Following an announcement made last week, Morgan has introduced the EV3 prototype at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Currently in an advanced prototype stage, the fully electric Morgan comes with a rear-mounted electric motor delivering 101 bhp (75 kW) and weighs 25 kg (55 lbs) more than a conventional-powered 3 Wheeler which means it tips the scales at a mere 550 kg (1,212 lbs). The on-board battery pack has enough juice to grant a maximum range of 150 miles (241 km) and after being depleted it can be fully charged in four hours.

Performance numbers are not available at this point, but Morgan says they want the EV3 to be just about as quick as the regular version which completes the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in 6 seconds. While the 3 Wheeler can reach a maximum speed of 115 mph (185 km/h), its electric sibling will be electronically-limited to 80 mph (129 km/h).

It's scheduled to go on sale towards the end of next year and Morgan says it will cost roughly the same as a well-equipped 3 Wheeler so it will probably be available for more than £30,000.
