Aston Martin is to preview the second model in its reborn Lagonda range with the All-Terrain Concept at the upcoming Geneva motor show

The SUV, which will rival the Rolls-Royce Cullinan, follows the reveal of the Lagonda Vision saloon concept shown at Geneva last year, when Lagonda was relaunched as the maker of high-tech luxury cars that feature all-electric power and arresting design making use of EV packaging advantages.

The SUV is understood to be closely related to the saloon in its footprint, architecture, interior and chassis and powertrain technology, as part of Aston boss Andy Palmer’s ‘carry over, carry across’ methodology that ensures models share as many components as possible to reduce development costs. 

While Aston didn’t confirm the precise technical details of last year’s saloon concept, it’s understood each axle gets its own electric motor for four-wheel drive. A range figure of 400 miles was quoted by Aston, alongside a rapid wireless charge of the battery pack in just 15 minutes. The SUV would use this set-up, too. 

Aston has released a darkened preview image of the front of the car that shows the clear visual link to the previous saloon concept and a stance and proportions that hints at a sleek body and dramatic profile, inspiring our artist’s impression. 

The production version is set to beat the Lagonda saloon to market in 2021, and both models will be built alongside the DBX at Aston’s new St Athan plant in Wales. 

The Lagonda SUV will be the sixth of the seven cars Aston has shown or previewed that will be the core models of its Second Century plan. The DB11, Vantage and DBS Superleggera are already on sale, the DBX SUV will be revealed for production later this year, and now both Lagonda models will be previewed. 

That just leaves the Vanquish, a mid-engined supercar that will rival the likes of the McLaren 720S and Ferrari 488 GTB in 2020.

As beautiful as the...

...exterior was of the Lagonda concept, the look of the interior had me scratching my head! The interior design, IMHO, may have been more striking if their choice of materials where more in keeping with the class of vehicles that they see as competition, maybe? That being said, an exterior like these Lagonda concepts may not mate or mix as easily with an interior like that of the Cullian.

Will need to come with a warning

"A range figure of 400 miles .... alongside a rapid wireless charge of the battery pack in just 15 minutes."   I just don't see how this possible, even wired chargers get nowhere near this.

But if true I'd advise anyone with a pace maker not to go within half-a-mile during those 15 minutes!
