Aston Martin revealed its 4-door all-electric concept for RapidE, which is supposed to hit the roads in a little over two years from now.
Aston Martin unveiled its elegant electric sedan – developed together with Williams Advanced Engineering – in the prestigious surroundings of the Lancaster House in London, where the meeting between Their Royal Highnesses Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and President of The People's Republic of China, Xi Jinping took place as well. The glamurous sedan is based on the four-door sports sedan Rapide S, but there are no further official details to share at this point.
According to Autocar, Aston Martin is developing two versions of RapidE, a rear-wheel-drive model with a range of about 350 kilometers and the high-performance model with a four-motor set-up and a shorter range.
During the Lancaster House event, Aston Martin and Chinese investment group, ChinaEquity signed an agreement to co-operate on the development of the production version of the RapidE all-electric concept. Should the project turn out to be a success, the luxurious RapidE will be constructed at Aston Martin's headquarters in Gaydon, Warwickshire and is said to appear on the market in approximately two years.
