Aston Martin has confirmed that it will introduce a new Lagonda SUV in 2021. The SUV will take inspiration from the Lagonda Vision concept that debut earlier this year in Geneva and under the skin it will be powered by a fully electric powertrain.
The Lagonda SUV will be the first electric model from the Lagonda lineup, which is expected to get a second electric model by 2023. The overall design of the SUV will be an evolution of the Vision concept.
“In reviving one of the most iconic names in motoring we have created a unique opportunity,’ said Aston Martin President and Chief Executive Officer, Dr Andy Palmer. ‘One that allows us to cast aside an inherited 20th century approach and instead design cars around 21st century demands and desires. The Lagonda SUV is the first of its kind: a spacious, high-performance 4×4 that successfully reconciles a love of technology, luxury and style.”
Aston Martin hasn’t announced any other details about the Lagonda SUV, like its driving range or even a hint at how much it will cost.
“The Lagonda SUV will retain the boldness of the Vision Concept’ said Aston Martin EVP and Chief Creative Officer, Marek Reichman. ‘Lagonda is a luxury brand, but it is also one rooted in technology. It will be like no other SUV to drive, so its looks have to reflect that new reality and to serve as pathfinder to a future in which the most desirable and prestigious automobiles still have a place.”
