Morgan pulls plug on EV3
After several years of development, and a number of delays hindering the project, Morgan officially is discontinuing the EV3 electric three-wheeler. Speaking with Autoblog, a company spokesman said the company isn’t giving up on electrification entirely.
The EV3 was to have a 21kWh lithium-ion battery pack powering a 35kW (47hp) motor and offering up to 193km of driving range. Ongoing issues with the company’s battery supplier ultimately led to the project's demise.
Morgan’s new aluminium CX architecture first used in the Plus Four could act as the basis for the firm’s next EV and has been described as battery friendly by lead designer Jonathan Wells. What remains unclear at this point is when that new battery-powered vehicle will finally arrive.
