McLaren promises 18 new cars, 100-percent hybrid by 2025

McLaren 600LT

It'll use a hybrid powertrain - McLaren says that its entire sports auto and supercar line-up will be electrified before 2025 - and the company claims it is now developing a lightweight, superfast-charging, high-power battery system for high performance vehicles.

This new battery is supposed to give future McLaren electric cars over 30 minutes of range around a race track.

This also means that McLaren will build a new Ultimate Series auto that will act as a direct successor to the P1 hypercar, its first hybrid model that it launched in 2015.

The manufacturer has previously produced just one hybrid vehicle - the P1 hypercar introduced in 2013 - which will also receive a successor within the next seven years.

McLaren are busy mapping out where there road cars are going, and has announced a new "Track25" plan at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, declaring where the company will be by 2025.

It is an evolution of an earlier plan, Track22, first launched at the Geneva Motor Show in 2016.

Italy transfers migrants off ship, but refuses them entry
On Saturday morning, they were transferred to two military vessels but where the vessels will dock remains unclear. Eight of the migrants who needed medical assistance were taken to the Italian island of Lampedusa for treatment.

McLaren is also planning a fully electric sports auto which it says will have to incorporate a fast charging system for its battery system along with a 300km range.

Cars will feature enhanced cyber protection, improved vehicle tracking and over-the-air (OTA) software updates, allowing owners to benefit from new features without the need to spend time at retailers.

McLaren revealed that the 600LT will rely on a more refined version of the 3.8L V8 that can develop 592hp and 457ft-lbs of torque.

Claimed to take performance to "another level", the next hypercar will be the "best driver's auto on track and on road", says McLaren boss, Mike Flewitt.

McLaren Automotive also revealed that it planned to expand in existing markets as well as "evaluate" several major new markets, including Russia, India and Central/Eastern Europe. True to McLaren's spirit, however, our ambitions, continue to grow and our [$1.6 billion] Track25 business plan which covers 18 new models, including a new McLaren P1, is clear proof of that.

McLaren Automotive, the largest part of the McLaren Group, has a global workforce of around 2,300 people across offices in the UK, US, Bahrain, China, Singapore, Japan and Spain.
