Aston Martin's CEO Andy Palmer has officially announced the development of an all-electric Rapide, which is set to make its debut in 2017.

The British carmaker has also hinted that the unveiling of the electric Rapide will be followed by the production version of yet another electric model – the DBX crossover, which was previewed at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year.
