ground-breaking hypercar offering unrivalled performance combined with ultra-luxury.

Thanks to its carbon fibre construction and electric motors, a combined output of 1,900hp and 2,300Nm of torque is targeted, and it is expected to accelerate from rest to 100 km/h in less than two seconds and on to 300 km/h in less than 12 seconds, all with a potential zero emissions range of more than 450km.

Automobili Pininfarina has also announced that in Asia, luxury retail specialists will be located in Hong Kong and Singapore, whilst Middle East partners are confirmed in Dubai and Riyadh.

The Battista is planned to come to market in 2020 but with no more than 150 set to be produced – 50 for North America, 50 for Europe and 50 for the Middle East and Asia markets – potential customers are invited
