Morgan’s display at the Geneva Motor Show 2017 includes the Morgan UK1909 EV3, an all-electric version of its iconic three-wheeler. It was originally announced midway through last year as a special edition created in partnership with British department store Selfridges. We took a closer look at the example Morgan brought to Geneva.
The 1909 Edition was first unveiled at Salon Prive last year. Only 19 will be produced. The name signifies the yer that both Morgan and Selfridges were founded. The car can be ordered with a bespoke driving kit designed in collaboration with nine other British brands. It include a driving scarf designed by Alexander McQueen, driving goggles from Linda Farrow, and driving gloves by Dents.
The Morgan UK1909 EV3 is presented in black with Selfridges bronze detailing. It gets wood and treated aluminium throughout the interior. The powerplant includes a 20KWh Lithium Battery and a liquid cooled 46kW motor driving the rear wheel. It’s not the fastest car on display at Geneva, it has a 0-100 km/h time of below than 9 seconds and a top speed in excess of 90mph. It is certainly one of the more unique though!
