Under the skin of the Morgan EV3

Morgan EV3

Sports car maker Morgan is adding something quite futuristic to its range of traditionally styled roadsters – a battery electric version of its quirky 3 Wheeler called the EV3.

The 3 Wheeler is normally powered by a big American V-twin motorcycle engine, but in electric guise it will have a battery in the nose and an electric motor behind the seats.

For a feature commissioned by Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology International I interviewed engineers from Morgan as well as development partner Potenza Technology.
