Aston Martin cars are regarded as British cultural icons, they are luxurious, elegant, and sporty. Owning an Aston Martin has always been a privilege, and there are countless reasons why the desire to own one of these cars has remained so high over the years. One of the main reasons for this is the production process, where the location of where Aston Martin cars are made is very important.
About the brand
Aston Martin Lagonda is one of the few independent manufacturers in the automobile market, their headquarters are located in Gaydon, Warwickshire, England, United Kingdom, and their main focus had always been on luxury sports cars, however, back in 2019, the British marque presented the Aston Martin DBX, their first SUV.
The British manufacturer was founded in 1913 by Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford and produced their first car in March 1915.
Today, the company remains one of the luxury icons in the car industry, as many have heard, Daimler AG owns a small percentage of the British marque, and have an agreement to supply Mercedes-Benz technology and engines to Aston Martin, this has led to a more solid line-up and a fractious partnership that has benefited both companies.
The brand has plans to launch its first electric vehicles by 2025, both sports cars and SUVs, and that will serve as a starting point to transition into the EV market. And with the recently entrance of Geely Holding into the company, it will help the transition.
Where are Aston Martin vehicles made?
As mentioned above, Aston Martin has remained desirable for a while, and some of its reasons are found in the production process.
First of all, Aston Martin cars are all handmade, anyone that values quality and exclusivity knows that hand-built cars are becoming more scarce in today’s mass market, and when spending considerable amounts of money on a vehicle you want it to feel more special than the rest.
And then, there’s the fact that except the DBX, all Aston Martin cars are made in the Gaydon village of Warwickshire, England.
The DBX is produced in the St. Athan village of Wales, England, a new facility built especially for their first SUV.
The point is, all Aston Martin cars are made in England, and the plans for the future models are to keep the production there as it adds value and tradition to the brand.
As an independent manufacturer, they don’t have the production capacity as some of their main competitors, so their line-up is limited, nevertheless, it’s well-positioned. These are all the models you can find today:
- Aston Martin DB11
- Aston Martin DBS Superleggera
- Aston Martin DBX
- Aston Martin Vantage
- Aston Martin Valkyrie
Aston Martin has plans to launch their new flagship model, the Valhalla, a supercar with over 900 hp that will serve as a halo model to prove what the company is capable of.
Their only SUV, the DBX is likely to get a facelift for a 2022 model, while there are some reports that we may get a hotter version that may employ a V12 engine to compete against the Rolls-Royce Cullinan and the Bentley Bentayga Speed.
