Pininfarina Is Interested in Speed and Comfort, Not Beating Bugatti’s Lap Times

The Pininfarina Battista will be incredibly fast, but also as comfortable as a grand tourer

Electric cars are no longer just about commuting without burning oil and emitting CO2. Technology has advanced so much in recent years that electric cars can now be as quick or even quicker that gasoline-powered supercars. We already have the Lotus Evija and NIO EP9 to look at for proper examples, but more high-tech and high-powered EVs are in the making.

One of them comes from Pininfarina. It’s called the Battista, we’ve seen it in prototype form in 2019, and the Italian firm is currently testing it at the Nardo track. The loop is mostly famous for top speed testing, particularly by Bugatti, but Pininfarina says they’re not looking to set new records.

Video: Donut Media Takes a Big Bite Out of the Pininfarina Battista

Profiling an all-electric superstar

I don’t know if you guys have been paying attention, but the top shelf of the supercar world is simply insane right now.

Pininfarina’s Upcoming Electric SUV Will Just Be a Coachbuilt Rivian SUV

There’s a lofty niche for fast SUVs and even Pininfarina wants onboard

Pininfarina, the company that once acted as Ferrari’s favorite coachbuilder, will soon be in the business of making cars of its own. A supercar is planned, named PF0, as well as three SUVs. The fastest of the lot, known as PF1, will use the same platform as the Rivian R1S SUV and will target Lamborghini’s Urus in terms of performance.

It’s been almost 90 years since Battista Farina funded the Pinin Farina coachbuilding company and over half a century since the company’s name was changed to Pininfarina. Many cars have featured Pininfarina bodies over the years, beyond the countless Prancing Horses, and, now, a fleet of SUVs is in the oven beside the company’s own supercar.

This is what an SUV concept should look like

The Pininfarina K350 concept finally broke cover at the 2018 Beijing Auto Show.
