According to the official statement of the auto manufacturer, Aston Martin plans to stop production of its city car – Cygnet.

The brand made decision to drop the production of the Cygnet model, which was planned as a novelty expanding the brand’s range and allowing the carmaker to enter a new segment. The company is focusing on the main product direction – sports cars.
The production of this city car was something like the justification of the auto manufacturer to build cars equipped with V-8 and V-12 engines, while the Cygnet was a car that had low CO2 emission.
The Cygnet is based on the same platform as the Toyota iQ, which is also a city car. Both models are equipped with a 1.3-liter engine, producing the power of 97 horsepower only. The fuel consumption of this car is 58.9 mpg.
The Aston brand started launching of its city car in 2011, it was really short life of this model but some owners, who bought this car, was popular people indeed. .
However, the small vehicle was not cheap. Its price was about 50,000 dollars in the American market.
This model was sold mainly in the UK. According to some information now, there are just 143 cars there.
Anyway, the auto manufacturer does not have to lose a hope to introduce a small car. Owing to its collaboration with AMG, they may produce something interesting. We will see…
