Auto Express - - Winter Driving Special -

AS­TON is one of a hand­ful of sports car mak­ers mak­ing their first ven­tures into the world of SUVS. And un­til the elec­tric Rapide sa­loon ar­rives, the SUV will be the Bri­tish car maker’s first EV.

Pre­viewed by the DBX Con­cept, the Tesla Model X ri­val will be built by hand at a brand new fa­cil­ity in Wales.

While a fully elec­tric ver­sion is on the way, As­ton will also offer the SUV with the op­tion of tur­bocharged V8 and V12 en­gines. Four-wheel drive will fea­ture on an As­ton for the first time as well, al­though this isn’t re­ally meant to be a high-end Land Rover ri­val.
