Aston Martin Lagonda gets green light


The Aston Martin Lagonda SUV looks set to go into production, according to CEO

Aston Martin CEO Ulrich Bez said at an event in Amsterdam that the Lagonda concept is going into production.

Bez described the all-wheel drive SUV Lagonda as "almost complete."

The Aston Martin Lagonda concept debuted at the Geneva auto show last year, to very bad reviews. The Lagonda was considered ugly by critics and the public, so much so that the project was soon abandoned.

Now, it seems that the Lagonda is a go again, maybe with a redesign that will take its look away from the concept vehicle's styling.

Bez also said the vehicle would likely have to be built with a partner. The Mercedes-Benz GL-based underpinnings of the concept could be utilised for the production model.

Official details will reportedly be released before the end of the year.
