A new partnership sparks the future of electric vehicles
“This partnership will represent a landmark collaboration between Aston Martin, a storied marque with a rich history, including winning at Le Mans and its current successes in F1, and the very best of Silicon Valley innovation and technology from Lucid,”Peter Rawlinson, CEO and CTO, Lucid
The power of partnership
In a landmark agreement worth more than $450 million, Lucid will supply Aston Martin with its state-of-the-art electric vehicle powertrain and battery systems. As part of the deal, Lucid becomes a shareholder in Aston Martin, which will also pay technology access fees to Lucid.
Shaping the future of Aston Martin
Aston Martin’s high-performance electrification strategy will be bolstered by Lucid’s proprietary electric powertrain technology, including its ultra-high performance twin motor drive unit, its renowned battery technology, and the revolutionary Wunderbox.
Lucid’s technological edge
Lucid’s innovative electric powertrain technologies will provide Aston Martin with enhanced capabilities. The twin motor rear drive unit combines prodigious power with torque vectoring, while the battery system offers higher power and more precise thermal logic.
The partnership illustrates Lucid’s commitment to sharing its leading technology to help Aston Martin achieve its goal of launching the first pure electric Aston Martin model in 2025. Earlier this year, Lucid introduced a derivative of its electric drive unit designed specifically for use in motorsports.
