New Aston Martin DBX perhaps produced in Wales
During the Royal Welsh Show, the British Prime Minister David Cameron expressed great optimism about the possibility that Aston Martin will produce the luxury crossover DBX at its plant in St. Athan in Wales, near Bridgend.
But a spokesman for the Aston Martin (between the brand's shareholders there is also the Bonomi family), responded to the Premier that no final decision has been made yet.
Before Cameron's wish, some rumors already emerged if the brand should choose Wales or a plant around Birmingham for the assembly of the DBX model, but the carmaker also has not ruled out a location in the State of Alabama.
"Here in Wales I think there is a real potential and we’re willing to make that available as part of the efforts to persuade Aston Martin Lagonda to manufacture their new prestige SUV in the UK", said Cameron.
Negotiations will continue in the coming months and a decision is expected by the end of the third quarter. The Aston Martin DBX was unveiled as world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show last March and for its official launch on the markets will have to wait until 2019.
