Aston Martin Lagonda showcases Electric Future

Lagonda Vision Concept

Aston Martin Lagonda has recently showcased its zero emission powertrain technologies with the company’s first Electric Future event. Relaunched as the world’s first zero emission luxury brand in 2018, Lagonda will confound traditional thinking and take full advantage of the latest advances in electrification and autonomous driving technologies.

Sitting nose-to-nose will be the company’s first electric sports car, Rapide E and its all-electric Lagonda Vision Concept. With the Lagonda Vision Concept unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in 2018 and the Rapide E at the Shanghai Automotive Show a few months ago the event provides the first chance for the UK to preview the company’s future technologies. 

Currently on the market, the Aston Martin Rapide E is the first battery electric vehicle (BEV) produced by the famous British marque. It will enter production at the end of the year at the company’s second manufacturing facility and the marques Home of Electrification, St Athan which is based in Wales.

With a limited run of just 155, the same number as the vehicle’s electrically limited top-speed, the project has been completed in partnership with Williams Advanced Engineering. Featuring twin electric motors that produce 610 PS and 950 Nm of torque, the Rapide E will be capable of reaching 0-60 mph in less than 4 seconds.

The next appearance for the Rapide E will be its UK dynamic debut at Goodwood Festival of Speed which runs from the 4th until the 7th of July 2019.
