Will the next Pagani be electric?

May 28, 2018, 06:02 PM IST by Omkar Thakur
Will the next Pagani be electric?

- Research on the EV powertrain has already begun

- The powertrain will be sourced from Mercedes-AMG

Pagani, the erstwhile Italian hypercar builder, has completed 25 years since the launch of their first car, the Zonda. Horacio Pagani, the Argentinian who loves fighter planes moved out after years at Lamborghini to build his own car. And Pagani has been one of those few small-time manufacturers who have sustained and become profitable while building some of the fastest cars in the world.

Not one to rest on its laurels, Pagani has already begun exploring the electric options. With almost all the car makers across the globe trying their hands at electric cars, Pagani says it will be difficult to ignore where the world is headed. While it will keep building its internal-combustion engine marvels, the electric powertrains will also be built side-by-side.

Pagani is certain that the company would go full-electric instead of hybrid. The aim is to build a frame that is so light that it becomes a benchmark for EVs and has a powertrain that will better the performance of its current hypercars – Zonda and Huayra. Given that these cars are known for their handling prowess, the Pagani EV will be a handling masterpiece too because Pagani doesn’t believe in the horsepower race. 

Pagani’s deal with Mercedes for powertrains will continue and the EV mill will also be procured from the German car maker who already has most of the technology. Of course, it will be tuned by Pagani engineers who, by then, will be trained to harness performance from this new source of power.
