It will have the generative power of 602 horsepower, somehow similar to the Aston Martin Rapide S, which is powered by gasoline engine. When it comes to the interior design, the company has replaced the previous analog display with a 10-inch digital screen that has the capability of showing the charge state, levels of power, real-time energy consumption and lots more.
A single charge will take you as far as 200 miles- Quite impressive!
It promises a real-wheel drive system with two electric motors mounted in the back of the back. Its advanced engineering partnership with Williams resulted to this 65kWh (800V) battery system, which is located where the transmission, V12 engine and the fuel storage tank would appear in the version that is powered by petrol. It also comes with an equipped little time charge of on-board charger for level two.
Aston Martin Rapide E comes with a top speed of 155 miles at every hour and has the capability to accelerate from a standstill of zero to 60 miles (0-100km/hr) in just 2 seconds. With its electric powertrain, it will be able to render three modes of driving. These include the GT, Sport and Sport+.

According to the automaker, Rapide E will be able to reach 200 miles after a single charge. Its battery can be charged at an incredible rate to three hundred miles range at every hour when plugged or used with a high speed EV charger outlet.
When you go beyond this Rapid E limited edition, the British automaker has decided to leave the electrified vehicles way up to its Lagonda brand. This is an assurance that the all-electric production version of the Lagonda SUV concept will be unveiled by 2023.
