Just the thought of Aston Martin’s going all electric sends a saddening chill down the spine. The epic V8’s and V12’s are what us enthusiasts live and breathe to listen to. However it is true and every Lagonda on sale in 2025 will be offered with an electric power train. But thankfully the internal combustion engines will continue.
The electrified options will be tailored to suit the character of each car, the Aston Martin Valkyrie and Lagonda Vision being prime examples highlighting how batteries can be adapted for different applications.
According to Aston Martin, the electric vehicle will be the reason a V12 will be able to exist side by side. So basically every product will have an option to be hybridised. As for the petrol engines, a 4-cylinder has been dismissed and there are no current plans for a 6-cylinder. The company intends to stay in the V8/V12 league albeit with electrification and hybrid options.
The first hybrid Aston Martin is almost here thanks to the V12 in the Valkyrie which is already electrically augmented, but the first production hybrid will be the DBX.
