GENEVA--McLaren did the unexpected with its new P1 model: built it with a plug-in hybrid drivetrain. In that respect, it follows the Porsche 918 Spyder as a high-performance hybrid. The P1 uses a carbon fiber monocoque body, rear-wheel drive, and a midmounted engine. The lightweight construction, perfect for a high-performance car, also helps its electric drive system.
