Electrification is quite the inevitable evolution amongst every major performance marque. McLaren launched its first plug-in hybrid, Artura and is already ready to be ordered. Artura is McLaren’s one big ambitious project, portraying their vision for the future. McLaren’s Carbon Fibre Lightweight Architecture (MCLA) debuted on the Artura alongside their very first High Performance Hybrid Powertrain. The British supercar maker is planning out an entire lineup of hybrid vehicles and is set out to offer a hybrid successor to their every variant by 2025.
The 2022 Artura supercar is powered by a V6 twin turbo (577 hp, 431lb-ft torque) mated with an electric motor ( 94 hp, 166 lb-ft torque, 7.4 kWh lithium-ion battery pack). This makes a combined output power of 671 hp and 531 lb-ft of torque. The transmission is an eight- speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Estimates are that the acceleration time from 0 to 60 mph takes 3.0 seconds with a top speed of 205 mph. McLaren claims the Artura having a ‘medium-range’ on all-electric operation.
The interior is relatively more premium than a 720S, however nothing exceptional. There’s a decent 8.0 inch vertically-oriented infotainment system with most of the standard features and driver-assistant technologies.
The pricing starts from a grand 225K USD and these exclusive wheels would roll out on the roads in a few months.
