Two months ago, Aston Martin CEO, Andy Palmer, confirmed the release date for a possible all-electric version of the Rapide.
British carmaker set to challenge Tesla with electric car concept
Aston Martin has unveiled it's first electric car, Electric RapidE Concept.
He said the British carmaker's electric car would fill a space that electric car leader, Tesla Motors, could not.
Palmer said the electric car would be released in two years.
However, Aston Martin clearly beat it's release date as the new electric RapidE S sports sedan concept has just been released.
Co-developed with Williams Advanced Engineering, this concept is expected to come in two different versions; a 550-hp rear-wheel-drive model with a range of about 200 miles and a high-performance shorter range model with a massive 1000 hp.
Sources at the unveiling event, a special summit at the Lancaster House in London, have revealed that the concept car has four separate electric engines which power each of the car’s wheels.
