Big Mac with ex­tra elec­tric­ity

Wheels (Australia) - - Redline -

Mclaren has started work on an EV pro­to­type ahead of a fully fledged elec­tric su­per­car. Mclaren CEO Mike Fle­witt told Wheels: “We’ll build [the EV pro­to­type] into an ex­ist­ing ar­chi­tec­ture; it may even end up be­ing the 12C ar­chi­tec­ture ini­tially … be­cause we want to learn step-by-step.” The first pro­to­type will be fol­lowed by a limited run of EVS to gauge reaction among own­ers. But don’t think the next-gen of Mclarens will be silent: “One of things we de­bate all the time in-house is the noise. With our cars we tune noise – we don’t just try to oblit­er­ate it.”
