Aston Martin unveils all-electric concept car
23 October 2015
Aston Martin has unveiled a fully electric concept of its Rapide S four-door sports saloon developed in collaboration with Williams Advanced Engineering.
Aston Martin and Chinese investment group, ChinaEquity have agreed to explore the development of a production version of the RapidE concept. If successful, the new luxury sports car would be constructed at Aston Martin’s global HQ in Gaydon, Warwickshire, and could be brought to market in around two years.
“We see luxury electric vehicles as an intrinsic part of our future product portfolio and welcome ChinaEquity into the next phase of study for the project development," says Aston Martin CEO, Dr Andy Palmer. “The exciting RapidE concept tangibly demonstrates the capability and ambition of Aston Martin towards developing low- and zero-emission sports cars.”
