In fact, the first glimpse of the All-Terrain Concept was also given in May 2018 in the form of a few sketches.

Aston Martin said previous year it will pitch Lagonda as a more modern equivalent of Rolls-Royce to attract a new type of customer from markets such as China.

This is the same facility where the upcoming Aston Martin DBX SUV will be manufactured. The Lagonda All-Terrain Concept will share its platform and drivetrain with the Lagonda Vision Concept sedan which made its debut at the Geneva International Motor Show previous year. Serving as their ultra-luxury division exclusively powered by electricity, the Lagonda brand is a step-up in opulence that comes with zero-emissions, more stylish designs and self-driving capability. For now, however, the All-Terrain Concept will be free to emulate last year's Vision and attempt to steal the show in Switzerland. It also allows Aston to develop electric cars while keeping its high-performance gasoline cars separate. The arm will be dedicated to ultra luxury all-electric vehicles.

Expect lots of carbon fibre details and exquisite leatherwork.

News about the new electric luxury SUV was accompanied by a single teaser image that reveals a low, wide silhouette punctuated by a wide grin of a fascia. It will be the first Lagonda electric vehicle to go into production.

The concept (teased above) provides "explicit clues" to the look of the company's first 21st century model, according to chief executive officer Andy Palmer. Because like that Vision Concept, this All-Terrain is a fully-electric luxury auto. A range figure of 400 miles was quoted by Aston, alongside a rapid wireless charge of the battery pack in just 15 minutes.

'Historically Geneva has always been good for us - the buzz surrounding the stand a year ago when we revealed the Lagonda Vision Concept was truly remarkable - so it's fantastic to return to the scene of such great success with another world debut, ' said Andy Palmer, Aston Martin Lagonda president and group CEO.
