The British firm Aston Martin would be developing a new hybrid system through the use of a six-cylinder engine.

Aston Martin could be developing a 6-cylinder hybrid line

Aston Martin DBX

The future passes through electrification . We can see it in Formula 1, which as of 2014 implemented a hybrid system in all single-seaters, or in Formula E, the maximum category of electric single-seaters. The electric motors do not suffer delay when delivering all the torque, and that makes it very valuable in hybrid systems.

Aston Martin could join the club of supercar manufacturers that use the power Electric to take their models to a new level, as McLaren, Ferrari, Porsche and Mercedes have already done. The British firm would bet to replace the V8 propeller of Mercedes-AMG origin by a six-cylinder in line with electric support.

According to sources close to the British , the first model that could take advantage of this new technology would be the Aston Martin DBX, its first SUV. This type of systems, in addition to providing great power from the first moment we step on the accelerator, are more beneficial for the environment, allowing the brand to comply with emissions regulations, and in turn, reducing consumption of the vehicle.

In turn, it is likely that This new Aston Martin project is being developed under the Rapide E program. According to the signature from the firm, the experience is not entirely premium yet, so it would still take to reach the final consumer. As a result, the British will have to continue using the turbocharged 4-liter Mercedes-AMG V8 engine used by models such as DB11 and Vantage.

A well implemented hybrid system, like the one we can see in models like the McLaren P1, the Ferrari LaFerrari or the Mercedes-AMG One, are very beneficial for immediate power delivery , bringing the user closer, even more, to the experience that can be achieved in a WEC vehicle or in a Formula 1.
