TRACK22 - THE ROAD TO 2022

As well as unveiling the new 570GT at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, McLaren Automotive CEO Mike Flewitt also used the occasion to make some important announcements about the future of the company more broadly. 

 

 

We’ve been in business now as a company for six years, and we’ve taken a lot of time to look out into the future,’ Mike explained, standing on McLaren’s new, larger show stand. ‘We’ve redefined our business plan for the coming six years, taking us out to 2022. We’ve called it ‘Track22’ because it defines the track we’re on, into the future, and it’s a track that gives us a very profitable and sustainable business.

Highlights of the Track22 plan include an investment of £1 billion into R&D over the coming six years, leading to the launch of 15 all-new cars or derivatives. Mike confirmed this investment will be self-funded.

McLaren will continue to focus purely on two-seater sports and supercars, and Mike revealed that a spider version of the Sports Series is already in the pipeline, to join the 570S and new 570GT. Standing alongside the McLaren 675LT Spider – which made its public debut at the show – he also said the LT badge will become a track-focused sub-brand for McLaren, with further models to come.

Finally, the plan encompasses new powertrains, with a fully electric system already in the prototype stages for evaluation in a possible future-generation Ultimate Series car. By 2022, the Track22 plan says that at least 50 per cent of McLaren cars will feature hybrid technology, following in the footsteps of the hugely successful petrol-electric McLaren P1™.

‘Above all, this Business Plan confirms that McLaren Automotive will remain proudly and fiercely independent by continuing to build the world’s finest two-seater sports and supercars, hand-crafted by our team in Woking, England.’ Mike concluded.
