Electric Car Database
The Rapide has been in production since 2010, and will become Aston Martin’s first electric car, gaining a capital E at the end of its model (see what they did there?). You might never get to see one in real life as there are only 155 RapidEs in the world. Aston seems to be starting small compared to other luxury car makers. They are only going with a 65 kWh battery pack that allows for a WLTP rated range of 200 miles and a 0-60mph time of less than 4 seconds. So the specs don’t seem out of this world, but it seems like Aston Martin would like to get their foundations set, before moving on to bigger projects. Since this is Aston’s first electric car, they were really careful to receive feedback from their 155 customers to see how they could improve on their electric efforts in the future.
