McLaren has officially unveiled a new electrified platform that will be used on the next hybrid supercars of the company. According to the Brits, the first production model that will take advantage of this new architecture will arrive sometime in 2021.
The new architecture, designed specifically to accommodate new hybrid powertrains, has been entirely engineered, developed and produced in-house in the UK.
The new flexible vehicle architecture utilises innovative, world-first processes and techniques to strip out excess mass, reduce overall vehicle weight, while also further improving safety attributes.
“The new ground-breaking vehicle architecture is every bit as revolutionary as the MonoCell chassis we introduced with the company’s first car, the 12C, when we first embarked on making production vehicles a decade ago”, said Mike Flewitt, Chief Executive Officer, McLaren Automotive.
The McLaren boss, also said that the new architecture would enable McLaren to transition to 100 per cent electrified supercars.
