The new Aston Martin RapidE will never go into production. At the last moment, Aston Martin decided not to put the electric car into production and now all prepaid cars will be refunded. Ready-made RapidE will become experienced cars.
The decision of the Aston Martin management turned out to be rather unexpected, especially when you consider that the serial version of Aston Martin RapidE was shown at several auto shows. Most likely, the reason for this decision is the financial situation of the company, because 2019 was not as successful for it as it was planned. Aston Martin plans to focus on the production of the new DBX crossover.
Recall that the electric car Aston Martin RapidE was planned to be released in a limited series of 155 cars. It is equipped with two electric motors with a total capacity of 609 liters. from. and is able to accelerate to hundreds in 4 s and develop 250 km / h.
Cruising range RapidE is not very large – 322 km on the WLTP cycle. For a car worth 285 thousand euros, this is far from an impressive indicator.
