Aston Martin DBX To Stick With Petrol Engines

Aston Martin DBX To Stick With Petrol Engines

Aston Martin has nixed plans to offer an all-electric powertrain in its first production SUV. The model was previewed by the all-electric DBX concept, which debuted at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. But in an interview with Automotive News, Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer said the SUV will be offered with gasoline engines only, ruling out diesel and plug-in hybrid versions as well.

Formula One’s commercial rights holders had set out their vision for the future beyond 2020 to team bosses at the Bahrain Grand Prix, second race of the season, earlier on Friday.

While the Bentley Bentayga is available with diesel and plug-in hybrid powertrains, Palmer said he believes diesel engines are living on borrowed time. The executive also dismissed plug-in hybrid technology as it adds weight and cost.

While the DBX concept was a two-door crossover, the production model is expected to be a four-door model. The company may have hinted at the final design with its April Fool’s Day joke which was a monster truck challenger dubbed Project Sparta.
