Don’t Wait Too Long to Buy a New Aston Martin Vantage or DB11

Aston Martin plans mass electrification of its models by 2030, and it starts in 2025

LISTEN 02:43

Quite recently, we talked about the 2022 revisions for the Aston Martin DB11, which aim to simplify the model’s lineup, in order to make room for a future EV version. With that being said, we now know with certainty that Aston Martin’s internal combustion engine days are numbered, as the next-generation Vantage and DB11 will be fully electric. Tobias Moers – Aston Martin CEO – confirmed it in an interview with Automotive News Europe. "The succession of our traditional sports segment has to be full electric, no doubt", Moers said.

The first of the three planned EVs will debut in 2025. It is unclear yet whether it will be the next-generation Vantage, the DB11, or something else. A new fully electric DBX isn’t out of the question either. The good news is, there are still a couple of more years in which you can get a V-8 or a V-12-powered Aston Martin.

The transition towards a fully electric Aston Martin lineup will not be as sudden, however, as a plug-in hybrid version of the DBX will come out before that. In addition, a mid-engine PHEV, positioned under the Valkyrie and the Valhalla. Some reports indicate its design will be inspired by the Vanquish Vision concept.

Aston Martin will expand its partnership with Mercedes in order to use its EV drivetrain components. Our predictions for an Aston Martin PHEV, based around the AMG V-8 may actually happen. The expected range will be around 372 miles (600 km). Moers assures us that, despite the borrowed components, Aston Martin’s future lineup will retain its character.

The recently-unveiled Valhalla is a testimony to that, as it features a mid-mounted 4.0-liter twin-turbo AMG V-8 coupled to an electric motor, for a combined output of 937 horsepower (699 kilowatts) and 738 pound-feet (1,000 Nm).

That said, the FHEV hypercar has an electric range of just 9 miles (15 km).

2022 Aston Martin Valhalla specifications
Engine 4.0-liter, twin-turbo V-8
Power 937 HP
Torque 737 LB-FT
0 to 60 mph 2.5 seconds
Top Speed 217 mph
Nurburgring lap time 6:30

According to a shareholder report from March 2021, all Aston Martin models will be electrified by 2030, with 50-percent of them being all-electric, 45-percent featuring some sort of hybrid powertrain, and the remaining five-percent being track-only models. In any case, this is the last bell to get our hands on Aston Martin’s V-8 and V-12-powered models, since apparently, they won’t be around for much longer; at least not as we know them.

Born in 1992, I come from a family of motoring enthusiasts. My passion for cars was awoken at the age of six, when I saw a Lamborghini Diablo SV in a magazine. After high school I earned a master’s degree in marketing and a Master of Arts in Media and Communications. Over the years, I’ve practiced and become skilled in precision driving and to date have test driven more than 250 cars across the globe. Over the years, I’ve picked up basic mechanical knowledge and have even taken part in the restoration of a 1964 Jaguar E-Type and an Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint. Lately, I’ve taken a fancy to automotive photography, and while modern cars are my primary passion, I also have a love for Asian Martial Arts, swimming, war history, craft beer, historical weapons, and car restoration. In time, I plan my own classic car restoration and hope to earn my racing certificate, after which I expect to establish my own racing team.  Read full bio
