Pininfarina has launched a wallbox for buyers of its Battista hypercar. Called Residenza, the home charger has been developed in partnership with Green Motion.
It’s certainly an eye-catching wallbox. The design is inspired by the Battista itself, and features a painted cover to match the colour the owner has chosen for their all-electric Italian hypercar.
The 22kW AC wallbox (7.2kW in North America) is constructed using recycled and organic materials. It can be activated via a dedicated smartphone app, which allows owners to remotely schedule the charging of the car.
It’ll recharge the Battista’s 120kWh battery pack in six hours. Fully charged, the Pininfarina Battista offers a claimed 310 miles of range, depending on the conditions. For charging on the move, Pininfarina has partnered with ChargePoint to provide five years of unlimited public charging at no extra cost.
‘Extreme electrified performance’
Automobili Pininfarina chief product and engineering officer Paolo Dellacha said: “Our clients will love the thrill of Battista’s extreme electrified performance, yet they also need to enjoy living with this advanced technology. For that reason we have ensured there are a comprehensive number of public charging points available to them, made possible through our collaboration with ChargePoint.
“At the same time, a large proportion of the Battista’s charging will be done at home and our exclusive wallbox design provides owners with a bespoke solution, finished to their exact taste.”
The Pininfarina Battista was revealed at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. As our sister site Motoring Research revealed, the hypercar produces 1,900hp and is faster to 60mph than a Formula 1 car. Only 150 will be built, although a Battista Anniversario special edition was unveiled in March. Five will be produced, each one costing a cool £2.3 million.
Pininfarina test driver Nick Heidfeld said: “I’ve never driven anything as powerful as the Battista.”
