During a press statement, Luca Borgogno, who is a design director, said, ‘It was a dream to present the latest version of Battista and the PURA Vision design model here in Pebble Beach. Battista is the hypercar that proves it is possible to design a beautiful, high-performance EV, and it has won the hearts of our clients in North America. PURA Vision is absolutely an insight into our future; a luxury vehicle like no other, designed to deliver thrilling EV performance.’

Automobili Pininfarina also showcased its cars including the Battista at Monterey Car Week. The Battista hypercar by the company has zero-emission thrusts.
