Electric liftback Rapide E does not get on the conveyor.

Aston Martin revised its plans for the current year and refused to release the electric car Rapide E, which was originally planned to be released in a limited edition of 155 units. It is noted that the development and production of the DBX crossover required significant costs and, against the background of the not light financial situation of the brand, the management decided to abandon the electric car in favor of the more popular SUV segment.

 Tthe electric car was developed in collaboration with Williams Advanced Engineering. The Aston Martin Rapide E concept car was presented back in 2015. Initially, it was expected that 400 electric cars would be produced annually.
