Aston Martin Lagonda president and group chief executive Andy Palmer said: “We see no limits for Lagonda."
“It will be a brand for the restless, for those who are anything but happy with the status quo. It will produce cars that exploit technology, without being obsessed with it for its own sake,” he said.
“And it will enable Lagonda to redefine the concept of luxury within the automotive and other spheres.”
Powertrain specifications remain under wraps, though it uses batteries underneath the floor to maximise cabin space, and features an all-wheel driveline pointing to two, or four, electric motors.
It has been confirmed that the Lagonda SUV will share elements with Aston Martin’s forthcoming DBX, and will be produced on the same production line in Wales.
Batteries will be placed underneath the floor to maximise cabin space.
Aston Martin says that floor-mounted batteries increase stiffness, allowing for rear-hinged doors as carried over from the Vision Concept.
The All-Terrain also features a rear shelf that slides out from the floor to be used as a platform for passengers “to perch on” as well as rotatable front seats for when the car is in fully autonomous mode.
“We wanted the technology in the Lagonda All-Terrain Concept to bring a sense of personality to the vehicle,” said Aston Martin executive vice-president and chief creative officer Marek Reichman.
“Just as with the materials and the exterior design, the technology should be warm and involving rather than cold and impersonal. This is the future and it should be something that people are inspired and delighted by rather than perplexed and frightened by.”
