After 88 years of working in the coacbuilder and automotive design, Pininfarina seemed to want to sink deeper into the world's automotive by becoming a car manufacturer. 

However, not wanting to follow in the other manufacturers footsteps who are still playing in the conventional engines realm, they chose to dissolve into the "nowadays" breakthrough movement by releasing the charming electric hypercar concept. Not only has a charming design, their hypercar is said to have the performance to rival the Bugatti Chiron!

What is their capital? As quoted of Autoblog, that the Pininfarina received an initial investment of $100 million (around £71.6m) from Mahindra, an Indian multinational automotive company. The company also entered the automotive industry by marketing the Mahindra branded vehicles.

These project is known as the Montana Project, and to be referred as the Pininfarina targets to make four cars or more in next five years. The main model codenamed PF-Zero, followed by three SUV units: the PF-One (the biggest) will be a rival to Lamborghini Urus, the other two will become rivals for Porsche Cayenne and Macan.

Another interesting news, all of these cars will use a modular platform that was developed together with Rimac, a Croatian electric supercar maker, and the Mahindra Racing Formula E. The collaboration of the three also led to the use of super-performing electric motors.
