THE FIRST ALL-ELECTRIC ASTON MARTIN
An Aston Martin in every sense, Rapide E has been designed to enhance and build on the feel, character and delivery of the V12-engine Rapide AMR.
Rapide E’s exterior and underbody has been aerodynamically optimised and complemented with newly-designed aluminium wheels, created to achieve higher levels of efficiency, frictional loss and cooling performance.
Rapide E is powered by an 800V electrical architecture battery, encased in a Carbon Fibre and Kevlar casing, with a 65kWh installed capacity using over 5600 lithium-ion 18650 format cylindrical cells. This battery system powers two rear mounted electric motors producing a combined target output of just over 612PS and a colossal 950Nm of torque making it our most powerful Rapide.
With a top speed of 155mph and a sub – 4.0 seconds 0-60mph time and a 50-70mph time of just 1.5 seconds Rapide E unleashes a new electric breed of Aston Martin.
