Morgan to unveil electric 3 Wheeler ~ Birmingham Post

‘The EV3 is a prototype electric version of the Morgan 3 Wheeler, a vehicle which helped redefine the marque when it was launched in 2011′

This electric three wheeler is currently going through testing, and is expected to go into production late 2016.

‘It gets its first outing on the Niche Vehicle Network stand at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in West Sussex, which runs from June 25-28. The original 3 Wheeler was launched at the same event four years ago and within just a few months became a best seller for the company with 500 orders taken.Speaking to the Post at the time, its designer Matthew Humphries said the bulging order book was โ€œway more than expectedโ€

The 3 Wheeler represented something of a revival for Morgan as it was inspired by a cyclecar launched in 1910 which first got the company going. Mr Humphries described it as โ€œA bespoke British sports car thatโ€™s taking a lot of influence from the original on which it is based โ€“ aircraft from that time and indeed anything from the 30s or 40s’ (Taken from the Birmingham Post Article linked below)
