Pininfarina Battista has 1,900 hp, but can it beat the NIO EP9 around the ring?


Pininfarina’s wants to contribute to the battle against pollution and true enough since their new all-electric Pininfarina Battista doesn’t emit any local emissions on the move. But underneath all the “Save the Earth” fluff in the press release is a small footnote that the Battista comes with 1,900 hp and 2,300 Nm.

First deliveries are due in late 2020 and only 150 units of this all-electric hypercar will be made. With 1,9000 hp at its disposal, the Battista is capable of a 0 to 100 km/h sprint time of under 2 seconds and is able to theoretically break the 402 km/h mark. Mind-boggling figures, to say the least, perhaps Pininfarina should consider snatching the title of “King of the Ring” from the NIO EP9.

The Battista also comes with a very reasonable cruising range of over 483 km on a single charge, the company said can go from London to Paris without having to be plugged into a power source.

CEO of Automobili Pininfarina, Michael Perschke said: “The Battista is a truly beautiful, guilt-free hypercar – the first EV to really fall in love with – because electricity enables us to develop it with zero emissions and as the most powerful car that will have ever been designed and built in Italy.”
