James Bond 25 Will Have 007 Driving an Electric Car?
007 Goes Green As James Bond 25 Would Present The Iconic MI6 Spy driving a car electric vehicle. This longstanding franchise has always been closely associated with the cars driven by Bond. This goes back to the iconic Aston Martin DB5, which was first featured in the classic Sean Connery Goldfinger . But the Daniel Craig era will end with a slightly more progressive choice, while retaining the usual upscale status at the same time.
According to a new report, James Bond 25 will see 007 flying an Aston Martin Rapide E, one of the 155 cars of this particular model manufactured by the company. The electric car, although perhaps a little more environmentally friendly in some respects, will cost about $ 283,000. So, not really the green way for the average consumer. According to an unnamed source named close to the situation, here is how things went behind the scenes.
"The decision was made by the new film director [Cary Fukunaga] who is a total tree-hugger, working directly with Aston Martin to prepare one of their electric cars for his close-up, which will be the center of an incredible action sequence in the movie James Bond is known to have driven incredible cars and this one has won It's one thing that Cary has defended and that Daniel and the producers engage with us Everyone is afraid that Bond will be labeled "too PC", but they all thought it was time to place it in a zero-emission vehicle. "
To date James Bond did not drive an electric car in any of the movies. This would be a relatively important step. It remains to be seen whether or not the world in general would have a negative reaction to this, but it is doubtful. However, it is easy to see how a small group of very loud voices could be heard about the studio that is pushing a "PC Bond".
Yet everything is an issue of execution. If it's a good movie and that action sequence in question is cool, what does it matter if it's an electric car? For the moment, until someone related to the production confirms this possible detail, it is best to take this with a healthy grain of salt. That said, it's not the most far-fetched rumor we've ever heard.

What we do know is that after many delays, the film should finally enter in production next month. This will be Daniel Craig's final release in 007 and the majority of the main actors from previous films during his tenure should return. Rami Malek ( Bohemian Rhapsody ) is about to play the main villain. James Bond 25 is due to be released in theaters on April 8, 2020. This news was first reported by The Sun.
