First Full Electric Aston Martin Sports Car Confirmed For 2025
Mr Moers has incited the next step of his plan for Aston Martin
Aston Martin has been going through ups and downs recently, their new boss Tobias Moers has now released his plan to fix all their problems (we've heard that before). In a recent interview with Topgear.com he explained
In 2025 or 2026, our next-generation sports car will be electric. It’s a given. When it comes to an electric platform, you create one that serves sports cars and SUVs, two doors and four doors, you can be creative. So you merge platforms. We could do that (take a whole electric platform from Mercedes), that’s part of the technology transfer discussion. There’s a chance for the EQS platform, but is it the right platform for a sports brand?
An Aston Martin is a beautiful car, you need a rebel and a gentleman in one, and we can achieve that. You can maintain emotion. I did some exercises with having additional shakers in a car, because emotion is all senses. I think by 2030 we will have 50 per cent of the portfolio purely electric driven, minimum. The rest will be plug-in hybrid and probably a few hundred cars as a track tool. Because that’s still allowed, just for that.
So there you have it, the next gen sports car, which is likely to be the next Vantage will be electric. There is a possibility for powertrain transfer from Mercedes, like they are doing already but with combustion engines and a bit of a roadmap for 2030.
