Introducing the McLaren Artura: McLaren’s first hybrid supercar

Meet the latest addition to the British luxury sports car line-up: the McLaren Artura, a masterclass in high-performance hybrid technology.

Luxury brands have been busy revising their iconic models for the electric age, and everyone’s excited to see how supercars will be reimagined in the time beyond fossil fuels.
McLaren is one of the biggest names in the supercar world, famed for its F1 success. And as the UK creeps ever closer toward the 2030 cut-off point for producing new petrol and diesel cars, brands like this are stepping up to deliver their electrified offerings. Positioned firmly to rival the Lamborghini Huracan and the Ferrari F8 Tributo, the McLaren Artura pairs hybrid technology with signature luxury design, all underpinned by suitably epic performance. If you’re wondering where the name “Artura” came from, it’s actually a play on the words “art” and “future”. Watch our video (above) where Rory Reid reviews the brand new electric-hybrid McLaren Artura.

The new McLaren Artura’s interior has an elegant, minimalist design, featuring sport seats upholstered in micro-suede and a buttonless, leather-trimmed steering wheel. There’s a bit more room in the cabin compared to the 720S and it also includes dual-zone climate control.

The electric future for sports cars

With the goal of a sustainable automotive industry in mind, all car manufacturers are gearing towards releasing all-electric models over the next decade, but how will fully-electric supercars compare to their internal combustion engine (ICE) counterparts?
Ruth Nic Aoidh, McLaren’s executive director for purchasing, previously admitted the weight of today's batteries "would kill all of the attributes that make a McLaren a McLaren", which explains why an all-electric supercar is currently just out of reach for the manufacturer. Will the development of EV (electric vehicle) technology open new doors for brands like McLaren, allowing them to evolve without compromising their performance and unique racing experience? Rory reviews the McLaren Artura in our latest video. Check it out and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
