The Morgan Company has been teasing about a new entrant into the EV car sector and they recently unveiled their contender at the 2016 Geneva International Motor Show. The company has not been known to make subtle looking vehicles, so what better way to display their EV technology than to put it all into their three-wheeled roadster.

The Morgan EV3, being built on the three-wheeled platform, is a great way to introduce EV technology to the market place. The vehicle itself is small and relatively light weight having overall less components to it that its four wheeled counterparts. The EV3 weighs in at a mere 1000lbs and uses a 63hp electric motor.

Additional weight savings all around can be in thanks to am ample use of carbon fiber. The light weight material can be found on the hood, tonneau cover and side panels. The EV3 also doesn’t have a roof which just helps with weight management. The EV3 gets a 150 mile range on a full charge and will do 0-100km/h in just under nine seconds. The EV3 won’t be breaking any top speed records either as it reaches a top velocity of 90mph.

Production of the EV3 will begin later this year and we hope to see it in showrooms before the end of 2016. Prices will start at around $42,000 USD.
