Aston Martin is currently in talks with potential investors following the issue of a worrying drop in profits and apparently one of those investors is China’s Geely.
According to the Financial Times, Geely is interested in acquiring a stake into the British car maker and has already been in touch with Aston’s management and investors.
Aston Martin recently announced that their profit for 2019 is expected to be almost half of that achieved the year before, mostly due to the weak European market.
The British car maker expects that the new DBX SUV will help steer the company back on the right track, with Aston Martin saying that it has already received 1,800 orders for it, a “significantly better” number than any other previous models.
