Rimac to supply EV technology to Automobili Pininfarina
Automobili Pininfarina announced extensive collaboration with Rimac as a lead technical partner on their first electric hypercar, codenamed PF0.
Munich, 28 Sep – Automobili Pininfarina announces €80m EV technology supply contract with Rimac.
The contract marks a significant step for both parties as Automobili Pininfarina secures an innovative, successful and highly proficient technical partner, whilst Rimac partners with an iconic brand and secures their first full-system series production automotive supply contract. Rimac is to provide battery and drivetrain expertise, software and hardware, in a contract worth up to €80mil, to Automobili Pininfarina in the development of their electric hypercar, the PF0.
With the 2018 launch of Rimac’s next generation, the C_Two, a hypercar at the pinnacle of technology, Rimac is recognized as a small-volume high-performance vehicle manufacturer. However, their extensive know-how in high-performance electric vehicle development, positions them as a key technology supplier to many industry partners including Porsche, Aston Martin, Koenigsegg, Renault, CUPRA, and now, Automobili Pininfarina.
Automobili Pininfarina, owned by the Mahindra Group, was launched in April 2018 with the mission to produce luxury electric hypercars. The first Pininfarina-branded stand-alone car – codename PF0 – will be revealed in 2019.
