Jaguar Land Rover has had a long-lasting partnership with the James Bond franchise, but while pretty much every car in the recent films is a JLR product, Bond’s vehicle of choice has always been an Aston Martin instead.

But why?

The I-Pace could be the perfect Bond car. It’s electric, so it’s quiet enough to be secret (unlike the ‘look at me’ one-off Aston Martin DB10 from Spectre), and it’ll show Bond as being environmentally conscious – not that that would be a deal-breaker anyway.
