The maximum speed likely to be 250 kilometers per hour.
The British company Aston Martin is almost ready to introduce its first electric road car, after many years of work.
The company has already published a teaser trailer of the luxury electric sedan.
According to preliminary data, the car will be equipped with two electric motors: they will be installed on the rear axle and will be able to issue a total of 610 horsepower. Feed the motors from a battery pack installed in place of the V12 engine. The battery consists of 5600 lithium-ion cells, has the capacity of 65 kilowatt-hours.
The maximum speed likely to be 250 kilometers per hour. According to preliminary information, Aston Martin Rapide E can accelerate to 60 mph (96 kph) in less than four seconds.
The sedan has some changes in design to accommodate the new powerplant. Traction battery Rapide E is divided into blocks, which took the place of the V12 engine, and gas tank.
Aston retains the tendency to reduce the weight of the sports car, thanks to the use of alloys and composite materials, as well as slightly changing aerodynamics. However, the novelty may seem familiar to the people who ran the Rapide S V12. Aston Martin has set up a control and transmission, therefore, to look more like a model with a gasoline engine.
The problem is that the new Aston Martin will be hard to obtain even very wealthy people. Aston will produce only 155 copies of this car. Production begins in the fourth quarter of 2019, and assume that they will all be sold before the first electric sedan Aston Martin will notice on the streets. The price of electric cars is not called.
