Mr. Bond, your car is here.
Aston Martin has revealed his first electric model, Rapide E.
The transmitter debuting at the Shanghai Motor Show will be featured in next year's installment of the "007" movie Franchise with Daniel Craig.
The Limited Edition model was created with the help of Williams Advanced Engineering, which is heavily involved in the Formula E racer series along with Formula 1
It is not a basic car but a retrofit of a conventional V12 drive model, and has a carbon fiber and kevlar-protected power steering unit and batteries that take up the space where the engine, transmission and tank are usually.
Two electric motors running the rear wheels pull their power from it and are rated at a combined 604 hp and 700 lb-ft of torque, both of which are more than the gasoline-fueled version boasts.
The battery pack is a relatively small 65 kilowatt-hour and has a range of less than 200 kilometers per charge on the US scale, while Tesla's top models have 100 kilowatt-hour packages and over 300 miles of range. The Rapide E is compatible with 800v fast charging systems, which, however, can fill up the packs as high as 310 miles per hour.
Aston Martin says Rapide E will be able to accelerate to 60 mph in 4 seconds, has an electronically limited 155 mph top speed and can handle the 13-kilometer Nurburgring race track at peak performance without overheating, which has been a bugaboo for high performance electric cars.
Exact pricing is only being revealed to legitimate customers interested in buying one of the 155 examples to be built, but is rumored to be around $ 300,000.
