Obviously, someone somewhere thinks that this is undoubtedly a brilliant idea – an Aston Martin all-electric car. Only thing is, it’s not going to be very fast, nor very big.

Reports say the rumour mill has it that the company is planning an EV version of its tiny Cygnet, which of course will essentially be a tarted up electric version of the Toyota iQ, which the standard Cygnet is based on. All in the name of being seen as green, yes, and a case of ‘since everyone’s doing it, why shouldn’t we?’ Still, you can imagine there’ll be takers. There always are.
