Pininfarina Nido EV Concept

During the celebrations for its 80th Anniversary, Pininfarina has unveiled the Nido EV Concept.
The Nido EV Concept is based on the 2004 Nido Concept and features a platform with a hybrid powertrain and a modular chassis that can be easily adapted to four different layouts, such as a compact pickup and a mini-van with both 2 and 2+2 seating layout and pure-electric or hybrid drivetrain.
The prototype adopts a tubular steel frame, while the final version will have an aluminium space frame.
The Nido EV is powered by a rear-mounted permanent magnet motor coupled with a Zebra Z5 Ni-NaCl battery, which guarantees a range of 140 km, a top speed of 120 km/h (limited electronically), and a 0-60 km/h acceleration in 6.7 seconds.
Additional information can be found in the official press release, reported below.
