McLaren is preparing to release 18 new vehicles between now and 2025 but none will be a SUV despite pressure from nearly all of its competitors who have entered the lucrative SUV market.
Given that the brand’s current production output is 4,500 units per year or about 20 to 22 cars per day, this presents a clear need for an increase in capacity.
One of those new vehicles will be a successor to the McLaren P1, which was a plug-in hybrid sports car with a highly limited production run of 375 units built between 2013 and 2015.
Only Ferrari seems to be a competitor without a SUV at present but plans are in the pipeline to build the first Ferrari SUV before 2021.
Rolls Royce is seeing high demand for its Cullinan SUV despite its boxy hearse-like profile as a new group of younger buyers walk into their showrooms with way too much in their bank accounts.
