Called Project ELEVATION, the initiative is led by Aston Martin and made up of six partners, the aim of which is to develop a lightweight 800V battery pack and twin front electric motors for a BEV platform that can be used across supercars and SUVs.

APC has invested funds of over 1.4B GBP in the automotive industry since its inception over 10 years ago, the aim to deliver on the nation’s net zero ambition. Aston Martin will launch their first all electric vehicle in 2025 with the brand offering a fully electrified range by 2030!
