Aston Martin Could Build a U.S. Plant for its New Crossover

When you think of Aston Martin, three things immediately come to mind: big V12s, stunning sports cars, and an exclusively British build. According to Automotive News Europe, though, all three are about to change. With new CEO Andy Palmer at the helm, Aston Martin hopes to boost production from 4,000 to 15,000 units per year. Those extra 11,000 units could come by way of a new SUV— one even possibly built in the U.S. With Mercedes-Benz making the move to Atlanta, and Nissan already calling Tennessee home, the southern U.S. is primed as an ideal candidate for the British marque’s new facility. Naturally, those states and others are making a plea to bring new jobs and new manufacturing to the South.

Though, Aston Martin could opt for a hybrid powertrain or a turbocharged engine, and the body is likely to be more in line with the current market of crossovers as opposed to the radical concept. We’ll know for sure at the latest in three to four years when it hits the market.
