Currently reading: How Aston Martin will work with Geely on new electric cars
British firm will look to car makers in the US and China to supply parts, including EV drive units and battery modules

Aston Martin is radically shaking up its supplier network for the development of its electric car platform, including sourcing parts from shareholder Geely to cut costs and hasten its arrival.
