Pininfarina has announced an all-electric hypercar, due in 2020, that will launch under the new Automobili Pininfarina brand. So far, Pininfarina has released headline performance figures for the potential Rimac C _Two rival, which will be the first in a line of EVs to emerge from the new division.
All manufacturing, engineering and design operations of Pininfarina Automobili will be carried out in Europe, where the new firm will be located. Moreover, parent company Mahindra’s motorsport experience in Formula E will influence the development of the forthcoming hypercar, which promises jet fighter-like performance.
Occupants attempting to match the claimed acceleration benchmarks will endure 3-4G of acceleration force as they launch from 0-100kph in under 2 seconds; before hitting 300kph in sub-12 seconds, outstripping an F16 fighter. However, the hypercar can’t go Mach 1 and will run into a limiter near 402kph.
