Aston Martin used the official handover to the automaker of the ex-Ministry of Defense facility at St. Athan in South Wales to issue a new teaser image of the firm’s upcoming DBX sport utility model. Set to enter production in 2019, Aston’s first SUV will be assembled at St. Athan in what will be Aston’s second UK manufacturing plant located on what, like its current main hub in Gaydon, was formerly an RAF base. Unlike the original DBX Concept presented at the 2015 Geneva Auto Show, this latest DBX sketch reportedly shows the production model’s actual profile. While heavily stylized, the image clearly indicates the volume-build DBX will have a more extended roofline than the one seen on the earlier concept.

Aston Martin has made no public statement about the DBX since the show car was revealed and CEO Andy Palmer offered no additional details about the production variant. However, when the DBX Concept was unveiled, he said it was designed “to challenge the existing status quo in the high luxury GT segment” and set the stage for luxury GTs that would be “more practical, more family-friendly and more environmentally responsible.”
