Switzerland: Luxury electric vehicles brand Automobili Pininfarina, a part of the Mahindra Group, recently unveiled its luxury electric vehicle Battista here which is touted to be faster than a current Formula 1 race car in its 0-100 km/h sub-two second sprint.

The Battista will be the most powerful car ever designed and built in Italy when it will be launched in 2020. It has the potential to accelerate to 62 mph in less than two seconds, faster than a Formula 1 car, and break the 250 mph top speed barrier all with a potential zero emissions range of over 300 miles, the company said.

Customer service will be delivered through some of the world’s best luxury car retail specialists, from Los Angeles to London to Tokyo, it added.
