Aston Martin’s new executive team has made a decision that will change the company forever. The next-generation DB11 and Vantage will be ditching their combustion engines in favor of all-electric setups. Automotive News Europe confirmed this with CEO Tobias Moers. “The succession of our traditional sports segment has to be full electric, no doubt,” he said.
Both vehicles are front-engined and were launched in 2016 and 2018, respectively, and are currently share a Mercedes-AMG twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8. The DB11 also comes powered by a twin-turbo 5.2-liter V12. We previously learned Aston Martin’s first all-electric model will arrive in 2025 or 2026, but only now do we know for sure it’ll either be the next DB11 or Vantage. Our money is on the DB11.
