Aston Martin will reveal a future model line-up that includes a new full-electric car at a capital markets day for investors this summer, Chairman Lawrence Stroll said.
The UK-based luxury brand is currently overhauling its three core front-engine sports cars – the DB11, the Vantage and the DBS -- with the first one to be delivered to customers this autumn, Stroll said on an earnings call with investors on Wednesday.
Aston Martin has not said which of those three would reach buyers first, but the DB11 is the brand’s oldest model, having been launched in 2016. The automaker has not said whether the overhaul will be a facelift or more extensive.
The three cars are expected to be shown at the capital markets day, although Aston Martin has not announced a date for the event.
"You will see the cars this summer that are going to take us through our combustion story, our hybrid story and take us through our plans for electrification," Stroll said on the call. "It will be a real clear vision of the journey I’ve been building for the last three years."
Stroll also hinted that Aston Martin would show a prototype of a mid-engine sports car that would sit below the Valhalla plug-in hybrid hypercar, which was unveiled in 2021 and is now expected in 2024 as a competitor to the 986-hp Ferrari Stradale SF90.
Under Andy Palmer, the CEO at the time, Aston Martin in 2019 announced plans to build a mid-engine car called the Vanquish that would be launched in 2022, but Stroll has not mentioned it since taking a majority stake in the struggling automaker in 2020.
