Automobili Pininfarina has just revealed its newest Battista hypercar and the company’s 'Pura Vision' future plans for luxury electric cars at VIP events during Monterey Car Week.
The Battista hypercar, which will cost $2 million, has been touted as the "world's first electric hypercar" with speeds as high as 250 mph.
The future of EVs?
Automobili Pininfarina CEO Michael Perschke recently hosted a series of invite-only events at the House of Automobili Pininfarina.
At these events, Perschke unveiled the Battista electric car - with an enhanced front design. He also revealed the company's strategy and showed off the 'Pura Vision' design model.
In a press statement, design director Luca Borgogno recently said, "It was a dream to present the latest version of Battista and the PURA Vision design model here in Pebble Beach. Battista is the hypercar that proves it is possible to design a beautiful high-performance EV and it has won the hearts of our clients in North America."
“PURA Vision is absolutely an insight into our future; a luxury vehicle like no other, designed to deliver thrilling EV performance,” he continued.
