The British based automaker Aston Martin has recently pulled the wraps off its latest creation, a plug-in hybrid version of the DB9.
According to the car manufacturer, the plug-in hybrid version of the DB9 has been produced in collaboration with Bosch. The model in question is a prototype developed which will be tested over the following months and the results will be presented this autumn. Bosch has fitted the Aston Martin DB9 in question with an infotainment system and a bespoke instrument cluster which is using new TFT screens and with some other tweaks, which are expected to make their way into a possible production version.
Besides these features, the model is powered by a 6.0 liter V12 engine, mated to two electric motors. The total output produced by the hybrid powertrain stands at 740 HP. The sports car has a 180 kWh battery which can be charged from a socket. The 0 to 100 km/h sprint takes 3.7 seconds in this prototype and the model is 20 percent faster than the standard version. The electric range stands at 25.7 km. Top speed hasn’t been announced yet. Additional details on the Aston Martin DB9 Plug-in Hybrid are limited for the moment and will be announced once the model will be officially presented.
