Aston Martin has pulled the wraps off the new RapidE Concept, which is nothing more than an electric vehicle co-developed with Williams Advanced Engineering.
If you were thinking that Aston Martin has fallen behind its main competitors in terms of “green” technology, you are so wrong, because the British based car brand is proving otherwise with the unveil of this brand new RapidE Concept. The model in question is nothing more than an electric vehicle which has been jointly developed with Williams Advanced Engineering and the carmaker is currently looking into the possibility of a production version.
“The new RapidE concept has been developed in collaboration with Williams Advanced Engineering at its facility in Grove, Oxfordshire. It is on display today in support of a creative summit organized by the British government’s successful GREAT campaign to showcase the best of what the UK has to offer and encourage people to visit, do business, invest and study in this country”, says the automaker in its press release.
As we’ve mentioned above, a production version of such a model has been taken into consideration during the Lancaster House event, where Aston Martin and ChinaEquity, a Chinese investment group, have announced their plans to explore the development of such a car. If all things will be put together, than the new Aston Martin RapidE should be put together at the Gaydon, Warwickshire headquarters and brought to the market in approximately two years. Sadly, the automaker declined to release any technical specs on the vehicle for now.
