PININFARINA TO LAUNCH ELECTRIC HYPERCAR
Automobili Pininfarina is the world’s newest car brand that plans to develop, and produce, a range of extraordinarily luxurious and high-performance EVs designed by legendary Italian styling house, Pininfarina SpA.
Comfortably nestled in the deep pockets of parent company Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd, the world’s newest electric car company will produce the first solely Pininfarinabranded cars from 2020.
The first of which will be a low volume ultraluxury electric hypercar that is codenamed ‘PF0’. It will then be followed by a range of low-volume all-electric cars that include luxury SUVs that are sold and serviced through a network of experienced luxury car retailers.
And if Pininfarina can build it as they dream it, the PF0 will offer performance figures similar to that of the Tesla Roadster and the Rimac C Two with a sub-two-second zero to 100 km/h times and a top speed of over 400 km/h. According to Pininfarina, it also aims to squeeze a range of over 500 kilometres from the electric vehicles. These challenging performance targets are supported by the race-winning experience gained from Mahindra Racing’s Formula E experience, as well as early partnership discussions with some of the world’s leading electric technology and software innovators.
The PF0 concept is scheduled for private client viewings during Monterey Car Week in August.
