Aston Martin to continue manufacturing ICE cars beyond 2030

Despite past promises to convert to an all-electric lineup by 2030, Aston Martin is currently taking a different approach under the leadership of Executive Chairman Lawrence Stroll. Stroll has declared that the renowned luxury manufacturer will continue to provide internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles long into the 2030s.

Aston Martin published a statement in April 2022, indicating that new models with internal combustion engines will be phased out by 2030. At the time, the firm planned to offer its first electric vehicle as early as 2025, followed by its first plug-in hybrid model in 2024.

"Aston customers have told dealers that they want 'sounds and smells' and favour ICE technology for their cars", according to Stroll who spoke to Autocar.

The automaker has created a new EV platform capable of supporting four types of EVs: a grand tourer, an SUV, a crossover, and a mid-engined supercar.

However, some of the future combustion-powered Astons will be electrified. The company is now investing extensively in plug-in hybrid technology for its V-8 and V-12 engines. This will help it fulfil more strict emission requirements while also improving the performance of its goods.

Stroll highlighted the company's commitment to manufacturing ICE vehicles for as long as rules allow, indicating confidence in long-term demand, particularly for plug-in hybrids. Despite the ever-changing landscape of automotive technology, Aston Martin is dedicated to providing the iconic sounds and sensations that characterize the essence of premium sports vehicles for future generations.
