British supercar manufacturer McLaren drives into India, the brand’s 41st global territory


British luxury high-performance supercar maker McLaren Automotive, renowned worldwide for the exclusive, luxury, high-performance supercars has entered the major Indian market, the brand’s 41st global territory.

With the opening of first Indian retail outlet in Mumbai, McLaren says the launch forms a key part of the marque’s global expansion plans.

Analysts pinpoint India as a high population market with very good long-term automotive demand prospects.

With a population of nearly 1.4 billion people, India’s economy is forecast to grow by 7% this year, making it the 5th largest economy in the world. It was the world’s 11th largest economy a decade ago. 

According to IIFL Wealth Hurun India Rich List 2022, there are also now 1,103 Indians with a net worth of Rs 1,000 crore each — an increase of 62 per cent over five years. The list says there are also now 221 billionaires in India.

The new dealership say the first McLaren models to be sold in India are likely to be the GT and 720s.

“The former is a grand-tourer prefect for crunching miles, while the latter is a sports car known for its physics defying dynamics. These could later be joined by the Mclaren Artura and 765LT Coupe and Spider models.”

Lalit Choudary at McLaren Mumbai said:

“It is an honour to be appointed as McLaren Automotive’s first retail partner in India – McLaren Mumbai. As a globally renowned supercar manufacturer, McLaren is the pinnacle of modern supercar luxury. We look forward to opening the McLaren Mumbai retail experience and offering McLaren customers an outstanding opportunity to engage with the brand and to be part of the McLaren owners’ community.”

Paul Harris, Managing Director at APAC and China, McLaren Automotive said:

“We welcome Lalit Choudary of McLaren Mumbai to the expanding retailer network here in the Asia Pacific region. India remains an important market where our fans and select clientele can enjoy the best of McLaren in Mumbai. Looking ahead, we will shortly welcome the Artura to India, the all-new high-performance hybrid supercar.”
