Review: Aston Martin RapidE

The RapidE will be the first Aston Martin to be completely electric, and will be manufactured in conjunction with Williams Advanced Engineering which also worked on the concept. The manufacturer will only build 155 cars all total. The 2019 Rapide E will have two electric motors good for a total of 610 horsepower and 700 pound-feet of torque. Its WLTP range target is said to be over 200 miles, and an hour of charging is good for 185 miles, using a regular 400-volt 50kW charger. Aston says the car’s 800V battery system can also be charged with a 100kW+ charger at a rate of over 5 miles per minute. It reaches 60 mph in less than 4 seconds, and the 50-70 mph overtaking time is just 1.5 seconds. Aston says these figures can also be reached with a battery that is less than fully charged.
