  • Aston Martin Valkyrie

Aston Martin is developing the RapidE, an electric version of the Rapide, and it's believed that the company is working on integrating a hybrid drivetrain into the future DBX SUV.

Palmer also stated Aston Martin plans to pump out more electrified vehicles in the coming decade.

This is the year by which the United Kingdom and France plan to prohibit the sale of new cars powered exclusively by an internal combustion engine.

Reasons We're Excited About the New Fitbit Ionic Smartwatch
Right now it's unclear what third-party options will be included, but we know at least Strava and AccuWeather will be in the mix. Mastercard says that its token services that support mobile transactions on other platforms will also be used with Fitbit Pay.

This announcement comes straight from Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer himself during an interview with The Financial Times. Palmer revealed that roughly one quarter of Aston Martin's lineup will have a battery option by the end of the 2020s.

It is clear that Aston Martin is on board the electric train right now. A smaller V6 would be a stark contrast to the current V8 and V12 engines that power Aston Martin's models.

The FT reports this statement means the company will buy battery cells from third-party manufacturers, but will produce battery packs (made up of multiple cells) and motors itself.

US Open player profile: Maria Sharapova
Even if she lost my bet in the French Open , I think she had more matches and more consistent this year playing, definitely, yes. Will you, as a fan, watch Simona play Maria? And we'll still be injured because now we're not playing enough.

The first all-electric Aston Martin will be the RapidE, a sleek four-seater due in 2019. There's also the hybrid Valkyrie hypercar in the works, an F1 auto for the road that's being designed by Aston Martin in conjunction with Red Bull Racing's Adrian Newey.

Meanwhile, Aston Martin also has plans to enter the SUV market for the first time, with a luxury high-riding vehicle created to take on the Bentley Bentayga and Maserati Levante, as well as upcoming SUVs from Lamborghini and Rolls-Royce. Demand for the DB11 and continued strong sales of the V12-powered Vanquish S and Vantage S models coincided with sell-out success for special-edition vehicles such as the Vanquish Zagato Coupe and continued development work on the Aston Martin Valkyrie hypercar in conjunction with Red Bull Advanced Technologies.
