Aston in US talks over first overseas factory

cars

Aston Martin has reportedly held talks with several US states about building its first overseas factory to provide a production facility for its new DBX 4x4 model. Aston is being courted by several states in the southern US with incentives including land and tax breaks. The car maker is also looking at UK sites for its DBX factory, including former car making centres such as the former Jaguar site at Browns Lane in Coventry. The DBX, unveiled at the Geneva motor show in March, forms the centrepiece of chief executive Andy Palmer's strategy to reverse the car maker's falling sales. Aston wants to take annual shipments of its sports cars from about 4,000 back to pre-crisis levels of about 7,000. It also hopes to build 3,000 additional units annually of its planned luxury saloon car.
