The Rapide E will be the company's first entry into the electric car market. There is no doubt, it will have superior performance and craftsmanship. The exclusiveness of Aston Martin cars will continue in today's all-electric era.

The first car will be manufactured in the all-new state-of-the-art production facility at St Athan. With the launch of this car, it will be the first zero-emission luxury car brand. Furthermore, the first production run will be limited to 155 units. The development of the Rapide E is done in collaboration with Williams Advanced Engineering (WAE).

Aerodynamics:

The Aston Martin design team consistently worked hard to improve the aerodynamic efficiency of the car. The Honeycomb front grill takes the place of traditional metal vanes.

Rapid E has a lower cooling requirement of the electric powertrain. It gives freedom to improve and optimize the frontal area with less aerodynamic drag. So, they simply reduce the airflow through the car's body. As a result, the car is more aerodynamically efficient. Hence, it offers more range in one charge.

The underfloor of the car is intelligently redesigned. It streamlines the airflow underneath the car, passing directly to the large rear diffuser. Hence, more aerodynamic efficiency.
