Aston's Lagonda concept to pave way for radical crossover

Lagonda All Terrain Concept Aston Martin electric SUV teased before Geneva

It was back in 2018 when Aston Martin confirmed the return of the 'Lagonda' name. The Aston Martin spin-off won't be showcasing anything quite as future-focused as last year's Vision Concept, however - the vehicle on display will be providing a "first glimpse" of the brand's first production auto.

Aston Martin, which stopped building Lagonda cars in 1958, is reviving the name with the aim of breaking the duopoly held by Bentley and Rolls-Royce in the ultraluxury sedan market.

Electrified powertrains not only impact the driving experience of the auto, but give automakers the opportunity to completely re-think the layout of the auto as the smaller electric motors bring the same power we've come to expect from V8, V10, and V12 engines and shrinks it down into packages that are more easily integrated into human-centric vehicles.

The electric SUV will go into production in 2021 and will be followed by a sedan in 2022, as Aston Martin has previously hinted. Like the original Lagonda, it was an angular affair, dividing opinion but never relenting when it came to luxury or, indeed, power.

Aston Martin's Lagonda brand will unveil an all-new concept at March's Geneva Motor Show dubbed the All-Terrain Concept. The arm will be dedicated to ultra luxury all-electric vehicles. Gone was the traditional leather and wood; in its place, carbon-fiber shared space with ceramics, cashmere, and silk, together with hand-woven wool. Now, we're seeing the next stage in that journey. The SUV will be based on the same platform as the Lagonda luxury saloon that was revealed earlier. It borrows styling cues - and melodrama - from the Vision Concept, as well as an all-EV drivetrain. What's more? The vehicle by Lagonda will not only be handsome but also environment-friendly and boast autonomous driving tech. Beyond that, what the All-Terrain concept looks like is anyone's guess. It is an all-electric off-road concept and the first production model by Lagonda. That vehicle utilized solid-state batteries, a 640km range, and wireless conductive charging.

Now, ahead of this year's Geneva show, Palmer says the all-terrain concept "offers explicit clues" on what to expect for the first Lagonda model.
