At the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, the world was finally introduced to the first product from Automobili Pininfarina - the Battista. It's a 1900hp all-electric hypercar that can do 0-100kph in under 2 seconds, but is also capable of a 450km range. And of course, none of this would have been possible without funding Mahindra, which owns the brand. Hormazd Sorabjee gives you an in-depth look at this astonishing hypercar.

      It's designed in Croatia and Italy, and an all European car.
      Mahindra own Pinninfarina and also funded this project, which is great, but, in the end, it's a Pinninfarina car, and not a Mahindra car.

      Tata & Mahindra have ZERO credibility in EVs. Both of them retrofit ICE cars with electric engines. Tata & Mahindra were unable to supply EESL with just 5,000 of their retrofitted cars that too in spite of quoting at a premium... forget about building it from scratch. These two companies just dont want to sell EVs. Tata retired the Nano and Mahindra was just about to retire the E2O citing low sales before Nitin Gadkari pressured them to invest more in EV.

      I don't know much about automobile but one question which always arise in my head is that why our indian companies not making normal sedan electric cars? It will help a lot to control the pollution i guess.
