Another electric model was also mentioned, more precisely a sporty model, which will be manufactured in the Gaydon factory.

 

The platform, bodywork and suspension will all be from Aston Martin. Everything except the engines and batteries, which will come from Mercedes. This is already the case for the V8 and the transmissions found on the Vantage or the DBX.

 

“We are far ahead of our competitors thanks to our partnership with Mercedes,” which owns 20 percent of the British carmaker, Lawrence Stroll told the Financial Times about electrification.

 

It has also been revealed that this electrification could change the name of Aston Martin models, which would no longer bear the two letters “DB”.
