McLaren has announced that it plans on every vehicle in its lineup being a hybrid model by 2025. There will also be eighteen additional models, a huge jump for the 6 currently available. Some of the cars will be completely new models while others will be derivatives of existing vehicles.

In addition to this news, CEO Mike Flewitt also spoke about driver assistance technology, saying it would be “augmentation” instead of “autonomy,” saying that the features would be “designed in for safety, legislation, and emissions.” COO Jens Ludman expanded on this idea, saying that the idea is that it’s like “having a virtual coach who could show you how to improve on a track.”

In related news, McLaren recently revealed the race-ready 2019 600LT.
