Morgan Electric 3 Wheeler Revealed
Speculation on the electric Morgan 3 Wheeler eight months ago proved to be true.
Morgan announced in June the EV3, a pure electric version of its hot seller, which is currently undertaking a full testing and development program.
Morgan Motor Company expects to begin sales in 2016.
The EV3 will get 45 kW of power at the rear wheel. The target range stands at 150 miles (240 km).
Pretty cool thing is that weight will be lower than the standard 3 Wheeler.
“The Morgan EV3 concept is the second full electric vehicle produced by the Morgan Motor Company. Following the Plus E, the EV3 is based on the standard Morgan 3 Wheeler that was reintroduced back in 2011. Bespoke to order, hand crafted and most of all fun, the EV3 looks at the world of zero emissions motoring with an entirely new approach. Morgan is excited to announce that this prototype version is currently undertaking a full testing and development programme and is expected to go into production towards the end of 2016. A single rear electric motor provides 45kw of power and the overall weight is less than its combustion based counterpart at 450kg. Range is expected to be approximately 150 miles.”
Prototype was presented at the Goodwood Festival of Speed and we collected photos to show:
“Debuting at the Festival of Speed, the Morgan EV3 electric 3 Wheeler prototype provided a point of interest and keen conversation at the show. Displayed on the Niche Vehicle Network stand, the EV3 prototype is currently in the first of three phases of development. The next phase will see a small run of production vehicles go into build, all of which will benefit from a restyled front and new wheels.”
If you are curious about the earlier Plus E model from 2012 developed by Morgan, we also found it. Sadly this one didn’t make it to production.
