Aston Martin Rapide E electric sedan was shown at the Goodwood Speed FestivalJuly 5, 2019
At the speed festival currently underway in the UK, Aston Martin has finally officially unveiled the electric version of its Rapide sedan. The car will be released in a circulation of 155 units.
This year, Aston Martin is hosting a grand show at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, given that the prototype of their first crossover, the DBX, has been joined by the racing edition of the Vantage supercar, named Heritage, as well as the all-electric Rapide E sedan.
As we saw in the official photographs released by Aston Martin in mid-April, the Rapide E looks almost the same as the version of the model with the traditional engine that has existed since the beginning of the decade. This usually poses a problem, as not many modern cars age gracefully, but the Rapide is an exception, as it looks pretty fresh and stylish almost 10 years after its appearance.
The British brand has equipped its environmentally friendly novelty with a pair of electric motors with a total capacity of 601 hp. (448 kW), as well as a battery with a capacity of 65 kW * h. Instant torque is 950 Nm.
Only 155 Rapid E units will be built in total. With acceleration to 96 km / h in less than 4.0 seconds, this will be a very fast car that will exceed all expectations. The maximum speed will be 250 km / h, and the power reserve will be equal to 322 km.
On the official YouTube channel of the festival in Goodwood, there is also another video with the all-electric Rapid E sedan. The accompanying video below gives us a detailed overview of what went down in history as the very first Aston Martin electric car.
