Morgan LIFECar2 diesel-electric hybrid announced

Morgan has announced plans to introduce a production version of the LIFECar concept.

While details are limited, the LIFEcar2 will feature a diesel-electronic hybrid powertrain jointly developed with three British universities (Birmingham City, Oxford, and Cranfield). The car will weigh less than 800kg (1,764 lbs), travel up to 15 miles (24 km) on electricity-alone, accelerate from 0-60 mph in 7 seconds, and cost approximately £40,000.

In related news, Charles Morgan told Autocar the LIFEcar2 will be joined by a "fun weekend vehicle." No other information was released, but both models in addition to the recently unveiled EvaGT are expected within the next three years.
