The modern car is a technological marvel, but these are the people we must thank for getting us there. And the story begins centuries before the car was born
So starts in September 2021 the. In addition, the company presented the , which is to start 2023. A plug-in hybrid version of the SUV model DBX will be presented shortly. And the series version of the will be a PHEV.
But right electric cars are planned. The first one should replace a burner model with front engine and come to the market in 2025, so Moers. That, was already known. The first electric sports car is already 2025 or 2026 an electric SUV follow, as Moers betrayed in May.

SUV Review: 2021 Aston Martin DBX
The new Aston Martin DBX smells extravagant. I don’t know if it’s just the Bridge of Weir leather my tester was clothed with. Perhaps some fresh English spring air was somehow part of the climate control system. Cripes, maybe the boys from Gaydon have slipped one of those infernal scent machines into the sport-brute’s cabin, creating an internal bouquet of “Benjamins.” Whatever the case, the DBX literally smells like money.

Nor does it just smell expensive, the décor being as artisanal as the aroma.
The current sports car range is to remain longer on the market because of the introduction of electric cars than previously planned. DB11 has been built since 2016, the Vantage since 2017 and DBS since 2018. After the industry habits, these models should be sent to retirement approximately between 2023 and 2025. This fits the date for a first electric car, which should start as mentioned in 2025.manufacturers, which change faster to the electric car than on:

He wanted to introduce the electric sports carwith 800 volts technology, and just a purely electric brand with the traditional name Lagonda justify. But 2020 Aston Martin was almost broke, and the Canadian billionaire Lawrence Stroll, who saved the brand, were the electric plans too expensive.
As with the burners, Moers also wants to set Mercedes technology for the electric cars. For drive technology, the Stuttgart offers shares in Aston Martin. Thus Daimler wants to gradually increase his share to 20 percent. At a takeover, the German Group is not interested in how it is said.

The range—both in miles per charge and breadth of types of cars available—keeps getting better. Our automotive editors have clocked hundreds of miles behind the wheel, evaluating the latest to find which ones were the greatest. That involved off-roading through the mountains near Breckenridge, Colorado, or blasting through the twisty mountain roads outside of Santa Fe, New Mexico. And there are some we had to give mention (the Ford, Tesla, Audi, and Mini Cooper), even though we haven’t gotten time behind the wheel just yet, because of the promise they present in their segments.
