Aston Martin Lagonda presented the Lagonda All-Terrain Concept at the Geneva motor show today, continuing the journey with zero emission powertrain technologies in 2022 at a new state of the art facility in St Athan – Aston Martin Lagonda’s ‘Home of Electrification’.
Built around near-future technologies such as its advanced Battery Electric drivetrain, the Lagonda All-Terrain Concept is an ultra-stylish, supremely luxurious, fully electric emission-free vehicle. Its advanced lightweight design and electric powertrain mean it can be very roomy and will have outstanding performance and intelligent four-wheel-electric drive.
Over 70 Welsh employees have now joined the already 100-strong St Athan team, having spent the last two-and-a-half years at Aston Martin Lagonda’s Gaydon Headquarters. This core group of experts will train new employees at the St Athan plant.
They’re sure to be busy with the workforce steadily increasing during the first half of 2019, then expanding rapidly to more than 700 by the first quarter of 2020.
“A second production facility is a critical step in delivering our Second Century Plan. The St Athan facility will initially commence with the production of the Aston Martin DBX but will ultimately be a global centre of excellence for the production of luxury high performance EVs, including Lagonda.”
