Bad news comes to those looking forward to the Morgan EV3, the electric three-wheeler under development by Morgan. The project has been put on hold after a supplier contract failing.
Managing director Steve Morris announced the vehicle has been put on an indefinite hold when supplier Frazer-Nash was "no longer able to fulfill the project within the terms of the contract." Morris claims that the inconsistent progress on the EV3 has taught the company a great deal about developing an electric powertrain, and he remains hopeful for an electric future all the same.
The Morgan EV3 was initially revealed at the 2016 Geneva motor show, where it had an expected launch in 2017. The project was delayed after their first supplier fell through and started back up when Frazer-Nash stepped in. The single seat vehicle is specced to have a 21-kWh lithium-ion battery sending power to the 56 horsepower electric motor.
If you really want the vehicle, they still sell the gasoline variant. Otherwise, you may have to opt for the Vanderhall Edison squared. It features two AC motors and a 30-kWh lithium-ion battery pack. With a 200 mile range and 180 horsepower, it's a fair alternative to the Morgan EV3.
