Cambiano/Munich – The world’s first pure-electric hyper GT, the Battista, has begun production at a dedicated new Atelier space in Cambiano, Italy. Located in the Piemonte region of Italy, this milestone represents an exciting chapter in the development story of the new Italian luxury carmaker Automobili Pininfarina.

Battista is an award-winning car that is hand-crafted by experienced artisans. Only 150 of these cars will be made, so owners can look forward to owning a unique and exclusive vehicle. They will also have access to world-class customer service through the Automobili Pininfarina global retailer network and its team of Client Relations specialists.

Per Svantesson, Automobili Pininfarina CEO, said: “I am proud to lead the team responsible for bringing the award-winning Battista to life as a production car. Since launching Automobili Pininfarina in Rome in 2018, we have developed a team of 118 experts, drawn from 20 nations worldwide. This diverse ‘family’ is now established in both our Munich Headquarters and in our northern Italy home where a growing team of designers, engineers and vehicle development specialists envision ground-breaking vehicles of the future.

“This great family has overcome significant challenges in recent years by maintaining a laser focus on delighting Battista owners. The delivery of Battista this year marks a leap in the advancement of automotive design and technology, and I am sure owning one will be rewarding and remarkable in equal measure.”

Deliveries to customers worldwide of Battista will commence this summer. The pure-electric hyper GT is specified in either ‘Pura’ body style or featuring the ‘Furiosa’ body design package. Five examples of the Battista Anniversario will be created as part of the total 150-unit production limit, with this unique specification vehicle celebrating the lifetime achievements of design icon Battista ‘Pinin’ Farina. All five pieces are already sold.
