Aston Martin will build 155 examples of its outrageous 602-horsepower all-electric Rapide E four-door sports sedan. The first units are expected to roll out of the company’s plant in Wales just as 2020 arrives. Two electric motors and a 65 kilowatt-hour battery pack will replace the conventional Rapide’s 6-liter V12 powerplant. Powered by electrons, the RapidE is expected to hit 60 miles per hour in less than four seconds. Torque will be rated at 700 pound-feet. Driving range should be about 200 miles.
Sorry but all 155 units are already pre-sold. But if all goes well, Aston-Martin says the company will make more electric cars.
