Aston Martin rapide electric

Aston Martin unveiled a fully electric concept of its Rapide S four-door sports sedan, developed in collaboration with Williams Advanced Engineering, at a posh do in London where Prince William met with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

At the event, Aston Martin and Chinese investment group ChinaEquity announced an agreement to explore the development of a production version of the RapidE concept, which could be brought to market in around two years.

“We see luxury electric vehicles as an intrinsic part of our future product portfolio and welcome ChinaEquity into the next phase of study for the project development,” said Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer. “The exciting RapidE concept tangibly demonstrates the capability and ambition of Aston Martin towards developing low- and zero-emission sports cars.

“We feel confident that there are significant opportunities for electric cars in China and the world,” said ChinaEquity Chairman Chaoyong Wang.
