Aston Martin Rethinks The GT Into An EV

British luxury carmaker Aston Martin presented the DBX Concept EV at the 85th Geneva International Motor Show.

Designed to challenge the current idea of what a luxury GT entry should be, this ev concept sits higher off the ground, incorporates all-wheel drive and gives clues to future design directions the brand may take.


“The DBX Concept is a challenge to the existing status quo in the high luxury GT segment,” said Aston Martin CEO Dr Andy Palmer. “It envisages a world, perhaps a world not too far away, when luxury GT travel is not only stylish and luxurious but also more practical, more family-friendly and more environmentally responsible. I asked my team at Aston Martin to expand their thinking beyond conventions, to explore what the future of luxury GT motoring would look like in years ahead, and the DBX Concept you see before you is the result.”

Dr. Palmer added this concept is far from a production-ready sports GT car, but answers the needs and requests from what customers will ask for in the future.


Practical, the AWD EV concept can accommodate four adults as well as their luggage on trips with its two trunks, one located at the rear in a conventional fashion and another up front behind the grille.

This concept has no engine compartment through its use of electric, inboard-of-wheel, motors powered by lithium sulphur cells and a a kinetic energy recovery system (KERS).
