Morgan EV3 Three Wheel Electric Vehicle, an independent British bespoke car manufacturer with a long tradition of keeping true to its design heritage, build three wheel electric vehicle complying with its 1930s flair – the “EV3”.
It will be the first production electric vehicle to be built by the company and takes shape in an entirely different perspective. The “EV3” embraces technology, delivers a unique driving excitement and continues to celebrate traditional British craftsmanship.
Weighing less than 500 kilograms, the all-electric three wheeler has a 20 KWh lithium battery with a range of 242 kilometers. Encased within the tubular space frame made of carbon fiber panels is a water cooled 46kW motor driving the rear wheel.
The body construction utilizes a carbon bonnet, a protective cover, side pads and aluminum panels, all of which are hand worked over an ash wood frame.
Their 1930s traditions, the face of the “EV3” is designed to function. Brass conductive coolings fins surround the batteries and an off-centre tri-bar headlight adds to the overall asymmetry of the design. An entirely fresh dashboard arrangement features a classic “magneto” switch for drive selection, a digital screen, wood, brass and polished aluminum. Morgan plan to put the “EV3” into production in the late 2016.
