Aston Martin has confirmed plans to build a production version of the DBX concept.

Announced as part of a £200 ($306 / €273) million capital investment increase, the DBX will be a "luxury GT crossover" that will attract new customers and help drive future growth.

In a statement, Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer said "The DBX concept has generated interest far beyond our expectations. The additional investment announced today will allow us to realize the DBX and other new luxury vehicles that will form the strongest and most diverse portfolio in our history.”

The company didn't have much to say about the production model but previous reports have suggested the crossover could be built in the United States and go on sale in 2019.
