Aston Martin Lagonda’s second UK manufacturing plant has started with the production of cars and the first cars to be built in the plant are the pre-production models of automaker’s first SUV, the DBX.
According to the earlier statements by the company, the DBX will be unveiled by the end of 2019 and the launch of the car will follow.
Real world testing of the DBX has already begun in the Welsh countryside and continues in full swing. Over the last few months, DBX has been put through its paces in all environments – from the Arctic Circle, to the unique challenge of the Nürburgring Nordschleife.
“This is an exciting time for Aston Martin Lagonda. Our second luxury manufacturing facility is now producing cars and is ready to go into full production in H1 2020. Our facilities and manufacturing teams, led by VP and Chief Manufacturing Operations Officer Keith Stanton have done an outstanding job in getting the factory ready almost a year before full production starts, on time and on budget.”, Aston Martin Lagonda President and Group Chief Executive Officer, Andy Palmer said.
