Pininfarina has announced the introduction of its fully-electric hypercar, Pininfarina Battista, in the Middle East market. Expected to be priced around $2 million ( ₹ 13.95 crore approx.), the Italian marque's zero-emission electric hypercar was launched in Dubai, at specialist luxury car retailer Adamas Motors showroom.
The new Battista electric hypercar is slated to enter production in the second half of 2020 at Pininfarina's Cambiano facility in Italy. Initially, Pininfarina will be producing a maximum of 150 units, out of which only 50 are anticipated to be available to cover the Middle East and Asia markets, so the company expects the demands to be exceptionally high.
Design Director, Automobili Pininfarina talking about the Luca Borgogno. He said, "We are proud to be in Dubai for the Battista's Middle East debut. Just a few weeks after it was launched at the Geneva International Motor Show, where it received an amazing reception, we have arrived in one of the world's most discerning countries for supercars and luxury cars. The Battista's classic hypercar proportions combined with cutting-edge technology that delivers 1,900 hp and zero emissions will be a new experience for its owners in the UAE, and we believe will make them fall in love with ultra-high-performance electric vehicles."
The company claims that the Battista electric hypercar is faster than a current Formula 1 race car. While 0-100 kmph is achieved in under two seconds, 0-300 kmph takes less than 12 seconds and it can reach a top speed of 350 kmph. As for the range, the company claims that the Battista has a potential zero-emissions range of up to 450 kilometres.
