Originally, the Aston Martin Cygnet was only planned for the European market. Reports now suggest that the rebadged Toyota iQ minicar will be coming to the United States in 2012 – but that’s not all.
Besides the regular 1.3L gasoline engine based Cygnet, an electric-version with a 60-mile range will arrive sometime in 2013.
Same purchasing rules apply so you’ll need to already own an Aston and pay an extra $35,000 for the gasoline Cygnet.
Refresher: Based on the Toyota iQ, the Aston Martin Cygnet will be powered by a 1.3L engine making 97-hp, allowing it to hit a top speed of 105 mph. Aston Martin will make around 2,000 units and will sell them for around £20,000 (about $35,000 USD) a pop. The Cygnet is only available to those who currently own an Aston.
