Aston Martin and Letv signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on a research partnership for the development of connected electric vehicles. The partnership will see the two companies working together on research projects ranging from connected car technologies through to manufacturing consultation on new electric vehicles.
It is envisaged that these technologies could feature in the future Rapid E, the first-ever all-electric Aston Martin, which will be manufactured at the company’s UK headquarters in Gaydon, Warwickshire. The RapidE will draw on advanced technology solutions from leading global suppliers including those based in the UK and China.
Letv will bring their engineering and product development capabilities to help provide advanced connected car solutions to the RapidE. The new partnership will also begin a feasibility study focused on bringing Aston Martin consulting expertise in high quality manufacturing to support the production of future Letv electric vehicles.
