Furthermore, the Rapide S was the first model revealed in last month  as a part of LeEcon and Aston Martin's partnership as well as a co-operation of LeTv Internet of the Vehicle (IOV) system. Now, the new electric concept car RapidE will be released as the first creation of this partnership between both companies after signing this memorandum.

Aston Martin has always topped the list of stylish luxury cars, but surprisingly it’s not as big as Ford and Nissan. However, the former has always exhibited quality in its offerings, which is more important than the quantity. Anyway, “Bringing the RapidE to market by 2018 is an important milestone for both companies” company said.
