Morgan Electric Three Wheeler Under Consideration

The Morgan Threewheeler is back and is a hot seller, but the one available right now is not electric.

For Morgan Motor Company, the newly resurgent vehicle with 100 years of tradition (production ended in 1953), the Threewheeler, becomes the firm’s single most popular product and is responsible for 50% of production.

Approximately 500 units a year are made, but as it turns out demand is much higher and customers are waiting months for deliveries.

Not a bad result considering the price of £32,000 (more than $51,000).

It seems that at such price there is plenty of room for battery costs, especially since the pack doesn’t need to be big.

According to some reports, Morgan is considering an electric version of the Threewheeler.  Who knows, maybe it’s worth to try.

Here is a random review of the conventional version:

There is something about the looks though with that V-twin mounted sideways on the front. Similar to the Corbin Roadster, which was a great looking three wheeler as well.

Maybe they could configure the electric motor and converter to still look like a twin on the front? Or how about air cooled batteries in a V-twin configuration?

I was hoping for the exact opposite, as an electric motor could be completely enclosed in a super aero front end, and get less drag and faster acceleration at higher speeds.

Three wheels… less rolling resistance… more range… and looks fun too!

The old original 3 wheeler tended to be owned and thrashed by nutters.(I’ve seen them in action at VSCC meetings) I wonder what sort of person would buy a new electric one?
