Electric vehicles and hybrids emphasize one thing above all, clean energy and economy, so it’s no wonder that at first most EVs were not exactly top of the line cars.
But then Tesla showed up and proved to the world that an electric car can also be luxurious or sporty, while still retaining the eco-friendly guise.
Now, Aston Martin and Bosch plan to release one of their most prized products, the DB9, as a plug-in hybrid. But their plans are not to make the DB9 Aston a cleaner vehicle per say, but rather to show that a hybrid can be a better performance vehicle than the standard version.
Aston Martin and Bosch plan to fit under the hood two electric motors, that, in combination with a 6.0 liter V12, will manage to produce 740 Hp. The increase in torque provided by the electric units will allow the DB9 to not only handle better, but also help the vehicle reach 100 km/h in just 3.7 seconds.
And if you desire to go all electric in this Aston Martin, you will find out that you won’t go too far, as it has a projected electric range of just 25 km. Enough to reach a gas station.
