Aston Martin teases its first battery-electric sports car, the Rapide E

Tuesday, October 02, 2018

Aston Martin just released some tantalising details about its forthcoming, ultra-exclusive battery-electric sports car, a first for the famed British marque. This will be a very quick, very expensive, very beautiful car, so buckle up.

The automaker will only make 155 of the extremely fast and expensive vehicles. Releasing details of the car to those too eager to wait, Aston Martin claims the Rapide E will be powered by an 800-volt battery system with 65kWh capacity using over 5,600 lithium-ion 18650 format cylindrical cells. It will have a range of "over 200 miles" with a charging rate of 185 mph using a typical 400V 50kW charger.

The Rapide E has a projected top speed of 155 mph, with a sub-4-second 0-60 mph time and a 50-70 mph time of just 1.5 seconds. With the battery pack located in place of the original 6-litre V12 engine, gearbox and fuel tank, power will be providing to two rear-mounted motors producing a combined target output of just 610PS and 950Nm of torque.
