Report: Aston Martin Cygnet axed because Toyota iQ will be discontinued

The marketing abomination known as the Aston Martin Cygnet, which was essentially a glorified Toyota iQ, was recently axed. According to a new report from AutoCarUK, the reason why the Cygnet was cancelled was because the former iQ is also on its way out.

“We stopped the Cygnet as Toyota itself will stop the iQ in 2014 and we don’t want to invest any more,” said Dr. Ulrich Bez, Aston’s current commander-in-chief.

Bez also claimed that he had hope for the Cygnet and even said he wanted a supercharged version. But as majority of us automobile lot have agreed, the concept just wasn’t sound.

“I think Aston did a good thing with the Cygnet and I’m disappointed it didn’t work out. It’s a great little car, particularly in London,” remarked Bez. “It will be a cult car in the future and will be well looked after.”

We’re not so sure about agreeing with him though…
