    “This powerful collaboration combines Aston Martin’s 109 years of engineering mastery with the expertise of a fast-growing UK technology business. Working together with Britishvolt, I believe we can create new technologies to power benchmark-setting Aston Martin electric cars that will match our reputation for high performance and ultra-luxury with the highest standards of sustainability,” said Aston Martin CEO Tobias Moers.

    “Supplementing the close strategic relationship with our shareholder Mercedes-Benz AG, this partnership provides Aston Martin with additional access to technology and skills to broaden our electrification options. We are proud to be partnering with a UK-based, low-carbon battery manufacturer as part of our ambition to be a leading sustainable ultra-luxury business, with a commitment to the Science Based Targets initiative Net-Zero standard,” added the Aston Martin boss.

    Both companies signed a Memorandum of Understanding that supports the Gaydon-based luxury carmaker’s plans to launch its first battery-electric vehicle in 2025. The new battery technology born out of this partnership will see Aston Martin’s forthcoming electrified offering set new standards of repeatable on-track performance, charging time, and range, combined with engineering mastery, beautiful design, and extreme personalization.

    A joint research and development team from both Aston Martin and Britishvolt will design, develop, and industrialize battery packs, including bespoke modules and a battery management system.

    “For a prestigious marque such as Aston Martin, staying true to its world-renowned brand of ultra-luxury, high-performance vehicles, whilst transitioning to electrification, means insisting on customized, sustainable battery cell technology that pushes the boundaries of performance. Britishvolt is excited to be collaborating with Aston Martin, helping accelerate that switch to electrification — I believe we make formidable partners,” said Britishvolt CEO and Founder Orral Nadjari.

    “We are excited about the prospect of an all-electric Aston Martin powered by Britishvolt’s low carbon, sustainable battery cells. Collaboration like this is the only way forward for a successful energy transition,” Nadjari added.
