Aston Martin Cygnet city car
Production confirmed for 2011

Cygnet, an Aston Martin which can slot into gaps in traffic.

12 October 2010: Aston Martin confirmed yesterday the production of its Cygnet luxury commuter car from next year.

Based on the Toyota IQ city car and already shown as a concept car at the 2010 Geneva motor show in March, the Cygnet is designed and built at Aston Martin’s Gaydon headquarters in Warwickshire, England.

The British brand says that its Cygnet city car will set a "new benchmark for compact luxury, building upon its experience in making high performance sports cars, luxurious long-range grand tourers and racing machines".

A very rich palette of materials, colours and textures.

The pure functional purpose of the new Aston Martin cannot be clearer: at three metres long, the Cygnet can slot into gaps in traffic, use the smallest parking spaces, consume less fuel and emit lower emissions. The latter is one of the most significant points on the regulatory side, since the small car will help reduce the emissions average for the Aston Martin model range.

In size terms, the body of the four-passenger Toyota iQ is 2.99metres long, 1.68m wide, 1.50m high, with a 2.00m wheelbase. This size allows the iQ (and normally the Cygnet) to offer a very practical 7.8m turning diameter in cities.

Cygnet: price speculations start from around 30,000 euros.

“Cygnet is small but luxurious, an Aston Martin tailor fit for the city,” says Marek Reichman, Aston Martin's Director of Design. With a very rich palette of materials, colours and textures, each hand-finished Cygnet can be uniquely personalised.

From these angles combined, the Cygnet should help Aston Martin to continue to prosper in new market conditions. The favorite James Bond cars maker sold 4000 cars last year, compared with 5800 in 2008. The company hopes to sell about 4000 Cygnet annually (Aston Martin customers will have the priority for orders). 

Although current estimations expect the cygnet prices to start from around 30,000 euros, official pricing and specification will be announced later this year.
