2012 Geneva: Pininfarina Cambiano Concept grabs our attention

Pininfarina has just released its Cambiano concept at the Geneva Motor Show, full of its signature elements and unconventional design. Heavily inspired by founder Pinin Farina’s own 1957 Florida II creation, the model comes as a sports sedan created with a traditional approach.

The exterior design features a grille with integrated LED lighting, wide wheel arches, and strong, simple lines.

On the inside, a video-art projection created by Spanish artist Javier Fernandez was added, which can project onto the roof of the car. Interactive controls that tilt toward the driver, leather upholstery, a recycled wood floor, and a touch panel for controls are also included.

As an electric model, the high-performance Cambiano is also eco-friendly, with low emissions. Four electric motors power the model, providing 60 kW continuously, with a 600 kW maximum output. In addition, an Auxillary Power Unit charges the batteries and can supply power straight to the four motors, and a Battery Management System helps add range.

The Camiano boasts a sport mode that allows for a 0-62mph time of 4.2 seconds, a rally mode for tougher terrain and a drifting mode that modifies the limited slip differentials.
