Aston Martin DBX Concept is an all-electric, all-wheel drive luxury GT

Aston Martin has unveiled a very interesting concept called DBX at the 85th Geneva International Motor Show with an idea to defy conventional thinking about the luxury GT segment.

Unlike current Aston Martin models that use naturally aspirated V8 and V12 engines, the DBX concept uses electric in-wheel motors, powered by lithium sulphur cells.

There is also a drive-by-wire electric steering, toughened glass with an auto-dimming ‘smart glass’ inter-layer, bespoke driver, passenger head-up displays, rear view cameras in place of conventional mirrors and carbon ceramic brakes with a kinetic energy recovery system (KERS).

The DBX is not a typical GT as it rides quite high and could be easily considered as a mix of a sporty GT and a crossover.

Aston Martin CEO Dr Palmer explained: “A concept car such as this should, in my view, challenge conventional thinking and explore the art of the possible. In the DBX Concept, I believe we have created a new type of luxury car that can not only broaden the appeal of Aston Martin to a whole new generation of customers, but sit with pride alongside the rest of our range.”

Dr Palmer added: “This is, clearly, not a production-ready sports GT car, but it is a piece of fresh, bold thinking about what Aston Martin GT customers around the world could request of us in the future and it is more than a thought starter for us and for our customers, though.

This is a big surprise and something quite revolutionary from Aston Martin.
