If you buy the Pininfarina Battista, you'll get 5 years of free electricity!

    Now that is what I call good marketing!

    Pininfarina is commonly known as the company responsible for designing some of the most beautiful cars ever made for companies such as Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, BMW and Maserati. Now they have decided to expand their empire by venturing into the dimension of hypercars with their newest product: the Battista.

    The Battista costs £2 million, and if you have the sanity and the bank account to spend that much money on a hypercar, you will get access to 115,000 ChargePoint charging stations across US and Europe in order to power your monstrous 1900bhp engine.

    The best part about this scheme is that charging the Battista will be pretty quick in comparison to other electric cars, as it can summersault from 20% to 80% in around 25 minutes, which means that it's safe enough for Jezza to buy and not go insane.

    The news do get slightly underwhelming however when we get to the wall box that you can put up at your house, which is not free and will take about 6 hours to get the car fully charged and able to accomplish its full 310-mile range.

    So overall, if you are a billionaire who feels that an SF90 Stradale is not enough to satisfy your inner Greta Thunberg, then feel free to be set back by £2 million by spending it on this car. Although I must admit, it does look astounding.

    • In the UK electricity costs about £0.16/kWh.

      If this £2m car uses 0.75 kWh/mile, and it does average annual mile of 8,000 miles.

      They are giving away, over 5 years, the equivalent of £4,800.

      WOW, that is big of them.

    • Is it just me or has Pininfarina run out of ideas? This looks just like the Ferrari SF90 save for a few details. The proportions are the same, chances are the platform is the same too.

    • Holy cow, that is quite a beautiful design. Not like a Ferrari California beautiful but beautiful nonetheless.

    • I should bl**dy hope so! 5 years worth of electric amounts to s*d all at a £2million price point. I'd want tyres, servicing, valeting and dancing girls thrown in as well! I mean... electric cars aren't complicated. Batteries are 'off the shelf' and not that costly any more. Everything else is simple stuff, so what you're buying is bragging rights, nothing more. In the old days, it was really, really difficult to extract monster performance, but now it isn't. Just cool the motor and dump electric through it until it melts = performance. Big deal.
