Aston Martin is preparing to produce its first ever crossover called DBX. It will try to challenge to the Bentley Bentayga and Lamborghini Urus.
The company starts assembling the model in the fourth quarter of 2019 at a new plant in South Wales. This plant was built in place of hangars owned by the British Ministry of Defense, which Aston Martin bought.
The carmaker’s second production site, apart from the DBX crossover production, will also be aimed at assembling electrified models and the future Lagonda family. This marque, according to Aston Martin, is to become the world’s first luxury electric brand.
The manufaturer will put the first DBS models to production in the fourth quarter of next year. To this end, they will install the new assembly lines and expand the staff from the current 100 people to more than 700 by 2020.
