This is the same facility where the upcoming Aston Martin DBX SUV will be manufactured.

Aston Martin is in the midst of a revival of fellow historic British brand Lagonda. Then, it was attached to a luxury sedan, only intended for sale in the Middle East.

The biggest difference between the Lagonda and the Cullinan will be with there powertrains, though. For its latest iteration, it'll be a nameplate rather than a specific model.

The Lagonda All-Terrain Concept shares some DNA with the Vision Concept that was revealed at last year's show.

Storm Erik leaves SNOW in its wake as temperatures PLUMMET back down
A yellow weather warning has been issued Norfolk this weekend, with gusts of up to 55mph potentially hitting parts of the region. According to the Met Office, the strongest winds are to be expected in southern Scotland, Northern England and Northern Ireland.

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.
