Aston Martin has confirmed production of its first all-electric model, the RapidE.
Based on the concept car that debuted in October 2015, only 155 will be built, with production set for 2019.
The initial sketches show the RapidE as a four-door sports car with the looks of the Rapide S. The 6.0-litre V12 engine will be replaced by an all-electric powertrain.
Aston Martin has confirmed Williams Advanced Engineering as its lead engineering partner in the project. Williams Advanced Engineering worked on the original Rapid E Concept.
Further details of the electric powertrain and specification can be expected nearer the time of production.
