The Aston Martin DBX, last Summer, went into production. Moreover, then just a year later, it’s already going to actually account for more than half of the brand’s global sales. The key to Aston’s success and future stability is the SUV. Moreover, the automaker’s CEO Tobias Moers is very aware of that fact. Recently, he did admit to a number of additional DBX derivatives are coming in the next three years to keep the demand high.
Aston Martin DBX New Version Released Before the Year’s End
Moers has, in fact, confirmed that the first new version is going to be releasing before the year’s end. It will be in the form of a mild-hybrid DBX. Moreover, it will use an electrified 3.0-liter turbocharged straight-six engine mating to a nine-speed automatic gearbox. It will channel power to all four wheels.
Next year, the DBX family will be expanding with the addition of a performance-oriented model. In fact, it won’t be an AMR-branding vehicle, though, as “we’re not going to use AMR as a brand. That is because there is no need for a sub-brand because the Aston Martin is, in fact, a performance brand.” Moreover, the powertrain range is going to be complementing with a plug-in hybrid version in 2023. It uses a Mercedes-Benz AMG-sourced V8 engine.
However, there won’t be just new powertrain options, as Moers has said the Aston Martin needs “different body styles, stronger performance, a more aggressive body style, things like that.” If we have to translate the collective language, Moers is more than likely referring to a possible “coupe” version of the DBX. As well as additional body styles. Then, most likely, we are, therefore, seeing the new additions in 2023 and 2024.
In total, Aston Martin is going to offer its customers five or six DBX versions by 2024. Also, there are rumors of a seven-seat model. In fact, Moers is hinting about it by saying “you can think about being more luxurious, spacious, and also you can think about being more sporty.” With more than 1,500 deliveries in about 12 months, there is a slew of additional variants coming. The DBX is surely going to remain the brand’s most significant model definitely in terms of sales.
