Morgan, the British firm that builds advanced, high-tech sports cars that look like they stepped out of the first half of the last century, is headed to the 2016 Geneva Motor Show with two new additions.
One is a special edition of Morgan’s 4/4, the company’s first car with four wheels. The 4/4 has been in production since 1936, making it 80 years old this year. (Production was suspended during the years of World War II.)
That’s certainly reason to celebrate. Unfortunately, we don’t have any details on the car. However, we can expect it to be a lot like the special edition 4/4 Morgan built to celebrate the car’s 75th anniversary in 2011, which is shown above.
Morgan EV3 electric 3 Wheeler prototype
The second car Morgan will introduce in Geneva will be an electric car. It will be a more advanced version of the EV3 prototype that we saw at last year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed. The EV3 is an all-electric version of Morgan’s famous 3 Wheeler.
The version Morgan will show in Geneva is described as a “production intent” car. Hopefully that means we’ll see the all-electric 3 Wheeler on sale soon. Last year’s prototype had a 60-horsepower electric motor spinning the single rear wheel and was said to be capable of covering 150 miles on a single charge.
The Geneva Motor Show starts March 1. In the meantime, you can learn about some of the other cars appearing by visiting our dedicated hub.
