Battista EV goes 0-60 mph in 1.79 seconds, sets record

The Automobili Pininfarina Battista is the quickest production car in the world by going from 0-60 mph in 1.79 seconds. The previous record was held by the Koenigsegg Gemera with a 1.9-second 0-60 mph jaunt, but the pure-electric Battista wasn’t done with record-setting performance. At the Dubai Autodrome in the United Arab Emirates, the Battista set three more production-car acceleration records:

0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 1.86s

0-120 mph in 4.49s

0-200 km/h (124 mph) in 4.75s

To let the automotive world that it’s not just a straight-line demon, the Battista set an EV world record by braking from 100-0 km/h in 31 meters, which translates to 62 mph in 101.8 feet to those with American sensibilities.

“Perfectly optimized weight distribution and low centre of gravity are at the heart of this result,” Paolo Dellacha, Automobili Pininfarina Chief Product and Engineering Officer says. “The combination of bespoke chassis and suspension tuning, tyres proven over many thousands of test miles and four-motor torque vectoring delivering unprecedented power enables Battista to be the fastest accelerating road-legal car in the world.”
