During the production of the Aston, Martin Rapide is 2019, Aston Martin has confirmed that only 155 of this rapidE would be made, as we should definitely not expect them to be cheap. Production has been proposed to take place at the Aston Martin EV focused St Athan site in Wales, the same location where the Aston Martin all electric Lagonda cars were manufactured. We have been told that delivery would be made towards the tail of 2019, and a price has not yet been fixed but an estimate of about $200,000 has been given. The Williams advanced engineering who is also known as the R & D and consultancy arm of the F1 arm team would also be involved in the buildup of this prototype testing four-footed beast of a machine. According to the company statement, they said that customers would be an extended part of the ongoing project as they would have their say in what should and shouldn’t be in this car. and with their comments and driving providing invaluable steam of feedback that will shape and help improve future EVs.

The Aston Martin Rapide would be powered with a 65kW battery that is capable of a superfast 800V power transfer. Diverse from the taycan, which makes use of a skateboard style battery layout. In the rapide E, the usual 6.0 litre, V12 gearbox and the fuel tank are removed and replaced with a 5600-lithium ion cylindrical cells, with two rear-mounted electric motors. The two rear-mounted electric motors both drives through a limited slip differential. The Rapide E would also feature a revised suspension to cope with its new weight. The Rapide E would be built to be more like an ice car adaptation than a bespoke, ground up EV car. The power of the Rapide E sports car is also up by 50bhp on the original V12 you would usually find in most cars. The power of the Rapide E is about 601bhp, while the torque weight is about 700lb ft, which is more than 240lb ft of the original car. Also, the batteries of the Rapide E would be supplied by Hyperbat limited, which is a new joint venture between WAE and the Unipart Manufacturing group.

A lot of people are just so eager to get their hands on this ridiculously expensive sports car. This sports car is powered by an 800-volt battery system with 65kWh, as well as it should be able to travel up to 200 miles on a single charge. And turns head when it stops charging meaning regardless of the charge it would deliver up to the 200 miles. With both teams at Gaydon and Williams working closely with one another on a battery cooling system that would deliver a minimum level of performance no matter the temperatures.

Considering the proposed charging scheme of the Aston Martin Rapide, when the Aston Martin Rapide is charged for an hour on a 400V and 50kW charger, it was predicted that it should be able to result in a 185 miles of electric range, and when it’s hooked up to an 800V and 100kW charger,  it resulted in almost times two of the distance with the other charger, that is 310 miles. And when an even more powerful charger is used a higher value for the distance can be attainable. The average home charger for this sports car is around 7kW

Apart from its performance capabilities, the Aston Martin Rapide body framework has been designed in a way to make it aerodynamic body optimized to ensure that it fulfils and performs up to its maximum potential. This sports car would also feature an aerodynamic wheel which would also help to ensure the car moves with its intended stamina and aerodynamic optimization.

The all-new Aston Martin sports car has been planned to replace the 522bhp, 6.0 litre, V12 engine of the Aston Martin Rapide S. The Aston Martin Rapide would have at least an 800V battery architecture, with a 65kW capacity.

He continued that he has a career in automotive and he is proud to announce to the public and everyone that the car industry is leading the way in finding a long-term solution and reducing the amount of harmful emission to the atmosphere. He also commended Williams advance engineering for their cooperation in making his dream as a CEO of Aston Martin to bring the rapidE program to reality. And as rapidE is their first all-electric production model, it would enable them to fast track their knowledge and assist them in ensuring that the character and high-performance capabilities of the future EV model and enhance the unique qualities found in all Aston Martin as we know them today.

Final Thought

It was in 2015, that Aston Martin was reported to have been working on an all-electric version of the Rapide E and that this sports car would be fully completed and would be available in the market at the fourth quarter of 2019. Although since the development isn’t complete now, some of the specifications may change probably due to costing or choice of the customers, basically we have an explanation of what the Rapide E should look like based on the proposed prototype that was given to us by Aston Martin themselves. So, we just have to sit back, cross out legs and wait for this ravaging four-footed beast of a machine to be fully developed so we can quickly buy out of the limited quantity that has been said would be produced by this British car brand.
