Last year, the Automobili Pininfarina announced that it has partnered with the world’s largest EV charging network ChargePoint for its pure-electric supercar Battista. The company has announced a Residenza home charger, a bespoke wall box designed by Pininfarina SpA. This EV charger is a wall box design and is inspired by the Battista, and is constructed using recycled and organic materials.
It has also partnered with Naim Audio, an in-car sound system provider for its all-electric supercar Battista. The partnership has been made as the company is preparing a small fleet of prototypes of the hypercar for the final stage of a rigorous test programme.
