McLaren does not intend to follow the example of Lamborghini, Ferrari and Aston Martin and is not going to make a crossover. Because it will not give the maximum driving pleasure.

Despite the fact that the segment of crossovers includes brands that have not previously made such models, McLaren is not going to follow the example of Ferrari, Lamborghini and Aston Martin. The British automaker has once again declared that it will not release a crossover.

“I can easily answer the McLaren crossover question — no, there won’t be such a model,” said Mark Roberts, chief designer at McLaren Automotive, at the Canadian International Auto Show. car “.

If the fashion for crossovers bypasses the McLaren side, then the brand will not go anywhere from another trend. In the future, there will be a fully electric McLaren sports car, which is already being developed and even being tested. Hybrid models are no longer planned, and instead, the company will immediately take a step from cars with internal combustion engines to electric vehicles.

According to previously announced plans, by 2025 McLaren will show at least 18 new models. Their number is likely to include several limited supercars and the successor to the McLaren P1.

At the same time, Mark Roberts acknowledged that the expansion of the model line will be a difficult task for McLaren, since the company needs to increase production volumes, which now range from 20 to 22 cars per day.
