Is an Aston electric crossover what the world really needs?
Here is something that nobody was expecting to see: an all-wheel drive, all-electric GT/SUV/Crossover concept from where you'd least expect it, Aston Martin. Dubbed the DBX, the concept blends a world of design styles and categories to create this car that is a bit of everything. As tall as a crossover, it's shaped like a luxury GT coupe and offers seating for four adults. Though its design is inspired by current firm offerings, it looks nothing like anything the company has ever made before. But is that a good thing?
As concepts go, little is known about this car, but the company says that the DBX will be fully electric, and family and environmentally "friendly". Not much is known about the car's electric powertrain, but it is expected to fill the place of Aston's mammoth V12 engines. Love it or hate it, the DBX should be pointing both at the company's future design language and its intention of entering unchartered SUV territory, an important category in some if its fastest growing markets.
