Aston Martin Shares Details Regarding its First Electric Vehicles to Come
Hallowed British automaker Aston Martin sells very high-end vehicles only, and its yearly sales add up roughly to what Toyota sells just of its RAV4 model, every month, in Canada only. Be that as it may, the company has been busying readying its own shift to electric mobility, just like the automotive giants around it.
Aston Martin this week provided some details on the first two battery-powered models it plans to bring to market, with the help and cooperation of its partner Daimler.
Speaking to the Financial Times, company stakeholder Lawrence Stroll confirmed that at least two electric models are in the works. One will be a sports car in the mold of the DB11, the other an SUV. Both will be built in the UK, meaning they won't come off a Mercedes-Benz assembly line.
Two things remain to be finalized, however, the first being the models’ very design. On that front, we can expect to see the brand's signature design intact, but with the freedoms that designing an electric car allows designers, it will be interesting to see what direction Aston Martin goes in. The other unknown has to with nomenclature: Lawrence Stroll said his team hasn't even decided on their names yet.
