Morgan’s EV3 offsets carbon emissions... and its headlight
Back to the future
The removal of the 3 Wheeler’s V-twin engine has resulted in an attractive softly styled front end, housing an off-centre third headlight and solid brass bars that are as functional as they are attractive. Beneath, there’s a water-cooled electric motor that sends power to the single rear wheel, developing 62bhp. The 20kWh lithium batteries are allegedly good for 150 miles of range, and the car is 25kg lighter than the petrol-powered 3 Wheeler thanks to the use of composite carbon panels, a first for Morgan. Inside there are digital instruments for the charge level and remaining range, and a novel drive-selector switch akin to something found in a World War II fighter plane. Expect the EV3 to cost a touch more than the regular 3 Wheeler when it arrives at the end of the year.
