First Pininfarina Battista electric supercar hits the road in the US

The Automobili Pininfarina Battista has made its dynamic debut in the US, taking to the roads of California in the run up to Monterey Car Week.

The electric hypercar is heading Stateside in production form for the first time, with the Italian design house saying it will give potential clients their first opportunity to experience the car.

This particular example of the Battista has exposed carbon-fibre bodywork, showing the details of the lightweight material. The interior is finished in sustainable black leather and blue Alcantara upholstery.

It has four electric motors, one on each wheel, which combine to make 1,873bhp and 2,300Nm of torque. Pininfarina says it can go from 0-60mph in under two seconds and will have an electric range of 310 miles.

Per Svantesson, CEO of Automobili Pininfarina, said: “The premiere of the first production-specification Battista in the US marks the beginning of another significant chapter in the Automobili Pininfarina story.

“We are excited to showcase the beautiful and sustainable future of luxury to our clients, while celebrating more than 90 years of Pininfarina design heritage during Monterey Car Week.

“We look forward to our clients in the US experiencing the immense dynamic performance and personalised luxury of Battista for the first time.”

Those in attendance will also be the first to hear the car’s unique sound. Pininfarina says the car emits a sound with a core frequency of 54Hz, which is a multiple of 432Hz. This frequency is said to be ‘mathematically consistent with the universe’, providing a pure sound that’s easier on the ears.

The frequency will rise in multiples of 54Hz with new sound layers added in line with the increasing speed of the vehicle.
