British automaker Morgan Motor Company confirmed that a prototype model electric 3 Wheeler, the Morgan EV3 concept, will be shown at the Goodwood Festival of Speed later this month.
The Morgan EV3 concept is the second full electric vehicle produced by the Morgan Motor Company. Following the Plus E, the EV3 is based on the standard Morgan 3 Wheeler that was reintroduced back in 2011.
Bespoke to order, hand crafted and most of all fun, the EV3 looks at the world of zero emissions motoring with an entirely new approach. Morgan announced that this prototype version is currently undertaking a full testing and development programme and is expected to go into production towards the end of 2016.
A single rear electric motor provides 75kw of power and the overall weight is less than its combustion based counterpart at 450kg. Range is expected to be approximately 150 miles.
The Morgan EV3 first prototype will be on show later this month at the Goodwood Festival of Speed as part of the Niche Vehicle Network stand (Permier row, stand 7).[wzslider height=”400″ lightbox=”true”]
