B0 was presented by the new Pininfarina president Paolo and his French partner for the production of polymer-ion batteries for B0 - Vintsen Bolore.

"You see production car, rather than show car. It is up to 90% in line with the production model, which will start in about a year to come off the conveyor. I did not design the car, which will be one of the foundations for the future of our company, all work was done by Andrea" - anxiously said Paolo, referring to tragically deceased brother.

Bolore, in turn, described the alliance with Pininfarina as the fruit of love and wisdom: "Love - when we talk about the most outstanding world designer and wisdom - is that we have developed the first version of the electric car."

Pininfarina B0 is a 4-person 4-door compact electric car, with a maximum speed (electronically limited) of 130 km / h. Batteries last for up to 250 km and located at the bottom of the platform between the two axles, lowering the center of gravity machine. Roof and hood have solar cells that will supply energy to electrical equipment.

Next week, car will be presented to the French president Nicolas Sarkozy, who is a personal friend of Bolore. Sales of new models will begin in mid-2009. Planned output is 10 thousand units per year.
