Geneva Motor Show 2018: Pininfarina debuts the luxury HK GT EV

Geneva Motor Show 2018: Pininfarina debuts the luxury HK GT EV

Pininfarina, the fabled Italian designer, has showcased a brand new concept at the Geneva Motor Show this year and it is called the HK GT. Built in collaboration with the Hong Kong based Hybrid Kinetic group, the gull-winged luxury sedan is an electric car offered with three range extender options.

Pininfarina has pulled all stops while designing the HK GT. The vertically slatted 3D-mesh grille hides the LED headlamps between the far slats while the multiple surfaces on the fascia twist and turn to make the front bumper. The curves continue throughout and in Pininfarina’s words, the voluptuous lines design style conveys sensuality, power and elegance. And then there are those huge gull-wing doors that grab all the attention.

The HK GT electric car is driven by four motors combining together an output of 1072bhp and has a range of 100miles from the 38kWh battery pack. It comes with three range extender options – a micro-turbine, fuel-cell system or a high efficiency IC engine. The extenders are expected to boost the range to as far as 1000kms.

Pininfarina also said that this car will make it to the Asian markets which makes reminds us of the recent Michael Perschke-Mahindra-Pininfarina rumours. On the other hand, Pininfarina has also announced a limited production run of its H2 Speed concept, the car that won the prestigious Concept Car of the year at Geneva last year. With just 12 of them to be built, the track-only H2 Speed will get a 653bhp power output and a 0-100kmph timing of 3.4 seconds.
