Pininfarina may produce Cambiano plug-in hybrid coupe in limited number

Article by Anita Panait, on March 13, 2012

Pininfarina is evaluating whether it will build a limited number of the Cambiano plug-in hybrid coupe concept that it recently launched at the 82nd Geneva Auto Show. Sergio Angori, Pininfarina CEO, told Automotive News Europe on the sidelines of the Geneva auto show that the automaker is looking for companies and private buyers interested in acquiring a high-performance, low-emission luxury model, referring to the Cambiano plug-in hybrid coupe concept. Angori said that if the Pininfarina builds 10 units, each Cambiano would carry a price of around EUR1 million.

Angori, however, said that the price per unit could slide to EUR400,00 if the company increases its production to 70-75 units. The CEO said it would take 24 to 30 months to commence production of the Cambiano, which is named after Pininfarina's home city near Turin.

The Pininfarina Cambiano plug-in hybrid coupe concept is a top of the line model that offers superb performance without harming the environment. The 680-hp concept could reach top speeds of 275kph but only emits 45 grams of Carbon Dioxide per kilometer. 

The company may extend the range to a diesel-powered internal combustion engine rather than the concept’s diesel-fuelled turbine. Pininfarina has each wheel of the plug-in hybrid coupe concept installed with an electric motor that offers 60kW, with peaks of 150kW for short periods.

The Cambiano’s battery capacity limits the maximum output of the engine to just 500kW or 680 hp, allowing the car to accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in just 4.2 seconds. The Cambiano plug-in hybrid coupe concept has a range of 800 km, which includes 205 in full electric mode.
