Mclaren P1 replacer could be an all-electric hypercar

Mclaren P1 replacer could be an all-electric hypercar

Mclaren is contemplating about making an all-electric hypercar by 2023. This all electric hypercar might possibly replace the P1. 

The British brand is showing a lot of focus on hybrid and EVs. In fact, it has a new initiative, Track 22, which aims at turning half of its range into hybrids by 2022. The company has the ability to be a pioneer in this regard as it even now supplies powertrain technology to Formula E. So it is already sitting in a lot of experience and knowledge. 

“Suppliers in the battery industry are working flat out to improve the energy density of their batteries, while what we want are batteries with better power density. One promotes range, the other performance, and the more power density you have, the bigger the issues with cooling the battery pack," said Mark Vinnels, executive director, programme development, Mclaren.

In order to make an all-electric hypercar, Mclaren needs to figure out how to increase battery density to generate more power. Most of the manufacturers are working on increasing the energy density to get the maximum driving range. 

There are other manufacturers who are already working on bringing in hybrid and EVs. Porsche has announced the Panamera S E-hybrid, which churns out 671bhp of power. They also have the Mission E Coupe which is expected to go into production by 2020.
