The burden distribution of the T-shaped 120 kWh battery pack is configured to optimise the Battista’s dynamic potential, with 4 motors independently distributing torque and energy to every wheel, delivering all the advantages of recent torque vectoring. Cooling circuits and methods are primarily based on 5 radiators.
The Battista is a usually elegant Pininfarina design. Famend for with the ability to outline their automobiles in simply two traces, the Battista is not any totally different, presenting a full carbon physique that’s curvaceous and sculptural with a cabin encased inside sweeping glass.
