McLaren Automotive has dropped a further hint that hybrid technology will feature on its future supercars.
The firm is advertising for an electrical engineer to work on the “concept, design and development of the electrical package and wiring system for a hybrid electric vehicle”.
A McLaren spokesman wouldn’t confirm whether or not the advert meant it was planning on adding hybrid technology to its road cars.
The spokesman said: “Hybrid technology is something that we are looking at and assessing. It is something we are interested in.”
The company advertised for a senior engineer in powertrain hybrid technology in July of last year.
When queried at that stage, a McLaren spokesman said: “It [hybrid technology] is something we want as a forward-thinking, technology-driven company. We have been considering it for future projects.
