The first pure EV from the storied British automaker, the four-door will be the first vehicle to leave Aston Martin’s new St Athan production facility, where it’s focusing its electrification efforts.
That’s no bad thing when you consider the sleek roofline of the sedan.
The Rapide E adds a honeycomb front grille, and new venting since the EV requires less cooling than its gas equivalent.
In the process aerodynamics are up, something helped by a new underfloor design and a larger rear diffuser.
Forged aluminum wheels have an aero-friendly design of their own, and are outfitted with low rolling-resistance tires specially designed for the Rapide E by Pirelli.
Of course, as it’s an Aston Martin it needs to be quick, too.
