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, Switzerland.

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."
