DB11 Replacement Could be First Aston Martin EV: Report

Aston plans EV sports cars by mid decade

  • Aston moving to EVs with its next-gen sports cars

  • Brand will launch two EVs in 2025, 2026


Aston Martin is planning on launching its first electric vehicle in 2025. It won’t be a new model to the line, says a new report, instead, it is expected to be the next-generation DB11 sports coupe.

The British sports car company just revealed the mid-engine hybrid Valhalla last week. We also expect a PHEV version of the DBX crossover not long after that car arrives, as well as another PHEV sports car.

CEO Tobias Moers told Automotive News Europe that the brand’s sports cars would be moving from V8 and V12 power to electric in their next generation, with the first to go on sale in 2025. “The succession of our traditional sports segment has to be full electric, no doubt,” the CEO said.

Moers also said that the cars would offer an electric range of at least 600 km, a figure we assume is based on the Euro WLTP cycle.

Switching to fully EV will keep the current cars on the market longer than was the plan, Moers said. The DB11 was launched in 2016, so by 2025 could be looking its age.

Once the electric sports car launches, Moers said that an electric SUV would arrive the same year or the year after. Expect that to be a more critical model for the automaker than the sports car as SUVs continue to dominate the sales charts. Aston has said previously that half its lineup would be fully electric by the end of this decade.
