New McLaren high-performance hybrid supercar enters final testing

After more or less ten months of announcing it, McLaren reports that its new high-performance hybrid supercar is now in its final round of development, which includes running the car on public roads.

Due to launch in the middle of next year, the hybrid supercar represents a new era of electrification for the popular British sports car marque, as production on its Sports Series range nears its end.

The High-Performance Hybrid powertrain is propelled by an all-new V6 internal combustion engine, and will provide medium-range EV-only drive capability. This new, lighter V6 engine, possessing a front axle electric configuration, will reportedly have a 0 to 100kmph acceleration time of 2.38secs.

Unlike secondary batteries that need to be recharged, fuel cells are a type of eco-friendly power generation system that produce electricity directly from electrochemical reactions using hydrogen as fuel and oxygen as oxidant. There are various types of fuel cells, differing in operating temperatures and electrolyte materials. Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs), which use a ceramic electrolyte, are receiving increasing attention. Because they operate at high temperatures around 700 degrees Celsius, they offer the highest efficiency among fuel cell types, and can also be used to produce hydrogen by steam decomposition. For the commercialization of this technology, further improvement of cell performance is necessary, and novel high-temperature catalyst materials are highly anticipated.


Platinum (Pt)-based catalysts demonstrate excellent performance in fuel cell electrode reactions. Single-atom Pt catalysts are interesting due to their unique functionality.
