The publication also said that Moers hinted the V-6-based powertrain for Aston Maryin's Valhalla hypercar, which uses an in-house-developed engine, could be replaced by a Mercedes powertrain. The CEO also predicted that every fourth or fifth Aston Martin sold in 2024 will be electrified in a way.

The announcements by Moers come after Mercedes-parent Daimler increased its stake in Aston Martin to up to 20% by 2023, making it one of the largest shareholders of the struggling British carmaker. "(In exchange, Mercedes) will be able to provide Aston Martin with access to new cutting-edge powertrain and software technologies and components, including next generation hybrid and electric drive systems," said Wolf-Dieter Kurz, Head of Product Strategy at Mercedes-Benz Cars.

The British carmaker will be able to use the technologies and powertrain architecture of Mercedes for all its product launches through to 2027.
