Morgan EV 3…..zero to 100kmh in 9 seconds

Iconic British motoring marque Morgan has showcased an EV version of its famous three-wheeler at the Geneva Motor Show.

Instead of the V-twin motorcycle engine at the front of the vehicle the EV3, as it is called, displays part of the battery and a single headlight.

Morgan’s EV3 has a 46KW electric motor powered by a front-mounted 20kWh lithium-ion battery.

The three wheeler weighs in at around 500 kilograms and has a top speed of around 150 kmh, accelerating from a standing dart to 100 kmh in nine seconds, compared to under six seconds for the petrol driven version.

Range is around 240 kilometres between charges, and charging from a household source takes around 8 hours.

Carbon fibre is used to keep down the weight, but underneath is still the same ash wood frame Morgan has been using for decades.
