Aston Martin Lagonda's second U.K. manufacturing plant has started to produce cars, as the latest pre-production models of the luxury British carmaker's first SUV, the Aston Martin DBX, are built.

The 90-acre (364,217m2), former Ministry of Defence site at St Athan in Wales was announced as the second U.K. plant for Aston Martin Lagonda in early 2016 and since then the whole site, including three 'Super Hangars', has been transformed into a modern manufacturing facility for our handcrafted British cars.

Forming part of Aston Martin's continued investment in the U.K., the opening of St Athan has so far created 200 jobs and is expected to create up to 550 more. Also, as a direct result of this investment a further 3,000 jobs will likely be created across the supply chain and local businesses.

St Athan will be the sole production facility for the Aston Martin DBX, the brand's first SUV, which has been created for this fast-growing segment of the luxury market. Last year, it was also named as Aston Martin Lagonda's 'Home of Electrification' and the manufacturing home of the Lagonda brand.
