What should I be paying?
This feels like a redundant section as 3 Wheeler production winds down (in its current guise, at least) and all 33 run-out P101s have sold already, despite their £55,000 tag. That still made it the entry point of the Morgan range, though – while this has graduated notably from being a 30 grand car, the Plus Four that sits above it has rocketed further north and tops £70,000 with a mere side-glance at its options list. Fewer wheels still means less money at Malvern.
What’s safe to assume is that anyone who has bought a 3 Wheeler is unlikely to lose money. Those who buy them cling onto them. And then reluctantly sell them for more money than they cost new. Just a couple of recent-gen 3 Wheelers are in the classifieds as we speak, commanding about 50 per cent more cash than they’ll have cost new.
Perhaps it’ll be easier getting your name down for the next-gen 3 Wheeler, due some time in 2022. Morgan is tight-lipped about what form it’ll take, but it won’t be an electric car like the EV3 concept we saw a few years ago. It’ll likely nab some styling inspiration from it, though, and logic would suggest it’ll use a smaller BMW-sourced engine than the Plus Four and Plus Six that'll sit above it. There’s a 1.5-litre 3cyl turbo in Minis and 1 Series that might just fit a treat. Here’s hoping Morgan coaxes plenty of character out of whichever engine it fits…
