PostHeaderIcon Engine Options Galore Are In Store For The Aston Martin DBX

Like Bentley, Lamborghini, and Rolls-Royce, Aston Martin isn’t the kind of company you’d normally associate with having an SUV, at least if we were living in ordinary times. But as the King in the North Jon Snow said to the Free Folk, “we’re not living in ordinary times.” SUVs have become one of the biggest segments in the auto industry. Bentley already has the Bentayga out on the market. Lamborghini and Rolls are set to follow suit with the Urus and Cullinan, respectively. And so is Aston Martin and its upcoming DBX crossover, which is scheduled to hit protection in 2019.

Details surrounding the DBX have been slow to arrive, but a new report from Wales Online has revealed a few interesting tidbits about the DBX. One in particular involves the crossover’s side mirrors, or the lack of them. Turns out, the DBX will make use of rear view cameras in place of traditional mirrors. This is a similar setup to how it was presented in the DBX Concept and applied to the Valkyrie hypercar. More importantly, it’s also looking like Aston Martin will proceed with giving the DBX a variety of engine options. Traditional combustion engines are expected to be at the forefront of the offerings, but the British automaker is also looking into adding a hybrid or plug-in hybrid variant, as well as an all-electric model. A timetable for both variants have yet to be announced, but if these plans come to fruition, the DBX could be crossing over into more than just one on-the-rise segment.

PostHeaderIcon Aston Wants An All-electric Rapide With 800 HP By 2017

The sad truth about current electric car technology is that really great electric cars are very expensive, and will continue to be for some time, barring some sort of miracle. Tesla is as successful a company as it is because it accepted this limitation and simply built luxury cars, at least to start with. Other luxury brands are now starting to wonder whether they’re losing out on some of the market, and Aston Martin made the announcement at Pebble Beach that there would be an all-electric version of the 2014 – 2105 Aston Martin Rapide S starting production in 2017.

This may look like an attempt to compete directly with the 2015 Tesla Model S, but the Rapide EV will cost about the same as the gasoline-powered version of the car, which starts at $205,000. So it will be noticeably pricier than the Tesla Model S, as it tops out at $142,000, with Aston saying that the Rapide could get up to $250,000 with various options. Aston won’t skimp on the performance either, and you can expect 800 horsepower being sent to all four wheels, as well as a 200-mile range. Aston will also follow this up with an electric version of the 2015 Aston Martin DBX crossover concept.

PostHeaderIcon Aston Martin Plans To Open New Plant In Alabama For The DBX

Aston Martin is gearing up to manufacture its new DBX crossover, but before production can begin, the British automaker must first decide where it’ll be built. The most likely candidate will be in a new factory created in the southern U.S. state of Alabama. Aston is expected to finalize its decision by the end of the year.

AM’s head honcho Andy Palmer said that a new factory in Alabama is the “obvious choice” in a recent interview with Automotive News Europe. The stateside location is under close examination, as it would give the marque easy access to one of its largest projected consumer markets for the new crossover: “Our principal customers will be in the United States and China,” Palmer said. 

While the Chinese market is also expected to gobble up more than its fair share of the new high-end vehicle, Palmer said it is difficult to export cars from China. Aston would also need to form a new joint venture with a Chinese automaker.

Further incentive for the Alabama location would be proximity to Daimler’s manufacturing plant in Vance, Alabama, roughly 34 miles from Birmingham, although AM did recently refute speculation that the DBX would be built using the Mercedes GL platform. Daimler currently has a 5 percent stake in the company in exchange for a technology sharing agreement that sees the German multinational provide electrical architectures and V-8 engines for Aston’s next-gen sports cars.

PostHeaderIcon Aston Martin DBX Crossover Won't Be Built On Mercedes' platform

Aston Martin could build its first ever crossover on a new lifted sports car platform rather than adopting an existing platform from its industrial partner Daimler. Originally believed to use underpinnings from the Mercedes GLC, Aston’s upcoming DBX will instead likely use a new architecture currently in development for vehicles like the successor to the DB9 2+2 coupe.

Speaking to Automotive News Europe, Aston’s chief executive officer Andy Palmer confirmed that the Mercedes SUV architecture was not what the automaker was looking for, saying that models within the Mercedes GL nomenclature “clearly sit in a very different space to the one we want to go to. They are very much an SUV and we don’t want an SUV.”

Aston’s next-generation in-house architecture, which will use copious amounts of aluminum for a reduced curb weight, is currently under consideration to give the DBX a sportier, more car-like feel: “It just depends how high off the ground it could go. I don’t exclude the possibility of using some [Mercedes] parts, but I would say very much the primary route is our platform,” Palmer said.

Daimler AG, a multinational automotive corporation based in Stuttgart, currently owns a five percent stake in Aston Martin as part of a technology sharing agreement that includes V-8 engines and electronic architecture.

PostHeaderIcon Aston Martin Targets Women Buyers With New DBX Crossover

Now that Aston Martin has committed to building its five-door crossover based on the 2015 DBX Concept, we’re starting to get a better idea about the new model’s business plan. From the sounds of it, instead of marketing to wannabe James Bond drivers, Aston Martin is hoping to attract Jane Bond.

According to a report from Automotive News, Aston Martin’s target demographic for the crossover is “an affluent Californian in her late 30s” – fictionally named Charlotte. Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer went on to say that the vehicle’s key attributes that will draw “Charlotte” include a tall high ride height, safety, flexibility and interior space.

Aston Martin has not said when its crossover will be ready for customers, but it is planning a complete lineup overhaul over the next five years. The production version of the DBX will play a pivotal role, as Aston Martin looks to practically quadruple its sales volume from the current 4,000-ish units sold in 2014 to around 15,000 globally. Following an example set by Porsche and many other luxury automakers, the extra income brought in by sales of the crossover will allow Aston Martin to get even more creative when it comes its sports cars.

PostHeaderIcon Aston Martin Officially Confirms DBX Production

As one of the stars of this year’s Geneva Motor Show, there have been many rumors surrounding the 2015 Aston Martin DBX Concept, but the British automaker confirmed that it would, in fact, be building a production crossover based on the concept vehicle. The announcement was made as part of a press release stating that Aston Martin is planning to raise around $306 million by issuing shares.

Aston Martin did not release any additional details about its impending “luxury GT crossover” including how much/if any of this new cash will be used to open or build a separate assembly line. It sounds like Aston Martin is looking into either building a facility in the Southern U.S. or acquiring an existing plant in England.

In addition to the crossover, the money will also be used to add “extra model lines… by the end of the decade.” This matches up with a recent report that indicates Aston Martin intends a complete lineup overhaul within the next five years, including a DB9 successor that was recently spotted testing at the Nurburgring.

PostHeaderIcon Aston Martin DBX Crossover Could Be Built In The U.S.

Of all the recent talks about foreign automakers opening up new production plants in the U.S., the thought of an American-made Aston Martin might sound the wackiest. With its current facility in Gaydon, U.K. running at almost full capacity, that’s just the scenario that might play out when it comes to the production of a new performance luxury crossover based on the DBX Concept.

As is the recent trend, the talk is that Aston Martin could be looking at building a new plant in the Southern U.S., but there’s also a chance that the crossover’s production could remain in the U.K. using of an old Jaguar plant in Coventry. Automotive News reports that southern states are offering big tax breaks and other incentives to woo new automakers like Volvo, Jaguar Land Rover, and now perhaps Aston Martin.

The report goes on to say that when the crossover does arrive within three or four years, Aston Martin is expecting to produce 8,000 units annually, which is double the number of cars it produced in all of 2014.
