Aston Martin is Developing a New DBX Plug-in Crossover
When someone says Aston Martin, what is the first thing that comes to mind? James bond! The car is among Bond’s most favorite vehicles. However, as you know the technology is progressing and the world is trying to be more eco-friendly, you just can not go around dropping oil from your car or shooting people with missiles.
So, Bond’s most favorite car will have to be more eco-friendly as well.
That’s why Aston Martin has revealed a new car at the New York Auto Show, that’s a plug-in electric vehicle. Bond is going green!
There are actually two cars, one is the Lagonda sedan while the other is the DBX Crossover. These will replace the Rapide as the company CEO Andy Palmer revealed:
First is replacing the entire sports car range; second is the DBX, and that appeals to a different set of audiences; and the third is the sports sedan, which will carry [the Lagonda] badge.
The Lagonda isn’t the Taraf we have been shown already. Even though the sales of that model are really impressive and are expanding beyond Middle-East, the car will not be be released in North America. Fans will not be happy to hear this, but it is a fact.
The reason behind this is car crash testing regulations of the region along with the vehicle’s production run.
As for the DBX plug-in crossover, it will feature four doors but other dimensions are still being adjusted by the company. So we can expect new details in the coming months. Check back with us for more updates.
