In place of the Rapide's V12 engine, the Rapide E is powered by a pair of electric motors that send 701 pound-feet of torque to the rear wheels.

The electric drivetrain is powered by an 800-volt, 65 kWh lithium ion battery pack that is good for "over 200 miles of range" according to Aston.

The system can be rapidly recharged in about 3 hours at a standard station or in under an hour at a 400 or 800-volt charging station.

The wheels have been redesigned from improved aerodynamics and the suspension tweaked to accommodate the weight of the batteries.

Carbon fiber and kevlar encase the lithium-ion battery pack, which now lives where the combustion engine used to reside.

The electric model features a 10-inch digital instrument cluster that monitors battery and powertrain performance and charge. A Rapide E app will allow for remote monitoring and control of the charging behavior when away from the car.
