Lagonda has played different roles within Aston Martin over the decades, ever since the once-standalone British marque was folded into its parent company.

Aston Martin has announced that it will debut the new Lagonda All-Terrain Concept at next month's Geneva Motor Show. The auto, of course, will also come with the carmaker's new fully-electric powertrain technologies. Like the original Lagonda, it was an angular affair, dividing opinion but never relenting when it came to luxury or, indeed, power.

Having made a surprise return to the world stage at the Geneva Motor Show previous year, Lagonda will be back at the 2019 running of the event. That reviewed a possible all-electric fastback sedan, billed as a "near future study" of how modern luxury might distinguish itself in the age of EVs.

At the time, Aston Martin execs promised production cars as varied as sedans, coupes, and SUVs.

Marek Reichman, Aston Martin EVP and chief creative officer, said of the Lagonda Vision Concept that, "the Lagonda SUV will retain the boldness of the Vision Concept".

Specifications of the All-Terrain Concept aren't known at this point.

The first model Lagonda will put into production, the All-Terrain Concept bears the bold hallmarks of the Vision Concept. A range figure of 400 miles was quoted by Aston, alongside a rapid wireless charge of the battery pack in just 15 minutes.

While not much is known yet about the powertrain, we do know that both these electric vehicles will feature 4 motors on each corner for an effective 4-wheel drive powertrain.

The Lagonda brand will be dedicated to radically styled, all-electric vehicles once it comes on stream in 2021 and the All-Terrain Concept paves the way for the first production model, a crossover that also takes some inspiration from last year's Vision Concept.

'Historically Geneva has always been good for us - the buzz surrounding the stand a year ago when we revealed the Lagonda Vision Concept was truly remarkable - so it's fantastic to return to the scene of such great success with another world debut, ' said Andy Palmer, Aston Martin Lagonda president and group CEO.
