Lagonda Varekai Crossover Could Be Launched In 2021

Aston Martin recently used the Geneva Motor Show to introduce the Lagonda Vision concept but it appears the company’s upcoming production model will be a crossover instead of a sedan.

Auto Express reports the model will be launched in 2021 and was previewed by a 40 percent scale model which was on display in Geneva. At the time, Aston Martin said scale model was created to “illustrate how the Lagonda design language could be adapted for the future.”

The crossover could be called the Varekai and it will reportedly be based on the Aston Martin DBX. Little else is known about the crossover but Aston Martin has previously said “Lagonda aims to be the world’s first zero emission luxury brand.” As a result, upcoming Lagonda models will be electric vehicles with autonomous driving technology.

If the report is correct, the Varekai would become Lagonda’s first crossover since the ill-fated Lagonda concept debuted in 2009. The concept was billed as the “pre-eminent long-distance automobile” but the four-seat crossover was almost universally panned at its unveiling. The company had intended for the concept to help revive the Lagonda brand but that didn’t occur until several years later when the automaker introduced the limited edition Lagonda Taraf.

Getting back to the Varekai, Aston Martin has said future Lagonda models will be “supremely spacious, cosseting and exquisitely appointed.” The models are also slated to embrace creativity and innovation while combining high-performance with zero emissions.
