McLaren Artura delayed again: the company postponed the start of production.

The model cannot reach the assembly line because of the shortage of microchips: they decided to give them to «higher-margin» cars.

The history of the company McLaren began in 1963, it was founded by the American Ted Mayer and a racer of the Formula 1 from New Zealand Bruce McLaren.

In this case, the development of the so-called «road» (not racing) car manufacturer has become engaged only in 1989: the first model — McLaren F1 — appeared three years later.

Now the company is based in England, at the beginning of the year she declassified a novelty — a hybrid supercar Artura. However, the model never reached the assembly line.

Release of the new model of McLaren is postponed for the third time already.

According to Automotive News, the company has decided again to postpone deliveries of hybrid sports car — this time until July 2022.

According to the magazine, the manufacturer attributes this to the fact that the supply of microchips is now limited: we have repeatedly written about the lack of semiconductors, which has already affected the global auto industry.

So the company has now decided to focus on other models — «higher-margin»; in particular, mentioned Elva and 765LT Spider.

Representatives of the brand McLaren gave no official comment on the priority given to «higher-margin» models, but explained that «the supply of semiconductors dried up,» which resulted in the company had to reduce production overall, and the launch of the Artura once again postponed.

Of course, July 2022 is a very tentative date, because when the problems with the shortage of microchips will end, it is not clear yet.
