It doesn’t take a soothsayer to realize that petroleum-based vehicles are headed the way of the dodo. Even the biggest skeptics and naysayers are starting to come to terms with this. If you happen to be one of the aforementioned group, we’ve got some more bad news for you. Lauded British manufacturer Aston Martin has just announced their first all-electric car: a super sedan called the RapidE.

That’s right; one of James Bond’s favorite car companies is taking a major leap forward into future technologies with the development of an entirely electric vehicle. Now, it’s not a wide release – as only 155 examples are to be made – but it’s a landmark in the company’s history nonetheless. With a body based on the brand’s upcoming Rapide AMR, the powertrain of these cars is to be developed alongside the technology division of Williams F1, Williams Advanced Engineering. There’s little other information out there about this release. Still, we’ll be looking forward to more information with bated breath.
