McLaren to release cut-price, all-electric P1-based hypercar by 2020


We never thought that we’d describe a sub-£1 million car as a ‘bargain’, but when put against the mighty McLaren P1, the firm’s rumoured all-electric, track-focused car, set to be well on the way for a 2020 launch date, really does seem like a bit of a steal.

There are a lot of rumours circulating about this model. Could it be the first all-electric road car to crack 200mph, for example? But if quotes from Auto Express are anything to go by, one thing’s for sure: its electric powerplant won’t stop it from being a whole lot of fun, with the firm aiming to offer at least 30 minutes of hard track driving from a full charge, followed by a 30 minute charge before you can do it all over again. Sounds tempting!

“No one buys a McLaren because they need one. We know that,” Auto Express’ insider told the publication. “So we need to make an EV that’s as exciting as a 675LT.”

It’s great to see purebred performance firms getting on the fully-EV wagon, and we can’t wait to see the results…
