Also, they announced that they will build only 155 units of the model and the owners will be very proud of their cars.
The Aston Martin Rapide E is the first electric vehicle from the British luxury brand. It is powered by a pair of electric motors installed in the rear, with a total power output of 610 HP and a truck-like torque of 950 Nm (700.7 lb-ft). The power is sent to the rear wheels via a limited-slip differential.
The battery pack has 65 kWh and is installed where the 6.0-liter V12 engine and gearbox from the gasoline-powered Rapide used to sit. With all these, the four-door electric supercar is able to reach 60 MPH (97 kph) in under 4 seconds. The total range of the vehicle is 200 miles (321 km) and the charging capacity is 185 miles range/hour if plugged into a 400 V – 50 kW charger.
Inside, the instrument cluster is filled with a 10” LCD, which shows all the important data for the vehicle. The Rapide E is also the most digitalized Aston Martin ever. It has a dedicated app that even shows where the vehicle is parked, when is the next service due and charging status if needed.
