“Created to defy conventional thinking about the luxury GT segment”, Aston Martin claims the DBX Concept “widens the appeal of the iconic British luxury brand” and “reaches out to a more diverse global audience than ever before”.
Imagined by chief creative officer Marek Reichman and his team at Aston’s headquarters in Gaydon, Warwickshire, the all-electric DBX Concept showcases “not only cutting edge engineering but also a major evolution of the British brand's world-renowned and highly-regarded design language”.
By way of some comparison, the BMW 18 is powered by a hybrid combination of liquid-cooled Li-ion 7.1kWh battery with an effective capacity of 5.2kWh, and a three-cylinder turbocharged gasoline engine driving through an Aisin six-speed automatic transmission. These give a total range of 330 mile (530km).
All of which raises the interesting prospect of how Aston Martin's engineers will deal with this exciting, but fast-moving area of powertrain technology.
