First signs of recovery for Aston Martin. The British carmaker has failed to completely reverse the situation of economic red, but it has still managed to reduce losses compared to the first six months of 2020: from January to June of this year the funds of the company led by Lawrence Stroll recorded a negative 91 million pounds, about a third of the loss of over £ 227 million in the same period last year.
Aston Martin DB11 and Vantage, end of an era
Much of the credit for this positive result recorded by Aston Martin goes to the DBX SUV, whose sales drove the British brand in the first half of 2021. The sports crossover, which went into production just over a year ago, accounted for more than 50% of the British brand’s overall sales. “The demand we have for our products, our new range and the quality of the team we have employed in all sectors gives me great confidence in our continued success”, said Lawrence Stroll, the Canadian tycoon who bought Aston Martin for billions of pounds. The British carmaker’s hope now is that the DBX SUV will continue to drive the brand’s sales, perhaps alongside the new hypercar Valkyrie whose deliveries will begin in the second half of this 2021.
