James Bond Goes Green in New Movie With Electric Aston Martin Car

By Sophie Hirsh

You may not see James Bond wearing a secondhand suit or shopping at the farmer's market anytime soon, but the beloved character just made his first big step for the environment. As reported by The Sun, actor Daniel Craig will drive an electric Aston Martin car in the upcoming James Bond film — a first for the car aficionado. 

Craig's James Bond will drive an Aston Martin Rapide E, a fully electric car. According to Aston Martin's website, the luxury car company is only building 155 Rapide E cars, and customers won't receive them until the end of 2019. The model will retail for £250,000 (about $329,500 USD) according to The Sun. So basically, your chances of snagging a Rapide E of your own are about as slim as a bad Bond villain prevailing over Bond.

The upcoming film, with a working title of Bond 25 (as it will be the 25th James Bond movie), will be directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, best known for directing Beasts of No Nation and the first season of True Detective. Production is slated to begin soon, in early April 2019, and the movie is expected to hit theaters in April 2020, as per Entertainment Weekly.
