LAS VEGAS — McLaren Automotive is examining the SUV and crossover segment of the exotic and ultraluxury markets, a top executive at the British brand confirmed, adding no final decision has been made on such a model.
Bentley, Lamborghini, Rolls-Royce and Aston Martin have launched SUVs to great success in recent years while the first utility vehicle deliveries from Ferrari and Lotus are to start in 2023.
McLaren, however, has yet to follow suit.
"The most important thing is to provide a [vehicle] that has more space or ability for a McLaren customer to share the experience with more people," Jamie Corstorphine, McLaren's director of product strategy, told Automotive News on the sidelines of a media event here. "How high-riding it is, whether it's a crossover ... that's to be decided and in fact, nothing is set at this point."
