    Aston Martin’s future EV line-up will be powered by batteries supplied from US-based EV startup, Lucid, that also makes the popular Lucid Air EV sedan. Lucid’s components will form the basis of Aston’s new battery-electric car platform, set to underpin a range of models including an electrified hypercar, sports car, GT and SUV.

    3. More details to be revealed on Jun 27, 2023

    Lucid only produces the Lucid Air EV sedan at the moment that comes with single-, dual- and tri-motor powertrains, of which the most powerful outputs more than 1200hp. It says its current-generation motors are capable of producing up to 670hp while weighing slightly less than 74kg apiece. Aston Martin also confirmed it will continue to have access to Mercedes-Benz technologies including powertrains (both electric and internal combustion) and electrical architectures. First Aston Martin EV will arrive by 2026. This will be a “new product” on a “new platform”, chief creative officer Marek Reichman said earlier this month.

    Aston Martin will start deliveries of its first plug-in hybrid model – the Valhalla supercar – next year, and by 2026 each of its model lines will offer an electrified powertrain.
