The Pininfarina Battista has established a new speed record by outperforming the Nevera.

The Pininfarina Battista has earned the title of the fastest-accelerating production car in the quarter-mile.

Eclipsing the previous record set by the Rimac Nevera by 0.03 seconds, the Battista completed the quarter-mile in 8.55 seconds. Additionally, it reached the half-mile mark in 13.38 seconds and achieved a top speed of 222 mph.

This extraordinary feat took place at the NATRAX high-speed test track in India. Earlier this month, the electric hypercar was also exhibited at the Hyderabad E-Prix.

Owned by India’s Mahindra & Mahindra, Pininfarina unveiled its inaugural electric hypercar at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. The vehicle is equipped with four electric motors generating 1874 hp and 1694 lb-ft of torque. The company asserts that it can accelerate from 0-62 mph in under 2 seconds and has a battery capacity of 120 kWh, providing a range of 311 miles.

The Battista competes fiercely with the Rimac Nevera and Lotus Evija. The former currently holds the record for the fastest production EV at 256 mph and boasts four electric motors producing 1914 horsepower and 1696 lb-ft of torque. On the other hand, the Evija is equipped with four electric motors generating 1973 hp and 1254 lb-ft of torque.
