The Pininfarina Battista, an electric hypercar, completed its first high-speed test at the Nardo test track in Italy, and will reach 217 mph according to the automaker. The Battista is largely based off another EV hypercar, the Rimac Concept_2, and has a 4-motor torque vectoring system, regenerative braking from its Brembo CCMR carbon-ceramic brakes, and five driving modes. These driving modes include the following: Calma, Pura, Energica, Furiosa, and Carattere.
It's exterior is adorned by 20-inch Prezioso wheels or staggered 20 and 21-inch Impulso wheels, which are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2R or Pirelli P Zero tires. The EV also has a feature that creates an "external soundscape" while traveling at low speeds. Pininfarina promises an ultra-quick 0-62 mph of less than 2 seconds, with a sprint to 186 mph in under 12 seconds. For reference, a Porsche 911 Carrera does 60 mph in 4.0 seconds. As if you couldn't already tell, the Battista is no slouch.
The electric hypercar is scheduled to reach customers in 2021, and will have 150 units built.
