The Aston Martin Cygnet has been apparently axed by the British based automaker, according to a recent report.
One of the most useless and hated vehicles in Aston Martin’s lineup, the Cygnet, has left the production line after the company has pulled the plug on the model. The announcement hasn’t been made official just yet but according to a report, made by The Supercar Kids, who has spoken to an Aston Martin representative, the Aston Martin Cygnet will not be produced anymore.
However, the model in question can still be found in stock, at a variety of dealerships, but the reason for pulling the plug on it remains unknown. This means we can speculate and a good answer for the action would probably be the fact that this is actually an overpriced Toyota iQ.
The Aston Martin Cygnet is helping the company to comply with the European Union imposed fleet average emissions and the model has been in production since 2011, being assembled in Gaydon, Warwickshire, UK. The Cygnet is powered by a 1.3 liter four-cylinder petrol engine, which is producing a total output of 97 HP (72 kW), sent to the wheels through a 6-speed manual or a CVT. The average fuel consumption stands at 3.99 L / 100 km and the CO2 emissions stop at 110 g/km.
