The all-electric Aston Martin DBX was the surprise plug-in star of the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.

Though details are sparse, seeing Aston Martin head in the electric direction under the leadership of electric car supporter Andy Palmer (formerly a lead man at Nissan) suggests that electrification will soon hit all brands.

The DBX is a pure-electric, all-wheel-drive concept that resembles a a sleek, muscular car, yet has the added ground clearance of a CUV.

Aston says that the DBX presents its vision of what the luxury GT segment will look like down the road.

Some additional DBX details include:

Embracing the very latest engineering techniques and theories, the DBX Concept needs no engine compartment thanks to its use of electric, inboard-of-wheel, motors powered by lithium sulphur cells.

Drive-by-wire electric steering, toughened glass with an auto-dimming ‘smart glass’ inter-layer, and bespoke driver and passenger head-up displays are further examples of its cutting edge technology.

Active LED exterior lights, carbon ceramic brakes with a kinetic energy recovery system (KERS) and rear view cameras in place of conventional mirrors also underline the mould-breaking nature of this luxury GT concept.
