McLaren Automotive, a British luxury supercar manufacturer, unveils the McLaren Artura 2023 hybrid supercar in India.
The next-generation supercar combines spectacular performance, driving dynamics, and engagement with pure EV driving capability. It is the culmination of McLaren’s skill and experience gained over six decades in both race and road car engineering.
McLaren Artura 2023 Performance
The Artura is a distillation of every characteristic inherent in a McLaren, underpinned by the McLaren philosophy of super-lightweight engineering learned from and refined through six decades of motor racing at the greatest levels. Thanks to its innovative electrified engine, it offers a quicker throttle response, lower emissions, and the potential to operate exclusively in electric mode. There are four powertrain modes to meet multiple driving needs available on the McLaren Artura: E-mode, Comfort, Sport, and Track. E-mode is the default setting for emissions-free, all-electric operation.
In Comfort mode, the E-motor functions in conjunction with the V6 gasoline engine to maximise fuel efficiency. In Sport mode, the V6 aims for maximum performance while the E-motor delivers torque augmentation at lower rpm. The same hybridised power blend is delivered in track mode, with quicker shifts provided by the gearbox software.
Platform of the Artura
The McLaren Artura is the first vehicle to feature the new McLaren Carbon Lightweight Architecture (MCLA), which establishes new benchmarks for cutting-edge, flexible chassis design and has been tailored for hybrid applications using a custom battery compartment, domain-based ethernet electrical architecture, and an electrical heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) system. The new platform combines with other weight-saving techniques to create a 1,395kg dry weight that leads the industry and a 1,498kg DIN kerb weight.
Engine of the Artura
A lightweight 2,993cc twin-turbocharged V6 petrol engine with increased throttle response is at the centre of Artura’s all-new powertrain. This engine has a connection with an eight-speed gearbox and a lithium-ion battery pack. The combination produces power-to-weight ratio of 488PS per tonne with a combined power output of 680PS (671 bhp) and 720 Nm of torque. The Artura has a limited top speed of 330 km/h, and its 0-100 km/h and 0-200 km/h times are just 3.0 and 8.3 seconds, respectively.
The Artura can charge to 80% capacity in under 2.5 hours and has full Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) capability. Depending on the chosen driving mode, the battery pack can withdraw power from the combustion engine while the vehicle is in motion. With a range of up to 31 kilometres and a top speed of 330 kilometres per hour, this solution gives the driver the rare opportunity to enjoy the car in silent, pure EV mode.
McLaren Artura’s features
The instrument cluster on the Mclaren Artura 2023 moves along with the steering wheel. This design has a whole new significance. This improves the driving experience of the Supercar. Additionally, it has a brand-new cabin with cutting-edge safety measures and smartphone mirroring.
Artura’s Warranty Package
The car comes with the following:
- 3-year service plan
- 10-year body perforation corrosion warranty
- 6-year battery warranty
- 5-year vehicle warranty.
McLaren Artura Fuel Consumption and CO2 Ratings
The Artura is the most fuel-efficient with a consumption of 4.6 l/100 Kilometres. This model has a CO2 rating of 100 g/ kilometres.
