Aston Martin working on electrified Cygent

Aston Martin Cygnet

An electric Aston Martin? Doesn’t sound like something many Aston Martin or even car enthusiasts would be excited about. Nonetheless, Aston Martin is considering an electric version for one of its models – and now it’s not an Aston Martin DBS or a Vantage.

According to CAR Magazine, Aston Martin is working on an electric-version of the Cygnet, which will be just an Aston Martin version of the upcoming electric Toyota/Scion iQ. The move will allow Aston Martin’s carbon footprint and corporate average fuel economy, which it has already done with the gasoline powered 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 $49,253 a pop. The Cygnet is only available to those who currently own an Aston.
