The company McLaren Automotive announced a plan to develop the model range until 2025. According to the document called Track25, within seven years the brand will release 18 new cars, with all supercars by this time will become hybrid. Also, new auxiliary control systems and high-capacity battery systems will be developed, capable of providing up to 30 minutes on a racing track.

Under the new development plan, £ 50 million will be invested in the construction of the McLaren Composites Technology Center (MCTC), which will develop and manufacture a new generation of lightweight composite materials. The company intends to produce up to 57 percent of components of future models in the UK.

By 2025, the British brand will release 18 new models and modifications of the existing ones: they must provide a 75 per cent increase in production compared to the current level – up to 6,000 cars per year. In this case, all cars will, as before, collect on the territory of the McLaren Production Center in Woking.

In addition to improving driving performance, including increased comfort, McLaren intends to expand the equipment of its vehicles: customers will be offered solutions to protect against cyberattacks, the possibility of upgrading the internal software “by air” and advanced vehicle tracking systems.

Track25 will replace the Track22 approved in 2016, according to which until 2022 McLaren planned to release 15 new models, spending on their development of a billion pounds. The company also expected that by that time half of the model line will be represented by hybrids, and in the lineup there will be an electric hypercar.
