The press service of the British automaker announced the start of mass production of the first ever crossover brand Aston Martin. Deliveries are scheduled to begin next month.

The coronavirus pandemic and the resulting financial crisis hit Aston Martin seriously – the British automaker reported a loss of $ 146 million for the first quarter of 2020. After a major investment of $ 663 million from a major businessman, Lawrence Stroll, the premium brand decided to focus on starting sales of its first crossover in the world.

According to the company’s press service, the serial production of the DBX model has finally started at the St. Atan plant in Wales.

“I am honored to be here today and to be present at the assembly of our first Aston Martin DBX crossover,” commented Aston Martin COO Keith Stanton after the first assembled instance of the DBX crossover rolled off the assembly line. “I’m very proud of the Aston Martin team, which has worked so hard to streamline the assembly process for our new model.”

With the start of production, the first copies of DBX should be delivered to their owners later this month, it is known that Europeans will be the first to receive them. Later, during the third quarter, the crossover should also reach other markets.

The DBX will only be available with a V8 engine, and prices will start at $ 192,986. Later, other versions of the engines will be available to customers, including a hybrid V6 engine. A high-performance version of the AMR with a V12 engine is also expected.

“The launch of the Aston Martin DBX crossover is a historic moment for Aston Martin and Wales,” said Ken Skates, Minister of Economy, Transport and North Wales.
