All-electric 2022 Pininfarina Battista hypercar boasts unique features & high-tech specs
The all-electric 2022 Pininfarina Battista hypercar is undoubtedly a worthy tribute to Italian automobile designer Battista Farina, thanks to its pleasantly striking high-tech features and specs. Christened after renowned Italian automobile designer, the Pininfarina Battista electric hypercar was officially revealed by Pininfarina at the Monterey Car Week held in California last month.
The 2022 Pininfarina Battista comes equipped with four permanent magnet synchronous electric motors that deliver a peak output of 1,900 horsepower (hp) and 1,741 pound-feet of torque. It enjoys powerful quad-motor configuration as there is one dedicated electric motor for each wheel. Its combined power and torque output makes it the most powerful car ever built in Italy.
When it comes to acceleration, it is really fast, sprinting from zero to 100 km per hour (km/h) in just 1.8 seconds. According to the manufacturer’s claims, it can easily hit the 300 km/h mark from standstill in under a couple of seconds. The claimed top speed of the fully-electric hypercar is 350 km/h. The numbers are enough to boggle the mind.
Equipped with a massive 120-kWh battery pack, the 2022 Pininfarina Battista can cover a distance of up to 500 km on a single full charge.
Like any other available hypercar, the 2022 Pininfarina Battista has a low slung, somewhat curvy and aerodynamic design. It features air scoops in front bonnet, eye-catching front bumper and unique rear fenders. Its uniquely-designed tail lamps, doors and rear view mirrors seem to be aerodynamic. With all those features and specs, the all-electric Pininfarina Battista will compete with rivals like Rimac Nevera and the yet-to-be-launched Lotus Evija.
Its overall structure is made of carbon fiber, and its cabin is driver focused. There is a small, innovative rectangular speedometer that is flanked by massive screens on either side to provide instrument console, infotainment and navigation information.
The Pininfarina Battista is going to be a limited-run model as the Italian design house has decided to produce only 150 units of the hypercar. Out of those limited number of units, five units will be reserved for an ultra-special edition model, called the Battista Anniversario.
After the official unveiling of the 2022 Pininfarina Battista electric hypercar, Automobili Pininfarina has plans to produce and sell five different electric models by the mid of current decade (2025). The entire lineup, including a fully-electric high performance SUV, will be designed for left-hand drive as well as right-hand drive markets.
