Theis what’s recognized, in extremely technical phrases, as a Really Cool Car. Morgan received our hearts aflutter when it introduced plans to convey an electric model to market, however based on new super-duper-sad stories, the so-called EV3 is not more likely to ever go on sale.
“Our current EV powertrain supplier is no longer able to fulfill the project within the terms of the contract,” Morgan’s managing director, Steve Morris, told Autocar in an interview this week. That stated, Morris insists Morgan is “absolutely committed to an electric future.”
Frazer-Nash Energy Systems is the provider in query, Morris telling Autocar he had “expected Frazer-Nash to deliver a turn-key powertrain for the EV3.”
A spokesperson for Frazer-Nash, in the meantime, advised Autocar the settlement failed “for a number of contractual reasons.”
The Morgan EV3 first debuted at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, and we noticed a really particular —— UK 1909 Selfridges version at the Swiss expo in 2017. The EV3 replaces the customary Three-Wheeler’s 2.Zero-liter V-twin bike engine with a liquid-cooled electric motor that produces about 62 horsepower. That does not sound like lots, however take into accout this contraption solely weighs about 1,100 kilos. And with prompt electric torque and your butt only some inches off the highway, we think about it might be a hell of a hilarious toy.
Sadly, we might by no means know.
