The confirmed DBX crossover has the potential to become a big player for Aston. Unlike the recently revealed three-door concept (seen above), the production DBX will in fact tote five-doors when it comes to market and will sport a plugin-in hybrid powertrain rather than a solely electric drivetrain. Palmer also notes that “it will get a little higher, a little taller, but the overall dimensions are not far off.”
Aston Martin currently builds a Rapide-based Lagonda Taraf ‘supersedan’ (seen at top) for the Middle East and various other select markets, however Palmer says that the limited-run series is entirely separate from the company’s newly announced Lagonda sports sedan. As of yet, no further details abound regarding the Lagonda.
Given that the Rapide will give way to the DBX and Lagonda, pricing for both will likely hover within the same region (Rapide S starts at around $200,000).
