Lagonda's first production model will be an electric SUV

Lagonda All Terrain Concept Aston Martin electric SUV teased before Geneva

Lagonda All-Terrain Concept Is Aston Martin's First Electric SUV

Next month the automaker will take the wraps off the Lagonda All-Terrain Concept, an electric SUV.

Aston Martin has officially come out with a new teaser for the zero-emission Lagonda all-terrain concept vehicle. But the Aston Martin Lagonda Vision concept that debuted at last year's Geneva show featured a set of electric motors and solid-state batteries for a range of 400 miles on a charge. After kickstarting the Lagonda brand with the slick Vision Concept last year, Aston Martin will return to this year's show with the All-Terrain Concept. The British auto manufacturer will also display a new Vantage, DB11 AMR, and DBS Superleggera at the event.

'Historically Geneva has always been good for us - the buzz surrounding the stand past year when we revealed the Lagonda Vision Concept was truly remarkable - so it's fantastic to return to the scene of such great success with another world debut, ' said Andy Palmer, Aston Martin Lagonda president and group CEO.

If we examine the image a bit, we can see the front grille will be prominent and adorned with a gold band that will link it to the headlights.

"It will be like no other SUV to drive, so its looks have to reflect that new reality and to serve as pathfinder to a future in which the most desirable and prestigious automobiles still have a place", Aston Martin design boss Marek Reichman said of the design in 2018.

Aston Martin has said the Lagonda's electric platform will allow it to design ultra-luxury cars with huge interior space without the need to stretch the overall length much beyond that of its sports cars.

Though this incarnation of Lagonda is an all-new company, the brand itself has an extensive heritage. In the shadowy picture above, the SUV appears to have really large tires.

Aston Martin has also used the Lagonda name on some of its own models - most notably, perhaps, the chiselled 1974 Aston Martin Lagonda (below).

The 89th Geneva Motor Show runs from 5 March to 17 March 2019.
