We were impressed when Morgan unveiled the production version of its all-electric 3-wheeler, the EV 3, at the 2016 Geneva Motor show earlier this year. The vehicle hit the mark in term of design and proved one of the most satisfying car developed by the company, which is known for its rich history of iconic car designs.
Now the company is releasing the first few vehicles in a limited edition, which is updated with minor changes from the production version unveiled earlier this year.
The limited production is in partnership with Selfridges and only 19 vehicles will be produced. Autoblog reports on the changes from the production version:
“Morgan’s first production version of the EV3 takes the form of this Selfridges Edition model. Happily, the car brings over most of the sleek design features of the Geneva show car with minor changes. The car now features two lights in the grille, solid disc wheels, rear-view mirrors, a natty windscreen and splash-guards over the wheels. This model also doesn’t seem to have the hard passenger seat cover and adds an additional roll hoop for the passenger.”
The automaker released a video showcasing what its calls the Morgan EV3 3UK1909 Selfridges Edition:
A regular production is expected to follow after this limited-edition.
The Morgan EV3 is expected to achieve a range of 150 miles a 20 kWh battery pack. It weights less than 500 kg (1,100 lb) thanks to its composite carbon panels in its body construction. The vehicle is powered by a 46 kW motor driving the rear wheel and It can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in less than 9 seconds with a top speed in “excess of 90 mph”.
The regular production should look closer to what was unveiled in March:
