    Pininfarina, the design house best-known for styling Ferraris, has officially established a new electric vehicle luxury car brand. The announcement was made late last week by Pininfarina parent Mahindra & Mahindra.

    The new company, known as Automobili Pininfarina, says it will launch its first production vehicle by 2020. According to Automobili Pininfarina, which is separate from the Pininfarina Spa design division, its first vehicle will be a pure electric hypercar capable of accelerating from 0-60 in under 2 seconds.

    Details are scarce, but Michael Perschke, head of the new brand, describes the forthcoming EV as "a true hypercar." Perschke also promises a 300 miles range and a price tag of about 2 million euros, according to Automotive News. Not surprisingly, the unnamed electric hypercar will be penned by Pininfarina Spa.
