Upcoming Aston Martin crossover may be produced in the US

After announcing their plan to revamp their entire model lineup by 2020, Aston Martin is reportedly considering the possibility of setting up a US facility to build their upcoming crossover.

According to reports from The Financial Times and Automotive News Europe (ANE), Aston Martin is in talks with several US states regarding a proposed overseas factory. In addition, sources close to the matter have stated that a handful of southern states are enticing the British automaker aggressively since most of them have special incentives for factories like tax breaks on land.

But the automaker is also looking at a potential site back in the UK, specifically the old Jaguar factory located at Browns Lane, Coventry.

Aston Martin has neither confirmed nor denied these reports.

The recently-unveiled all-electric DBX concept is speculated to be the company's preview for their upcoming crossover. It is slated to be launched in three to four years time.
