Aston Martin’s Lagonda Vision Concept teases an all-electric future

Roadshow
Welcome to the Geneva show or to be more precise the night before the Geneva motor show hence the blue shirt rather than the pink one. And we're on the Aston Martin Lagonda stand. And for once it's the second part of that name the Lagonda that is the important because this is the Lagonda vision concept and it is absolutely extraordinary. It is exactly what you want A concept to be. We'll start in the interior because I'm in the interior. It's a fully vegan interior. So all these materials in here we've got cashmere and wool and silk and blends thereof. And we've got some carbon fiber in here as well. It's an extraordinary look, very comfortable. It's so airy in here as well. We've got this amazing sort of glass house over the top. The windscreen that folds back up over here and is just, it's an amazing place to be. We have these amazing ceramic tiles here, some of which are active, so you've got the light panels or the air conditioning. So, it depends what's on. In terms of how these move around. We've got the little lights for the gesture controls, which also, the hair or voice-activated as well. It looks a bit like an ashtray. The interior has been designed with help of David Lindley, and then Henry Pool, who's done the interior with the materials, who's a suitmaker. He also makes a lot of the military Clothing, which is hence you've got the epaulettes up here so they are genuine, I suppose. Lagonda is going to be a zero emissions brand, so this is obviously electric and they've made the most of that. They've made the most of the interior spaces. The car overall is the same length as a Rolls-Royce Ghost, But they say it has the interior space of a Phantom Stretch. Andit feels like that but more. Because of the way that steering wheel up there can fold away completely because you have full autonomy coming. And that means you can swivel that driveer's seat around, and it can be just like your living room. They're saying, of course, because it's zero emissions, it's electric, it's going to have a range of 400 miles, which they are saying is a realistic range, so that's That's really impressive, it makes it totally useable. But when you're traveling along the motorway, full autonomous mode, it will be whisper quiet in here so, not just because they're electrics, but they are gonna be completely insulated in here. And then they can change the ambience with clutter speakers and that sort of thing. It should be Incredibly relaxing indeed. The ambience is hard to put your finger on. It's a bit 70s, a bit futuristic, so I suppose it's from the year 2070. And the exterior, the exterior we'll talk about that for a second, because it looks luxury and looks enormous, but, It also looks very sporty as well, which I like. And obviously the aerodynamics are a big part of this, because they want to maximize that range. So they don't want just a big box of a thing. But it looks every bit as imposing I think as a Phantom, but just in a different way. There's a bit of a Pink Panther machine in this I think That's why saying Logonda brand some see being relaunched we're expecting to see the first car in 2021 that's when they're promising it and the second Logando, Logonda two in 2023. Majority or the outcome we don't know but expect one to be some sort of bid luxury thing like this and one probably be some sort of SUV but it's very exciting. And I can't wait to see more from Lagonda. One other thing I meant to mention. These panels actually fold up when the doors open. So that you can walk into it and then sit down You don't have to duck down. They're saying this is like Concorde Class compared to the First Class. It's that extra step above. [BLANK_AUDIO]
