For Aston Martin drivers – and the owners of all sorts of other sports cars too – there’s nothing quite like the feel and sound of an internal combustion engine at full revs.

So perhaps it’s not surprising that the luxury British marque is delaying the launch of its first fully electric car.

Aston Martin had unveiled plans for ‘the world’s most thrilling and highly desirable electric performance cars’ last year. But, while electric vehicles can be just as nippy as their petrol or diesel equivalents, the one thing they really don’t do is roar.

Aston Martin has pushed back the release of the battery-powered vehicle from 2025 to 2026 after admitting it was not quite as desirable as imagined.

Executive chairman Lawrence Stroll said: ‘Demand, certainly at an Aston Martin price point, is not what we thought it was going to be two years ago.’
