Expect lots of carbon fibre details and exquisite leatherwork. Now, we're seeing the next stage in that journey. It was here that Lagonda was re-launched as the maker of high-tech luxury cars featuring all-electric power and an arresting design making use of the packaging advantages of electric vehicles (EVs). It borrows styling cues - and melodrama - from the Vision Concept, as well as an all-EV drivetrain. One of the goals of the design team is to ensure that Lagonda vehicles look like no other on the market, not only to stand out from the crowd but also to reflect the technology they're packing.
The concept (teased above) provides "explicit clues" to the look of the company's first 21st century model, according to chief executive officer Andy Palmer. This darkened preview image of the front of the auto shows that the upcoming electric SUV has a clear visual link to the previous sedan concept. Aston has claimed a range of 644km, as well as a battery pack capable of rapid wireless charging in just 15min. We'll know more in four weeks.
Indeed, the production version of this SUV will enter production as the first new Lagonda vehicle.
The new teaser is the only news from the brand about the Lagonda since the reveal of the Lagonda Vision Concept in Geneva previous year that sought to integrate as many cool features and technologies into the Lagonda before being trimmed down to a real production version of the auto.
