As a part of the test program, Aston Martin DBX, the first SUV of this British marque has undergone extensive assessment recently at the Pirelli’s test facility in Sweden. Matt Becker, chief engineer of Aston Martin put the DBX prototype to the test at Pirelli’s R&D Sottozero Centre at the Flurheden comprising of various range of extreme environments from snowy roads to ice-handling courses.
Becker explained the testing as the model needs to be apt for a wide range of multi terrain surfaces. Hence the model should be tested not only in normal day-today-situations but also in extreme conditions such as these. Moreover, testing these prototypes in cold climate conditions helps us to assess the car’s early dynamics and crucially ensure confidence, inspiring sure-footedness on low grip surfaces.
As per reports, the prototype building will start in mid-2019 at St Athan, before the full production commences in 2020.
