After an initial announcement last August
, and although the brand still keeps the information secret (not announced officially in the press release regarding the Geneva Motor Show) a credible rumor announces the presentation of an innovative Morgan model, an electric Aero fitted with a gearbox, a concept-car/prototype that could go into production if it gets the public’s support!
Zytek Automotive –that designed the drivetrain of the Smart ED- is responsible for the development of the Plus E motor.
For now, the power of the car is unknown but this electric Morgan could be surprising ...
"This is an exciting investigation into the potential for a zero-emissions Morgan with near supercar performance,"
Steve Morris, Morgan's operations director.
Since Zytek builts motors that develop up to 70kW and 300Nm, we can imagine that the Morgan Plus E will receive two (on the axles) or four motors (in-wheel)!
