Aston Martin DBX concept unveiled at Geneva

Aston Martin DBX concept unveiled at Geneva

Renowned British sports car maker Aston Martin has unveiled the DBX concept at the Geneva Motor Show. This is an amalgam of a coupe and a luxury grandtourer that is eco-friendly and electric. This concept features an all-electric powertrain and is the first Aston EV. 

In an interview Aston Martin CEO, Dr.Andy Palmer reveals the details about the company’s maiden attempt at making an EV.

It is powered by in-wheel motors, gets a drive-by-wire electric steering, carbon ceramic brakes, a KERS energy recovery system, and cameras in place of actual mirrors. 

The design isn’t revolutionary, but the shape is a clear departure from what we have known Astons for. It has a high-riding coupe look that looks unique for an Aston Martin, yes, it looks different. While it looks close to production form, Palmer has cleared the air by sayin,: "This is, clearly, not a production-ready sports GT car, but it is a piece of fresh, bold thinking about what Aston Martin GT customers around the world could request of us in the future.”

I asked my team at Aston Martin to expand their thinking beyond conventions, to explore what the future of luxury GT motoring would look like in years ahead, and the DBX Concept you see before you is the result."

The DBX Concept is more than a thought starter for us and for our customers, though. We will, in due course, be entering a car into the new DBX space and I am very much looking forward to seeing how this concept is received not only here today, but also by our legion of existing loyal customers and by those potential customers around the world who have, to this point, yet to consider one of our cars."

This is a step in the right direction for Aston Martin and with every car manufacturer working on electric cars for the future, who knows we might see a DB7 with a hybrid powertrain in the future.
