Shown at Eurobike and subsequently scooping one of the show’s awards, the design house paired with the Accell Group-owned Diavelo to create the build.
The 16kg E-voluzione is, as you might expect a sight to behold, with the top model blending a carbon fibre frame with a fully integrated and removable 500Wh Panasonic battery. A Brose motor is further integrated into the frame, while clean lines are maintained by a custom Gates belt drive and eight-speed Shimano gearhub.
According to the website, three models are set to form the range; a cruiser, middle of the road build and sporty version. Prices as yet haven’t been revealed, though the firm’s website offers contact for sales and distribution enquiries.
“Evoluzione represents a perfect synthesis of our spirit: sporty character and eco-friendly soul,” offers Paolo Pininfarina, Chairman of the Group. “Sporty and dynamic, (this is) a harmonic bike able to guarantee high performances and great comfort”.
India’s Tech Mahindra, an information technology firm with numerous Fortune 500 companies on its books and revenues in excess of $4 billion in the past year, has a controlling stake in Pininfarina. The business has increasingly shown interest in eco-concious mobility.
