Aston-Martin-DBX-02-live

Not content to let Tesla have all the fun, the Aston Martin DBX Concept shows its take on an all-electric “high luxury GT” crossover.

The design study uses inboard electric motors for each wheel to move the crossover along, each motor powered by lithium sulphur cells. Steering the DBX Concept is done via drive-by-wire, while braking and energy regeneration is handled via its KERS system.

Four adults can make use of both front and rear cargo spaces on their way to the countryside, while the driver and front passenger can view driving data via the concept’s HUD. LED exterior lighting, rearview cameras, and a black pearl ensemble enhanced with a micro-fine layer of chrome are some of the other features available.

    Well, since Ford’s been imitating the Aston grill for a while now with great success, I guess they can’t be too surprised that Aston Martin has decided to start building Mustangs in response.

    That was my first thought as well.

    Ditto. Except I thought “Fusion” from the front. The side views are definitely Mustang.

    My first thought was “Fisker”.

    If they were to build this, it would probably be highly successful. The raised (excuse me) crossover coupe/crossover sedan seems like the next big thing and a progression from the BMW X4-class of vehicles.

    I never got Ford from it though. I pulled up an image of the Mustang to see if I saw what you guys see and….it’s such a reach.

    How many dinosaurs did they skin to make the interior?!

    I don’t really like this at all. Make sports GT cars for cruising, and make a separate SUV model like Bentley. Don’t make whatever this AMC Eagle type thing is.

      I concur…although I’m not impressed with what I’ve seen of the Bentley Bentayga because I don’t think it distinguishes itself enough from its plebeian Audi, Porsche and Volkswagen sisters. This DBX thing is along the same vein as the Local Motors Rally Fighter, or whatever that thing is called.

    WTF? The headlights look like someone’s eyes were sewn shut.

    Side profile…. agreed. Looks like a Mustang who’s eaten too much spicy curry.
