The launch of a new luxury electric hypercar by Automobili Pininfarina gathered pace in New York today, with the reveal of three exciting new images presenting design intent for the new PF0 hypercar. The Indian Mahindra Group intends to produce luxury electric vehicles from 2020 onwards with its brand Automobili Pininfarina. The emission-free luxury Hypercar PFO is to be built in very small quantities. Support comes from Mahindra Racing. The new racer has ambition to accelerate to 62 mph in less than two seconds, break the 250 mph top speed barrier, and provide a potential zero emissions range of over 300 miles.
Luca Borgogno, Automobili Design Director said: “Pininfarina has an unprecedented heritage of delivering cars that are both beautiful to look at and technically innovative. Creating this combination in the first Pininfarina-branded road car is a dream come true.
“The design of PF0 will espouse purity, beauty and innovation. Working closely with Pininfarina SpA we have created three new images that give prospective owners an exciting preview of the design features we will introduce on this incredible hypercar.”
As a special guest of Mahindra Racing at this weekend’s Formula E street race, Automobili Pininfarina CEO Michael Perschke also announced plans to bring on board ex-Formula 1 racing driver Nick Heidfeld. Heidfeld will be an integral member of the team developing the PF0 vehicle dynamics programme from the beginning of 2019, prior to the all-electric hypercar’s on-sale date of late-2020.
