Aston Martin goes electric and launches its first electric vehicle in 2025

  • Aston Martin plans to launch the first electric model in company history by 2025.
  • Ahead of EV, Aston will start delivering its first plug-in hybrid – the Valhalla pictured above – in 2024.
  • Aston also says all of its models will be available with an electrified powertrain by 2026.

    For anyone who hasn’t figured it out yet, the auto industry is having a moment. It seems like every other day another automaker posts plans to switch to an all-electric lineup by the end of the decade. Today, it’s Aston Martin’s turn. Unsurprisingly, the company is targeting 2030 as the expiration date for new internal combustion engine models. Of course, there’s a chance it’ll still build gas-powered special editions outside of its base lineup. Besides this predictable announcement, Aston is also announcing that it will launch its first electric model by 2025.

    A few years ago, the 600-hp Aston Martin Rapide E was to be the British manufacturer’s first production electric vehicle. We even got some seat time in a prototype before Aston canceled plans to build a limited run of 155. Whatever the company’s leaders have learned from this experience, it looks like they’re ready to try again. This time around, we have no idea what the first Aston EV’s body style will be, but this author is willing to bet a year’s salary that it won’t be another four-door hatchback. Could there be an electric version of the DBX SUV? Or maybe the next generation Vanquish will be available with an electric option. After all, its launch is now scheduled for 2025, which fits perfectly with Aston’s schedule.

    Ahead of the arrival of the British brand’s first electric vehicle, the 937hp Valhalla, Aston’s first plug-in hybrid, will begin deliveries in 2024. This model will kick off the planned transition to an electric range by the end of the decade. In four years, Aston says every model in its range will be available with an electrified powertrain. This means that if the DBX or the Vantage is available for the 2026 model year, they will be offered with some type of hybrid option, if not a full-fledged electric version. In the meantime, Aston is keen to let the world know that the light is green when it comes to targeting net zero carbon emissions. Welcome to the club.
