Aston Martin showcased an all-electric version of the Rapide S four-door sports sedan today, outside Lancaster House in London.

The unveiling is meant to coincide with a visit from President of The People’s Republic of China, Xi Jinping, who is meeting with Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge (as in Princess Kate).

Why? Very good question. The idea of shoehorning an electric powertrain into the Rapide S was born out of necessity, not love for the environment. Aston Martin needs to comply with more stringent emission regulations being enforced in China, and an EV is the only way.
