What is it?
Brilliant, is what it is. At 2016’s Geneva Motor Show Morgan revealed the EV3 – a version of the ubiquitous 3 Wheeler with an electric motor instead of the customary front-mounted V-twin bike engine.
Said e-motor was behind the seats and powered the sole rear-wheel. We were promised “the same handling characteristics as the normal 3 Wheeler”, and that within a couple of years it would actually go on sale alongside the petrol version for around £30,000.
Its core structure was wood – because Morgan – but the body panels were carbon and it had brass cooling fins to keep the e-motor cool. The look, with the offset centre headlight, was inspired by old racing motorcycles. And it was something to look at since there was no shiny engine up front to draw the eye.
