Conversion work will be performed by Aston Martin Works, the company's in-house arm dedicated to restoring, selling and maintaining past models produced by the automaker.
A "radical idea (that) mitigates possible future restriction of classic vehicle usage" is how the brand describes it - which is asking rather a lot of the word "radical' given that it has been well beaten to the punch - nevertheless, it promises to do exactly what it says on the tin, and Aston Martin has wheeled out an electrified 1970 DB6 MkIIVolante as proof of concept".
While the vehicle is just a concept, Aston Martin Works will begin offering heritage EV conversions in the near future.
Let's say for a minute that you rather fancy the idea of going more environmentally-friendly by driving an EV, but have an inescapable obsession with classic Aston Martins.
Aston Martin will use the same battery electric technology that will soon appear in their first all-electric model, the Rapide E. The power unit is self-contained meaning that the original combustion engine can easily be refitted at a later date should the owner so choose.
"We are very aware of the environmental and social pressures that threaten to restrict the use of classic cars in the years to come", said Aston Martin head Andy Palmer. The original powertrain can be added back in after conversion if desired.
"We have been looking for some time to find a way of protecting our customers' long-term enjoyment of their cars".
Aston Martin has revealed a new package allowing owners to make their classics electric. Heritage EV conversions are expected to start in 2019.
