Aston Martin has been working towards the revival of the Lagonda moniker with their all-new concept making its debut in Geneva. While the concept previewed a coupe-sedan, the news is that the first Lagonda might be an all-electric SUV.
According to AutoExpress, Lagonda might become an all-electric arm of Aston Martin aiming to build luxury and sporty high-end EVs. The first product, the SUV, is expected to come along by 2021 followed by the coupe-sedan in 2023. The solid state batteries will be commercially viable in the next five years and Aston Martin is betting big on Lagonda to ride the wave.
The Lagonda e-SUV will share its bits with the Aston Martin DBX, the first SUV to be built by the British marque. The SUV will be a Jaguar I-Pace rival in all probability in terms of size but will sit a segment above in terms of money. The SUV will come equipped with platforms for fully autonomous driving.
