DBX Concept May Preview A Proper Aston Martin Crossover

Aston Martin has come a long way since the awkward-looking Lagonda SUV concept unveiled six years ago at the Geneva Motor Show.

However, the automaker hasn’t given up on the idea of building a crossover, and has returned to Geneva with a radically different interpretation called the DBX Concept.

Way more appropriate for the Aston Martin brand than the Lagonda mammoth SUV study, the high-riding, all-wheel drive DBX luxury GT concept may preview a production model that would combine style and luxury with added practicality compared to the automaker’s traditional models.

Don’t get your hopes up too high, though. “This is, clearly, not a production-ready sports GT car, but it is a piece of fresh, bold thinking about what Aston Martin GT customers around the world could request of us in the future,” Aston Martin’s CEO Andy Palmer was quick to point out.

Still, such a model will come, and the point of the study is to test the market’s reaction. “We will, in due course, be entering a car into the new DBX space and I am very much looking forward to seeing how this concept is received not only here today, but also by our legion of existing loyal customers and by those potential customers around the world who have, to this point, yet to consider one of our cars,” the executive added.

I think you will agree that Aston Martin is on the right track to finding the ideal shape for its first crossover. As for the electric powertrain consisting of inboard-of-wheel motors powered by lithium sulphur cells, the automaker describes it as “experimental engineering,” which most likely means it won’t make it to production.
