(REUTERS) - Luxury sports car maker Aston Martin is in discussions with Mercedes-Benz over building its first SUV and hopes to have the SUV in showrooms within three to four year, the Financial Times reported, citing sources.

An Aston Martin spokeswoman told Reuters that the automaker does not have any such plans. "We do not currently have a plan to add an SUV to the model line-up." She declined to elaborate on product discussions. The FT said a possible SUV collaboration is one of a number of potential areas of collaboration between Aston and Mercedes.

The paper cited people who declined to be identified.

"The parties are working to conclude the terms of an additional cooperation for the supply of electric electronic components," Mercedes-Benz, owned by Daimler AG told Reuters.
