Improved pre-tax profits for Aston Martin

Aston Martin DBX design signed off for 2019 launch

While some new Aston Martin cars are set to receive Mercedes-AMG produced 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engines as a result of the technology partnership between Aston and Daimler, Palmer suggested that the firm's electric powertrain would be developed in house.

The wealthy vehicle buyers of the next decade will be more inclined to buy electric, according to several reports and predictions we've read, because younger people tend to be more open to new and different technologies over and above tech that has been seen and done by dozens of generations past.

Aston Martin's entire new auto lineup will be powered by hybrid electric engines within a decade, and the company's first sports utility vehicle will arrive as soon as 2019. According to the FT, the Aston announcement isn't quite the same as this - hybrid powertrains will be optional on every model but non-hybrid cars will continue on sale.

Speaking to the Financial Times, Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer said, "We will be 100 percent hybrid by the middle of the 2020s".

India beats Sri Lanka
Much to their surprise, two players who did not feature in the scheme of things until Thursday evening rewarded them. Dananjaya unfurled a swing of wrong 'uns and the batsmen failed to read and being impressive on the time of match.

Aston Martin is taking the fight to Ferrari and McLaren with a unique sports vehicle offering all its own, positioned just underneath the high-horsepower Valkyrie. Palmer likened EVs to Aston Martin's V12, calling them a "core technology" that needs to be kept inside the company. That's why we make our own V12 engines.

The first all-electric Aston Martin will be the RapidE, which is due in 2019.

One of the first mass-market hybrids from Aston Martin will be its DBX SUV. Such a move is quickly becoming necessary for low-volume manufacturers of high-performance cars as they look to offer more performance to consumers while adhering to increasingly strict fuel economy and emissions standards.
