Despite sluggish battery-car sales at a time when gas prices are running barely half their 2014 record high, automakers are laying out plans to add lots more electrified models in the coming years. And for those who might not find a Toyota Prius, Chevrolet Volt or Nissan Leaf quite stimulating enough, one might consider McLaren as an alternative.
McLaren, as in the British company that has been rolling out a growing range of supercars, such as the 675LT and the P1. The latter model, costing more than $1 million, just happens to be a plug-in hybrid. And, it seems, McLaren has plans to add a lot more green machines going forward.
McLaren sold 1,654 vehicles worldwide last year, and it is looking to grow that to as much as 5,000 by early in the next day, CEO Mike Flewitt told Automotive News Europe. He also noted that, “In the latter part of this business plan to 2022, more than half our cars will be hybrids.”
