↑ I seem to remember (but am far from sure) that for the gfycat tags only the "name" part should be kept. Apparently I'm wrong. :(

Here's the corresponding reddit post:

Aston Martin will make old cars electric so they don’t get banned from cities

The ‘Heritage EV’ program launches next year

Add Aston Martin to the growing list of companies using nostalgia to sell customers on the idea of an electric vehicle future. The British automaker announced this week that it’s starting a “Heritage EV” program where owners of classic Aston Martins can have their cars converted to an all-electric powertrain.

Wouldn’t this be sacrilege, you might ask? That’s an argument for another day. Aston Martin’s starting this program for a very specific reason. Cities around the world, but especially in Europe, have begun to shun internal combustion engines in favor of boosting air quality for residents. If this pattern continues, it raises the question: what good is a classic car if you can’t drive it anywhere?

Aston Martin says the technology for these conversions will be built on “key components” being used to develop the Rapide E, a super-limited all-electric sports car due late next year.

Sometimes, I wish we really did live in the future that people in the past thought we would live in.
