Aston Martin Cygnet EV, Out In 2013

2011 Aston Martin Cygnet

It seems that the British automaker Aston Martin is working hard in order to keep up with the increasing environmental pressures if we were to believe the latest rumors that tell us about a possible 2013 Cygnet EV model.

Basically, this car will be nothing more than a rebadged Toyota iQ EV and will feature an electric motor that generates 63 hp (64 PS / 47 kW) which will be powered by a 11 kWh lithium-ion battery. The car will be able to “sprint” to 60 mph in an agonizing 14 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 78 mph (125 km/h).

The good news is that the drivers will be able to use the car for up to 65 miles (105 km) before the battery is drained. To recharge it completely, you’ll have to wait about four hours but if you are in a hurry, in 15 minutes you’ll charge the battery to 80% of its capacity thanks to the rapid charging cycle.
