Aston Martin Lagonda President & Group CEO, Dr Andy Palmer said: “I can’t emphasise enough how incredibly exciting and significant DBX is for Aston Martin. Through its development alone, this beautiful SUV has already taken the company into new territories and in inspiring directions. DBX also marks a key moment in the delivery of the third and final phase of our Second Century Plan, not only representing the promised expansion of our portfolio but also signaling the start of production at Aston Martin’s second manufacturing plant. We have both delivered this model through our expertise, but also by garnering invaluable experience and knowledge from external counsel, including our Female Advisory Board. This is a real landmark for this great British brand and I promise that DBX will reward all who experience it in their everyday lives.”

The company is expected to launch the SUV in India in the following months, with an expected price tag of Rs 1.46 crore (Ex-showroom). It will be pitted against the Bentley Bentayga, the Lamborghini Urus and the upcoming Ferrari Purosangue, among others.
