rapide1Just a few months after first speaking about the company’s plan to build an electric version of the Rapide, Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer unveiled in London the all-electric vehicle earlier today during a state visit from the President of China, Xi Jinping. The company didn’t reveal any new specification of the vehicle other than what was already talked about at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance earlier this summer. The vehicle is all-wheel-drive with over 200 miles of range, 800+ hp and is expected to retail for $200,000 to $250,000.

However Palmer did announce a new agreement with the Chinese investment group, ChinaEquity, to explore the development of a production version of the RapidE concept.

The electric version of the Rapide is expected to go in production in about 2 years.
