British motoring company Morgan just announced plans to produce an all-electric version of their classic, sporty 3 Wheeler. The EV3 concept is the second electric vehicle from Morgan, and it’s based on the 3 Wheeler track car reintroduced by the company in 2011—over 100 years after H.F.S. Morgan created his first three-wheeled car as a personal runabout.
The EV3 concept maintains much of the look of its gas-guzzling cousin, but is equipped with a single rear electric motor that provides 45kW of power—around 100hp. There’s little to no information on the battery pack, or where it will be located, but the total weight of the vehicle comes to 450kg, which is less than the current 2.0 liter V-Twin engine version.
A prototype is currently undergoing testing, and Morgan expects the range will be around 150 miles. This prototype will debut at the Goodwood Festival in West Sussex, England, and is expected to go into production in late 2016. As with all of Morgan’s bespoke cars, it will be crafted by hand, and available on a made-to-order basis, providing what may be a contender for the ultimate in fun, stylish electric transportation.
