Pininfarina Battista is an Electric Monster With 1,874 Horsepower

Pininfarina debuts its Battista electric supercar at the Geneva Motor Show.


The Geneva Motor Show is home to both wacky concepts and spectacular performance cars. The new Pininfarina Battista electric vehicle is a bit of both. Using a 120-kWh battery pack supplied by Rimac, the Battista promises a mind-blowing 1,874 horsepower.

That’s enough to rocket the EV to 100 km/h in less than 2.0 seconds. In other words, this thing is faster than a Tesla Model S P100D, a Tesla Roadster, and a Formula 1 car. A staggering 1,694 pound-feet of torque is sent to the ground as soon as you touch the accelerator.

A single electric motor located in each wheel powers the Pininfarina Battista. The 120-kWh battery can propel the motors for 450 kilometers.

Inside, a production-worthy cockpit puts three screens of information directly in front of the driver. The design sketches of the interior show two different colors for the seats, something we haven’t seen in a very long time.

There’s very little around the passenger except a handle to hold tight. We’re thinking that may be one of the Battista’s most useful features given how fast this thing can go.

Want more performance specs? Sure thing. The Battista reaches 300 km/h in just 12 seconds on route to a top speed of 350 km/h.

No official pricing has been announced and if the Battista does get built, only 150 units will be made. Production would start next year.

The Pininfarina name is familiar to any automotive enthusiast, but the Battista is actually the nameplate’s first vehicle. It’s also the most powerful car ever to come from Italy.
