OnePlus’s April Fools Joke Is An Electric Tesla Killer, Reigns Light On Continued Partnership With McLaren

OnePlus just can’t have enough of their new partner, McLaren. Following the launch of the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition, OnePlus has found a way to justify its continuosly increasing price tags.

Following a series of other April fools jokes, OnePlus has decided to throw in their own take on the whole April Fools tantrum brands have been going on for the past few years. This year, OnePlus has teased a McLaren-like design car, dubbed the “Warpcar”.

In hysterical fashion, OnePlus claims their imaginative Warp Car would be the fastest-charging electric vehicle on the planet, clocking in 270 miles of range with a 20-minute charge. Furthermore, OnePlus details that the total range of the vehicle would top out at 290 miles along with an acceleration of 0-60mph in just 3 seconds.

And while you may be giggling your feathers off, it’s worthy to note how much OnePlus has been promoting their products around the McLaren branding. If you were watching close enough, you would have realized the car logo on the McLaren being switched out for OnePlus’s logo.

Given that the OnePlus 7 launch is just around the corner, we can’t wait to see what OnePlus has in store within the next month or two as we head deeper into 2019. Hopefully, these teasers may be calling for yet another McLaren-branded OnePlus 7. In a world where Huawei has their P30, Samsung has their Galaxy S10 and Xiaomi has their Mi 9, it would be interesting to see what OnePlus brings to the table. For now, though, we’re going to have to wait and see.
