McLaren admits to working on a full electric supercar


Attached Image The supercar company has confirmed that it is working on a full electric supercar. However, it is still far from being production ready.

As reported by Autocar, McLaren's engineering design Director Dan Parry-Williams has admitted that it has a full electric protoype running around.

"We've got a pure EV mule, and part of the reason for that is to ask how we can deliver driver engagement in a fully electric world. But there's still quite a journey from here to there, in terms of our products", Parry-Williams revealed.

He then added on that current battery technology remains an issue for the car as a high performance electric vehicle drains battery at an alarming rate and still takes too long recharge when it is drained at after some track work.

"Let's say you want to drive on track for half an hour. If that was an electric vehicle, that car would have over 500 miles of (road) electric vehicle range, and it would be flat as a pancake at the end. The energy required to do really high performance on track is staggering. And then you have to recharge it", he said.

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?
