The Italian design giant Pininfarina is reportedly considering a limited run production for its Geneva concept, the Cambiano, a car that’s named after the city in which the company’s headquarters are located. The Cambiano is a plug-in hybrid car with amazing performance figures and four seats. It will be pretty expensive though.
Actually, the final price depends directly on the number of cars they are going to make. If they make 10 for example, each unit will cost around 1 million Euro. If they make 70, then they can sell each for something like 400,000 euro, still a hefty price. It would also take 24 to 30 months to start production of the Cambiano.
The production version would have a diesel range-extender engine to charge the batteries that power each of the four electric motors. The four motors, which are produced by Magneti Marelli, are mounted on the front and rear frames and each delivers a continuous supply of 60 kW with peaks of 150 kW for a total of 600 kW maximum power output, with torque of 640 Nm.
That means the Cambiano makes 680 hp with CO2 emissions of just 45 grams per kilometer. It is also capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 in 4.2 sec, and reaching top speed to 250 km/h (limited).
That’s fantastic performance, but it is still hard to justify that price tag. You can get a Fisker Karma for much less than that. The Karma also looks a helluva lot better.
