geneva 2015 aston martin dbx concept revealed

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.

    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.

  • Art_Vandelay “Fain also invited President Joe Biden to join the striking workers on the picket line”Yes. Please go on strike Joe. One of this Cosmo Kramer Bagel making strikes that lasts for a decade or so
  • SCE to AUX No sitting President should visit a picket line.
  • Scott So a sled manufacturer makes a sled on wheels. Where is the surprise?
  • Add Lightness I had one of these for a company truck. It was also 2WD thankfully as part-by-part the truck got everything replaced over the course of a year. If it was 4WD, that would have just hurt the company more fixing the extra drivetrain.
  • KOKing I like 2dr SUVs (I'm glad the new Bronco is available w 2 doors; it's MUCH better looking, and I'm finally seeing more of them on the road), but I've seen the Mexico-only 90s Ramcharger a couple of times and it has that same too-big rear window look that these old ones had.
