Aston Martin wants to keep the Lagonda name alive with the new Vision Concept at the ongoing Geneva Motor Show. It is basically a design study from Aston Martin at the moment, elements of which can be seen on the production Lagonda vehicle in as early as 2021.
Lagonda aims to be the first electric luxury carmaker with autonomous driving tech. The Vision Concept gives us a glimpse of a traditional limousine with radical design themes both inside and out. With the absence of a traditional powertrain, the Vision Concept promises ample room for four adults with utmost comfort. The Vision Concept also looks the part with large swooping lines running across the vehicle. The fascia is a future interpretation of the 2016 Lagonda Concept. The stately silhouette is imposing, to say the least. It rides on massive multi-spoke wheels to add to the luxury quotient of the Lagonda moniker.
The interior is an exercise of luxury with design elements fit for an art gallery. The seats are wrapped in exotic materials like handwoven wool, cashmere and silk. The concept’s autonomous driving credentials are highlighted by the minimalistic cabin and rotating front seats. There is also an informative and futuristic steering wheel. Although there are no powertrain details available, the Gaydon-based carmaker claims that the Vision Concept has been configured to accept powerful solid state electric batteries with a range of 400 kilometres. Probably the same running gear that is due from the electric RapidE in a couple of years.
Aston Martin claims that the Lagonda Vision Concept carries a 70 per cent production ready design. The Lagonda Vision Concept can come as a luxury electric limo to rival the future Luxo barges like the Maybach and Bentley.
