Pininfarina is an Italian design company that typically works with sports car brands such as Ferrari, but the company has taken its luxury vehicle experience and applied it to the world of bicycles with its E-voluzione. The electric bicycle has a sleek, aggressive and sporty design, while also being environmentally friendly.

Generally, e-bikes have a large battery pack that creates a clumsy look while also upsetting the bikes' balance. Pininfarina's E-voluzione overcomes this design challenge by housing the battery, motor, light and display within the bike's frame (rather than on the outside.) That design feature improves balance and performance while giving the bike a faster appearance as well.

Adding to the E-voluzione's high performance, the bike weighs in at just 16 kilograms -- far lighter than the average e-bike.
