Aston Martin’s first electric car will be a limited edition of 155 available in 2019, packing instantaneous power delivery thanks to an advanced drivetrain built by the experts at Williams Advanced Engineering.
Andy Palmer, president and CEO of Aston Martin, said: “Having unveiled the RapidE Concept back in October 2015 we reach another milestone with the confirmation that we are now putting the first all-electric Aston Martin into production.”
They didn’t release any new spec on the car, but when first unveiling the prototype vehicle, Palmer said that they are aiming for it to be all-wheel-drive with over 200 miles of range, 800+ hp and is expected to retail for $200,000 to $250,000.
All Palmer would say about the expected performance of the production RapidE was that the instantaneous power delivery common to all electric vehicles would provide “a unique driving experience”.
Palmer did say the styling of the customer cars would be based on that of the Rapide AMR concept, which we saw at the Geneva motor show in March 2017.
