Morgan Unveil Plus E Concept Revealed at Geneva

Electric Car

With enough customer interest, the electric Plus E concept could make it to production.

Primarily designed to gauge customer interest, the Plus E concept prototype is essentially a Plus 8 but with a Zytek electric motor and lithium-ion battery. On a single charge, it can travel up to 120 miles. The motor develops 94hp and 221lb-ft of torque, and is mated to a five-speed manual transmission enabling the 1,250kg roadster to accelerate from 0-62mph in 6.0 seconds and hit a 115mph top speed with power going to the rear wheels.

"We wanted to see how much fun you can have in an electric sportscar, so we have built one to help us find out," explained Morgan operations director Steve Morris. "The Plus E combines Morgan's traditional look with high-technology construction and a powertrain that delivers substantial torque instantly at any speed. With the manual gearbox to increase both touring range and driver involvement, it will be a fantastic car to drive."
