Aston Martin and Britishvolt will work together towards developing a novel battery cell technology designed for high-performance cars
In a recent announcement, British luxury carmaker Aston Martin has stated that it will join hands with the lithium-ion battery cell technologies company Britishvolt to build brand-new battery cell technology. Both the companies will work together towards developing a novel battery cell technology designed for high-performance cars.
Aston Martin is planning to unleash its first battery-electric vehicle by the end of 2025, and it is expected to be a direct replacement of one of its current sports cars. The luxury carmaker will also aim to provide an electrified powertrain option to all new product lines by 2026, focusing on displaying a fully electrified core portfolio by 2030.
Aston Martin, the company, mainly known for its gasoline-fueled luxury vehicles, is now attempting to extend its offering to customers by catering to the current need of the electric vehicle market. While Aston Martin is focusing on EVs, the internal combustion engine will be crucial to the business, and the company has recently launched a new, nonelectric SUV, called the DBX707.
