Aston Martin RapidE concept revealed, possible production version could arrive in two years

Aston Martin has released first details for the RapidE electric vehicle concept, that is based on the Rapide S, revealing minor visual changes compared to the its petrol burning production model.

The RapidE was jointly developed with Williams Advanced Engineering and for some reason technical details were not released, though they did mention they are exploring the possibility of a production variant with Chinese investment group ChinaEquity. If green-lighted, the RapidE will be built in the United Kingdom and launched in approximately two years.

We have a feeling the concept performance numbers were not very impressive compared to the Tesla Model S and work on it continues.

Aston Martin CEO Dr Andy Palmer commented “The exciting RapidE concept tangibly demonstrates the capability and ambition of Aston Martin towards developing low- and zero-emission sports cars.”
