What will be the receiver of the hybrid supercar McLaren P1?March 8, 2020
The current CEO of the British automaker Mike Flewitt, told reporters about what will be the receiver of the legendary hybrid supercar McLaren P1.
The McLaren P1 hybrid supercar has been on the market for quite some time now, and it’s only a matter of time before McLaren is about to present a worthy successor to its legend. The question is, will the new model have a hybrid powerplant or get a fully electric one in order to compete with more powerful electric hypercars? The novelty should appear in 2024.
McLaren CEO Mike Flewitt gave some hints about a similar car. According to Mr. Flewitt, the successor to the hybrid P1 will either remain hybrid or receive a fully electric motor. He considers the last option the least likely.
“I like electric cars, I’ve been driving them a lot lately, and they are suitable for regular use, and for going to the race track. They have incredible performance, ”said Flewitt.
“But the ride time (its power reserve) on electric vehicles is really limited. Take the 765LT as an example. If it was an electric car, you could, maybe, 30 minutes of time to ride on it, using all its power, and then you would have to recharge the batteries. It is very uncomfortable”.
It is worth noting that the British government has adjusted the ultimatum for internal combustion engines – now companies should electrify their cars by 2035.
