Aston Martin is now a ‘darling for investors’

  Aston Martin is now a ‘darling for investors’ The British brand has grown faster than any other in the world Described as “a brand that Britain should be proud of,” the sports car firm’s pacy ascendancy, which saw it post its first profit in 10 years, sees it “roaring back onto the top ranks of luxury car makers,” said Brand Finance CEO David Haigh.

Aston Martin thinks traditional luxury cars are old-fashioned and archaic. It’s thus reviving the Lagonda brand to ‘change how people perceive luxury transport’. The radical Lagonda Vision Concept, revealed at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, demonstrates this bold new approach.

Aston Martin is proud to present Lagonda Vision Concept , marking the beginning of a new range of state of the art, emission-free luxury vehicles. Production is planned to start in 2021. Lagonda aims to be the world's first zero emission luxury brand.

‘The Lagonda Vision Concept is an incredibly bold design statement,’ said Aston Martin EVP and Chief Creative Officer, Marek Reichman. In the Lagonda Vision Concept , the batteries occupy the floor of the car .

It’s about time, frankly. It was way back in 2008 that Aston Martin announced plans to bring back Lagonda. Since then, we’ve had an SUV concept the company would rather we forgot about, plus the unusual 2015 Taraf – a homage to the radical 1970s Lagonda.

Now, things are finally underway. Aston is currently building a new plant in St Athan, Wales, to produce thousands of luxury Lagondas a year, with production scheduled to start in 2021. By 2023, there will be two Lagondas on sale for the first time in decades.

All will be fully electric. Lagonda will be the world’s first zero-emissions luxury brand, and its cars will also have a high degree of autonomy. The aim is to launch with Level Four self-driving capability, just one level down from truly ‘driverless’ cars.

By Christopher Friedmann. – on Mar 09th. In Motor Hub. Aston Martin unveiled its striking Lagonda Vision Concept at the Geneva Motor Show. The concept car comes four years after relaunching the Lagonda namesake at the 2014 iteration of the Swiss auto show, and it’s well worth the wait.

“For owners of true luxury cars, autonomy has existed for over a century, in a carbon-based form called a chauffeur,” said Aston Martin president and CEO, Dr Andy Palmer. ‘We imagine most Lagonda customers will choose to be driven, but whether by a person or a computer will be up to them.”

Aston is even hinting at solid state battery integration at some point in the car’s life – the same radical technology being pursued by Dyson’s start-up car division (whose chief engineer is Aston’s former head of engineering). The all-wheel-drive Lagonda will travel 400 miles between charges and be ready to recharge wirelessly, too.

Described as a ‘near future concept’, the Lagonda Vision is a genuine Geneva Motor Show surprise. A luxury limousine, it’s joined on the firm’s stand by two smaller design models, one showing a possible Lagonda Coupe, the other a Lagonda SUV.

It previews an all-electric future for the Lagonda sub-brand, with production scheduled to start in 2021.

It’s called the Lagonda Vision concept , and it’s one of the big surprises the Geneva Motor Show has had in store for us this year. As you can probably tell from the images and video below, the show car looks further into the future than most of what we see from Aston Martin .

It seems the limo will come first. Going after high-end models such as top-line Mercedes-Benz Maybach, Bentley Flying Spur and even the Rolls-Royce Ghost, the Lagonda Vision isn’t as large as those cars. Chief creative officer and executive vice president Marek Reichman likens it to Concorde, which was smaller than traditional jet liners, but even more luxurious.

It’s all because it’s electric. Because there’s no need to jam in a large engine, it doesn’t technically need a bonnet. The shape is thus how it looks distinctive and cleaves the air as efficiently possible. The batteries sit in the floor, says Reichman: “Everything above that line belongs to us”.

It’s been designed from the inside out. There’s enough room for four adults two metres tall or more (Reichman is a tall guy). The door openings can be massive, and extra panels in the roof lift up so you can – literally – walk into it.

Armchairs and self-driving tech

The Lagonda Vision doesn’t have mere seats, it has armchairs. With, stresses Reichman, proper armrests, because people use them to lower and lift themselves in and out of armchairs. The floor is uncluttered and space has been maximised.

Aston Martin says that the Lagonda Vision Concept is a preview of the design language that will find its way into production cars from as early as 2021, which would mean a spectacular-looking addition to traffic on our roads.

The Vision Concept showcases Lagonda design ingenuity. Both far shorter and lower than a new level of luxury both in look and feel while staying true to Lagonda ’s forward thinking vision ? The work of renowned English craftsman David Snowdon, has helped Aston Martin for this project.

Because it’s self-driving, the front seats rotate 180 degrees, and the steering wheel both retracts and can automatically switch from left to right, depending on who wants to drive.

It’s also trimmed unlike any other luxury car, using modern and traditional materials. Aston brought in famed furniture designer David Linley to advise on the interior. “Let’s use different materials, materials people won’t expect even in isolation, let alone together,” was his mantra. Hence the combination of carbon fibre, ceramics, cashmeres and silks.

A different kind of luxury

And wool seats, trimmed by Saville Row tailors Henry Pool. They created the patterns for the interior, meaning the seats are perfectly cut, like a fine suit.

“We believe people associate luxury in their cars with a certain traditional and even old-fashioned approach because, to date, that is all that’s been available to them” said Palmer.

“Lagonda exists to challenge that thinking and prove that being modern and luxurious are not mutually exclusive concepts.” The question is, are you ready for it, luxury car buyers?
