In the next two years, the British manufacturer Aston Martin plans to release 10 new variants of existing models.
Under the leadership of former Mercedes-AMG boss Tobias Moers, the British brand is focusing on the future of the DBX. It is now clear that Aston Martin is preparing at least two additional derivative versions for its SUV in the next 24 months. One of them may have some form of electrification. Details about what other new options are in development remain classified.
Speaking to the Financial Times, Mears confirmed recent reports that future Mercedes-AMG engines that will be delivered to Aston Martin will be more customized than those currently in use.
The future of the Aston Martin V12 is also in doubt. Since the car manufacturer needs to comply with Euro 7 regulations, it is Clear that ensuring compliance with its V12 engine is proving to be a difficult task. Thankfully, Moers has expressed interest in saving the engine, telling the Financial Times that “V12 fans” can save it.
While Aston Martin will venture into the world of electrification with the new DBX variant and presumably some of its other models, it still sees some life in its international internal combustion engines. In fact, Lawrence Stroll recently told the Financial Times in a separate interview that even by 2030, the company will still produce traditional engines.
