Here Pininfarina Battista sets five world records

The Pininfarina Battista’s 1,900 horsepower allows it to do 0-100 km/h in 1.86 seconds.

Then it can also go from 100 km/h to a standstill in 31 meters.

These are two of five world records that the electric car has now achieved at the same time.

A lot of world records are being set for electric cars right now.

Last week, the Rimac Nevera broke the record as the world’s fastest electric car, with a top speed of 412 km/h.

Around the same time, the Lucid Motors electric car set the world record for the world’s fastest acceleration in a production car when it managed 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 1.89 seconds.

But now the latter record has already been broken, along with several others.

0-100 km/h in 1.86 seconds

Super sports car maker Pininfarina has posted a video (seen in the video player above) where the Pininfarina Battista does 0-60 mph in 1.79 seconds, a tenth faster than Lucid Motors. To make it a little more tangible for us Swedes, 0-100 km/h is done in 1.86 seconds, which also counts as a new record.

Also the records for 0-120 mph and 0-200 km/h now belong to Pininfarina Battista as they were completed in 4.49 seconds and 4.75 seconds respectively.

Fifth record: 100-0 km/h

But that’s not all.

In addition to the aforementioned acceleration record, the Battista is also the fastest to stop. 100-0 km/h is accomplished in 31 meters, which is also a new world record for series-produced electric cars.

In the Battista, we have achieved performance beyond our original, extreme goals, says Paolo Dellacha, Head of Production at Automobili Pininfarina.

Costs over 24 million

Pininfarina Battista is inside with technology that has been developed by Rimac Automobili, i.e. the creators of the Rimac Nevera. The car’s electric motor delivers 1,900 horsepower and a torque of 2,340 Nm.

And yes, as you’ve probably guessed, it’s not an entirely cheap story. The customers who have received the first deliveries have paid around 2.2 million euros (24.1 million kroner) for their copies.
