The revival of Aston Martin goes through the DBX, but also through a new generation of electric cars. The first model will arrive in 2025.
A few days ago, Aston Martin unveiled its new Racing Green strategy. Overall, the brand has only confirmed what its leaders had been able to suggest recently in various interviews.
Aston Martin therefore wishes to become one of the first luxury brands in the field of electrics and, more generally, that of sustainable mobility. By 2030, the Gaydon firm has confirmed that every new car in its range will be electrified, whether a pure sports car, a GT or even an SUV.
Hybrid first, then electric
The first step will not be the first 100% electric Aston Martin, but a plug-in hybrid. Thus, in 2024, the brand will present the Valhalla, a supercar equipped with a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 of Mercedes-AMG origin. Originally, it was to feature a new in-house developed 3.0-litre six-cylinder engine, but plans were changed when Lawrence Stroll took over the marque about a year ago.
After Valhalla, there will be the first electric. It will be presented in 2025. In 2026, all models in the range will be entitled to their electrified variant.
An unprecedented Aston Martin?
Aston Martin has yet to release information on what the first all-electric model will be, but engineers are continuing development working on Mercedes bases. Since a recent agreement, the starred brand has made available to the Gaydon firm its electrical componentswhich are then reviewed by Aston Martin engineers.
The new EVA2 platform from Mercedes, the one that equips the EQS and EQS SUV, could even be reused by the English brand. It remains to be seen what will be Aston Martin’s first electric, the Rapide E project having been abandoned.
In the near future, if not this year, Aston Martin will present its first hybrid model. It will be the DBX, which should take the same powertrain as the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 SE Performance with no less 843 horsepower under the hood.
