McLaren For Kids: Affordable Electric Car Mclaren P1, Not Just A Toy Car

First Posted: Sep 30, 2016 04:35 AM EDT

McLaren has rolled out its much awaited first pure electric car, with a special touch to it. The Car named McLaren P1 is made especially for the drivers under the age of six. Well, it's quite a surprise. McLaren Automotive has long been in development of a pure electric vehicle (EV) but no-one thought the Product would be as awesome as this.

The Mclaren P1 is not just a toy vehicle for children. The electric vehicle though looks like its bigger brother Mclaren P1 GTR, Its features match more with the McLaren F1, with a central driver position, dihedral doors and an amazing acceleration from zero to its maximum speed (3 mph)in just two seconds.

The Mclaren P1 EV is an open-top, so it's obvious that the young drivers will get to experience much more than the Pros who drove its big brother. Although the clever design retains McLaren's signature dihedral doors, the EVs acceleration is startling. The zero to 3 mph speed dash happens in just two seconds. The EV opts for pure electric power, dispensing entirely with the gas engine. It also doesn't have a roof and the seat provides a pure driving experience.

The Mclaren P1 electric vehicle includes air conditioning, activation lights, MP3 player, an audio system and pre-programmed songs that also include popular nursery rhymes. It almost has everything a Kid 6 years old can imagine and even much more than that.

McLaren Automotive has been quite busy in the development of this newly launched EV but after the launch, now it's pretty clear where those rumors about Apple's acquisition of McLaren came from. Mclaren P1 is the first official electric vehicle from the Auto Manufacturer and Probably the most affordable too. It's also the first ever children's toy car the company has produced. The only limitation the toy EV has is that it currently comes only in one color, The Volcano Yellow. The Car will be launched at the end of next month with a price of about $488 (£375.00).
