Comments Off on Aston Martin is releasing its first electric car in 2019

Aston Martin is known for creating some of the sexiest, most powerful cars in the world, but times are changing. Today the automaker shoves large gas guzzling V8 and V12 engines under the hood of its models, but starting in 2019, something greener is coming into the fold. Aston Martin has confirmed that its first electric car , the RapidE, will be introduced in 2019. Two years ago, Aston Martin teased the idea of a fully-electric car with the RapidE concept and now they are ready to make the concept a reality. For the RapidE, Aston Martin is going to create a rival to the Tesla Model S , with its four-doors and powerful electric motor. They are teaming up with Williams Advanced Engineering, who worked on the original concept, to create the RapidE.

RapidE will showcase Aston Martin’s vision, desire and capability to successfully embrace radical change, delivering a new breed of car that stays true to our ethos and delights our customers.” Images @Aston Martin + Aston Martin
