Battista, que belezza
After taking over the Italian design office, Mahindra&Mahindra founded Automobili Pininfarina. And their first masterstroke is called Battista, in homage to the founder. The superlatives are hard to find: 1,900 fully electric horses, a breathtaking line and an exclusive recharging station, but also available to all buyers who wouldn't have to pay 2 million for one of the 145 planned cars, or 2.5 million for one of the 5 "anniversario" models! The charging station, of course designed by Pininfarina, was made by the Swiss manufacturer Green Motion, a pioneer in the field.
A piece of Switzerland
When you want to achieve excellence, you surround yourself with the best. This is what prompted Pininfarina to contact Green Motion, the world technological leader in charging stations for electric vehicles. A challenge for the Vaud- based company, which had to imagine and create new elements in order to successfully install them in a charging station that redefines aesthetic standards and user experience in the residential sector. But not only that. The Residenza kiosk, presented at the CES in Las Vegas in early 2020, is made of recycled organic elements, making it unique in the world. CEO of Green Motion, François Randin, is delighted with this prestigious collabo- ration: "We are proud of this partnership with Pininfarina, which illustrates the al- liance between the timeless beauty of Italian design and Swiss know-how in advanced engineering. This combination perfectly symbolizes a Europe that wins through innovation and cross-border collaboration".
