Pininfarina Unveils Sintesi
Concept Car at Geneva Motor Show
GENEVA - Pininfarina unveiled its
innovative concept car, the Sintesi, featuring Nuvera's
Quadrivium(TM) drive, at the Geneva Motor Show in Geneva,
The Sintesi is powered by Nuvera's
Quadrivium drive, which incorporates world-leading hydrogen
generation technology with state-of-the-art fuel cells in four
distributed wheel power modules.
This diversion from traditional
drive trains gave Pininfarina the freedom to design the car with
the passenger in mind rather than the engine, resulting in a
highly stylized car of the future. "It has been a great pleasure
for Pininfarina to work with Nuvera on the Sintesi project,"
commented Andrea Pininfarina, Chairman and Chief Executive
Officer of Pininfarina. "We hope that this collaboration can be
repeated in the future."
Quadrivium drive is based on
Nuvera's Andromeda(TM) fuel cell and STAR(TM) hydrogen generator
technologies, which together offer higher efficiency as compared
to an internal combustion engine.
"Nuvera was honored to have been chosen by
Pininfarina to work with them on this cutting edge project," commented
Bill Mitchell, Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
"When faced with the ambitious challenge
of making a high performance power train using ecologically benign
technology, Nuvera engineers changed direction away from conventional
technologies and embraced a radical new fuel cell concept."
