Studio Pininfarina no longer focuses only on design, it has published the performance data of its Battista electric hypersport. On display at the Dubai Autodrome in the United Arab Emirates, where the car made its dynamic debut in the Middle East, the electric car celebrated a series of world records recently achieved in the final round of homologation.

The battista’s performance data was recorded and verified in Nardò, Italy, as part of the vehicle’s global test and development program earlier this year. Acceleration from zero to 96 km/h is a matter of 1.79 seconds. It accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 1.86 seconds, from zero to 193 km/h in 4.49 seconds and to 200 km/h in just 4.79 seconds. The top speed is 350 km/h.

Those numbers make it the fastest accelerating road-legal vehicle, at least until Rimac decides to upgrade the Nevera’s performance specs.

The fastest electric car is the Croatian Rimac

“The perfectly optimized weight distribution and low center of gravity are the basis of this result,” said Chief Engineer Paolo Dellacha.

The car has four electric motors that produce a combined output of 1,417 kW, 1,900 horsepower, and a torque of 2,300 Newton meters. Croatia’s Rimac supplies a 120kWh battery, T-shaped and mounted low for better weight management.

Each car is handcrafted in Italy and takes a total of approximately 1,250 hours to complete. Production is planned for 150 cars with prices starting at 2.2 million euros, equivalent to 53.5 million crowns.

Production started in July and the first deliveries to customers are now underway. We first saw the car in 2018 during the motor show in Monterey, California.
