McLaren to release 18 new cars by 2025 under new Track25 plan

McLaren has revealed a new business plan at the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed, with the British supercar firm promising it will launch 18 new models and derivatives by 2025 as part of a £1.2 billion investment. 

Called Track25, the new plan is an expansion of the already established Track22 plan revealed at the Geneva Motor Show in 2016. That original strategy did not include scope for an Ultimate Series successor to the P1 hypercar, but Track25 makes it perfectly clear that a new flagship will happen.

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

McLaren is also currently developing an all-electric hypercar. Two years ago, CEO Mike Flewitt declared to Auto Express that the model will be “the most exciting sports car we have ever made.” A three-seat model codenamed BP23 is in the pipeline too.

The firm’s product roadmap will include replacements for Sports Series cars (570S, 570GT and 600LT) and Super Series (720S) models. All will be electrified with hybrid powertrains as standard. 

McLaren predicts that the product drive will lift production by almost 75 per cent, and the firm is targeting an output of 6,000 cars annually by the mid 2020s. McLaren will continue to produce all of its cars at its production centre in Woking.
