Morgan EV3- This Classic Three-Wheeler Just Turned Electric
The modern three-wheeler from British manufacturer Morgan traces its history back to the very earliest days of the auto industry, but there’s nothing old about its latest model. This EV3 is based on the standard Morgan ‘3 wheeler’ that was reintroduced back in 2011.
Made to order, the automobile looks at the world of zero emissions motoring with a modern day approach. A single rear electric motor provides 75 kilo watts and the overall weight is less than its combustion based counterpart at 450 kilograms. A claimed 150-mile range, which is a whole lot better than just about any roadgoing EV on the market right now shy of a Tesla. Currently the mock-up version is undertaking full testing and a development program, and is expected to go into production towards the end of 2016.
This three-wheeler looks a big snug, but would be a great car for a weekend getaway.
It premieres at the Goodwood Festival of Speed later this month before going into production late next year.
