As­ton Rapide E to wield 602bhp

Autocar - - NEWS -

AS­TON MARTIN HAS re­vealed more tech­ni­cal de­tails of the Rapide E ahead of first de­liv­er­ies next year.

The lux­ury four-door EV will be pow­ered by two rear­mounted elec­tric mo­tors mak­ing a com­bined 602bhp. That translates to a 0-60mph tar­get time of around four sec­onds. Torque is set to be 738lb ft.

The Rapide E will be one of the first pro­duc­tion mod­els to use an 800V elec­tric ar­chi­tec­ture, al­low­ing the bat­ter­ies to be re­plen­ished to a range of 350 miles in one hour and make use of both 350kw DC charg­ers and AC home charg­ers.

As­ton claims the Rapide E is en­gi­neered for re­peat­able per­for­mance with­out any degra­da­tion. The 155mph top speed can be main­tained con­tin­u­ously for more than 10 min­utes, As­ton says.

De­liv­er­ies of the Rapide E will be­gin late next year.

Elec­tric Rapide E will do 0-60mph in about 4sec and hit 155mph
