Aston Martin has been promising and promising us an all electric version of the Rapide saloon car, which was and still is the company’s only four door model. The Rapide E has been on the cards since as early as 2015, with the original plan to make 155 of them for an undisclosed price.

This week, car magazine Autocar has been told from a source close to Aston Martin that the Rapide E has now “become a research project used to further Aston’s broader electrification programme.”

The original specs of the Rapide E were 604bhp, with a top speed of 155 mph and 200 miles of range.
