Updated: May 27, 2019

Aston Martin unveiled the British luxury brand's first electric car at the Shanghai Motor Show , the Rapide E.

The Rapide E is an electric version of the gas-powered Rapide S. The car was engineered to, as much as possible, retain the driving feel of the V12-powered Rapide S, according to Aston Martin.

Aston Martin designers and engineers slightly altered the body of the sleek four-door Rapide to improve its aerodynamics.The car can drive more than 200 miles on a charge, according to Aston Martin. It can go from zero to 60 miles an hour in under four seconds and its top speed is 155 miles an hour.

The rear-wheel-drive car is powered by two electric motors mounted in the back.

It's expected to cost something over £250,000, or about $330,000.
