Aston Martin said that this signifies the start of their extensive testing programme, begining with Wales as a nod to Aston Martins’ new St Athan production facility in the Vale of Glamorgan.
According to the manufacturer; the DBX requires a “dedicated test programme”. One that features new processes, procedures and standards that will reflect its all-purpose role.
Cheif Engineer Matt Becker said: “As an engineer, it’s genuinely exciting to get a feel for the car you’re working to create. DBX is a very different kind of Aston Martin, but we will be testing it in all conditions and across all terrains to ensure it delivers a driving experience worthy of the wings badge.”
The DBX is scheduled to be unveiled in the last quarter of 2019 being built at Aston Martin Lagonda’s St Athan facility.
Andy Palmer, Aston Martin Lagonda president and chief executive officer, said: “Seeing a DBX development prototype in action is a momentous chapter in the story of our first SUV, for it is the moment it really comes alive.”
