DESIGN PRINCIPLES

“Soprattutto deve essere bella” is the mantra of Battista “Pinin” Farina: purity of lines, timeless design, and harmony in forms and functions to create love at first sight.

Pininfarina is a synonym of exquisite design, timeless beauty, and innovation. PURA is our design philosophy: it’s a bond between essence and form, one must reflect the other in the clearest and exquisite way. Pure form, pure lines, pure performance.

Battista perfectly represents the bridge from the past to the future. Its pure lines are inspired by iconic Pininfarina-designed cars like the Cisitalia 202 or the Ferrari Modulo and interpreted in a new and innovative way where form and function blend perfectly together without compromises.

Battista represents a new pinnacle of desirability for electric cars and positions itself as the hypercar of the future inspired by the legendary past. 

Battista is the purest expression of Pininfarina´s philosophy and the pioneer of the EV movement among luxury carmakers.
