Aston Martin Aims to Expand the DBX Lineup
Aston Martin wants to build on the success of the DBX by offering an entire fleet of dirivatives, and it all starts with the launch of a mild-hybrid DBX by the end of 2021.
This Model will be powered by a 3.0-liter straight-six that is paired with mild-hybrid technology and a nine-speed automatic transmission. No performance figues are available, but this model will be geared more toward economy.
In an inteview with Motor Trend, Aston Martin CEO, Tobias Moers, confirmed that a performance-oriented version of the DBX would follow the mild-hybrid, but it won't wear an AMR badge.
“We're not going to use AMR as a brand because there is no need for a sub-brand because Aston Martin is a performance brand.”
Moers has also admitted that Aston Martin needs “different body styles, more bang-on performance, a more aggressive style, and things like that.”
That means that Aston Martin could soon offer the DBX in the coupe-SUV body style akin to that of the BMW X6, Mercedes GLC Coupe, and Porsche Cayenne Coupe
On top of this Moers hinted that Aston Martin could use an even more luxrious model to take on the Bentleny Bentayga and Rolls-Royce Cullinan!
“You can think about being more luxurious, spacious, and you can think about being more sporty” - Tobias Moers, Aston Martin CEO
