    Ferrari has started road testing its first ever EV, which will be assembled at a newly constructed facility in Maranello, Italy. The first glimpse of its test mule, sporting parts from other cars, was seen on the outskirts of Maranello.

    Ferrari EV mule: what exactly is it?

    The final Ferrari EV will look completely different from the test mule. Resembling a large hatchback, it is actually the bodyshell of a Maserati Levante SUV replete with fake quad exhausts at the back and a different looking rear bumper. Things get even more interesting up front with the botched up Ferrari Roma headlamps. The test mule has much bigger wheels than the standard Levante and has a lowered suspension. The wider track has been covered by plastic extensions and the front grille has been closed off as well.

    Ferrari EV: what else is known?

    Set to be revealed next year, the Ferrari EV, according to a Reuters report, is expected to cost over USD 5,00,000 (approximately Rs 4.17 crore), before options. Leaked patents suggest that it will be a two-seater featuring an electric motor on each of the four wheels. 

    The new factory will be capable of building EVs, hybrids and ICE cars that will help boost annual production to an estimated 20,000 units.
