McLaren Automotive today confirmed the introduction of a brand new flexible, lightweight vehicle architecture which will underpin the next generation electrified Mclaren.
This new architecture is designed specifically to accommodate the new hybrid powertrains, which has been engineered, developed and produced entirely in-house at the McLaren’s state-of-the-art McLaren Composites Technology Centre (MCTC) in the Sheffield region, United Kingdom.
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.
It will underpin the next generation of McLaren hybrid models as the supercar company enters its second decade of series vehicle production.
The first new McLaren hybrid supercar will be based on the all-new architecture will hit the market in 2021.
