It’s hard to guess what the final technical details will have a car after a partnership between two brands. Aston Martin partnered with Mercedes for any future Valhalla car. With access to all the technical specifications at reach, Aston Martin hasn’t yet decided what platforms and drive units to use for its own cars.
The Aston Martin Valhalla has a Mercedes powertrain now, so the Valhalla will probably be ready for sale in the second half of 2023. The new concept promises to have a car with breathtaking technology, starting with combustion engines and an electrified drivetrain.
There weren’t yet released any certain details about the engine, but there it’s a fact that there won’t be a V6 nor a V8. Their options were wide: a different range of combustion, hybrid or electric engine, or powertrain. The decision has been made. The only certain thing so far is that they will be re-assessing the supercar with a different, but electrified drivetrain.
However, such an important announcement instantly got the interest of customers who had already begun to place orders for the 2023 Aston Martin Valhalla. The next plans for the partnership will result in electrifying everything by 2030. There are also promises of a DBX PHEV.
Mercedes first took a 5% stake in Aston Martin firm in 2013 and announced last year investing up to 20% by 2023. This means more for Aston Martin – a plug-in hybrid DBX by 2024, two additional SUV derivates of SUV inbound arriving in Q3 and Q2. The future is promising.
