The world's fastest e-car Battista will be launched by India's leading automobile company Mahindra and Mahindra in the upcoming 89th edition of the Geneva Motor Show that will kickstart from Thursday. Battista has believed to race ahead of the Formula -1 race car in terms of accelerating to 62 miles per hour in less than two seconds. The electric hypercar can go 0-300 kilometres per hour in less than 12 seconds and cover a range of nearly 450 kilometres with zero emissions.

Although Battista has been described as a futuristic electric performance-driven car, its design will bear resemblance to vintage cars dating back to 1920s and some likening to the premium Ferraris according to Automobili Pininfarina, a Europe based luxury electric car company acquired by India's Mahindra group.

Automobil Pinninfarina described Battista as a unique automotive icon that will rewrite history.

It will be a game-changer in the sports car category delivering a performance that "is unachievable today in any sports car category having internal combustion engine technology," Automobili Pininfarina CEO Michael Perschk said, according to AutoCar.

World's fastest e-car's commercial launch

Battista will be available commercially worldwide by 2020 and would mostly cater to markets in North America, Europe, Asia and Middle-East.

At the outset, 150 Battistas would be manufactured in Italy and exported to the rest of the countries. The manufacturers have said that the customer services will be provided through luxury car retail specialists from London, Tokyo and Los Angeles. Battista makers have said that the hypercar will be developed on a unique model that will combine the design strength of Automobil Pinninfarina and the electric car expertise of India's Mahindra.

Various French and Italian auto brands such as Bugatti, Ferrari and Lamborghini would showcase their new additions to an ever-increasing global market of luxury cars. The limited edition cars from heritage brands have been an all-time favourite of those who wish to have the next big hot wheels in the town.
