Pininfarina Displays Sintesi Concept At 2008 Geneva Auto Show

Sintesi ConceptPininfarina displayed its new concept – the Sintesi – at the 2008 Geneva Auto Show. It was one of the few concept cars that really grabbed a hold of our attention and begged us to take a closer look. The Sintesi was designed to be one of the first fuel-cell plug-in hybrids and if all goes well it will be finished with production in 2010 and will be distributed in Japan, Europe, and the U.S.

The Sintesi concept has very smooth and rounded off edges giving it the appeal and perfect Italian design and look of a true sports car. The look of the car gives you the impression that it can only seat two and that it would have no back seat. However, we have it on good authority that the car can seat up to four people comfortably and has been built with four doors.

The body of the car has been designed and built around the mechanicals so as to allow the drivetrain to be shaped around the passengers. This specific design is called ‘liquid packaging’ and will free the car from any of the usual shapes and will also help to lower the center of gravity and to improve upon the weight distribution.

Pininfarina has stated that the Sintesi has the ability to have a top speed of 80 mph and can accelerate in 4.8 seconds to 31 mph. In the city the car can drive around 150 miles with only having to recharge completely for five hours. This means that if you need to drive only 15 miles you will only have to recharge for five minutes.
