Long after the rest of the world has moved on, Morgan is still staunchly standing by the old-fashioned way of doing things. The boutique manufacturer's cars combine modern powertrains with wood and aluminum chassis' and its latest creation is no different. The limited edition AR Plus 4 combines classic Morgan values with a motorsport inspired Cosworth motor to celebrate 65 years since the launch of the original Plus 4.
Morgan, the family-owned British car manufacturer that still uses wood in the frames of its hand-assembled cars, has announced hybrid powertrains will be offered across its entire range by the end of the decade.
Looking for a cleaner three-wheeler to commute with but not up to pedaling your own way? Around the same time we were translating Russian to bring you the story of the Ekomobil, Morgan was revealing its second all-electric roadster at the 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed. Morgan re-powers its classically styled 3 Wheeler with a battery pack and electric drive to create the EV3. The new prototype utilizes the 3 Wheeler platform's lightweight construction for a peppy all-electric ride and range of 150 miles (241 km).
The Morgan Threewheeler
is definitely a unique vehicle, although with prices starting just shy
of £30,000 (about US$47,000) ... well, it ain't cheap. That said, if
it's mainly just the look of the thing that you like, you might
consider saving quite a few bucks and going with the human/electric
hybrid replica now being offered by Minsk-based Ekomobil.
