McLaren has set no time frame for the launch of the all-electric car, but it is likely to be the part of automaker's top-of-the-range Ultimate Series.

McLaren also aims to make half of its cars hybrid by 2022. The company has gained some experience through its hybrid P1 supercar, and it is also supplying powertrains to Formula E cars. This will certainly help in the development of the new electric car.

The hybrid powertrains will be introduced by the end of its current five-year model lifespans. The hybrid variant of the 570 is likely to arrive in 2020, and the successor of 720 will be introduced in 2021.
