The British builder of classic designed cars, Morgan, replaced the V8 in one of their Plus 8′s by a 300 Nm and 95 horsepower electro-engine, calling it the Morgan Plus E!
Despite the electric propulsion, the Morgan comes with a 5 shift gearbox. This ought to give the driver the traditional driving experience. If enough people apply interest this car will be taken into production but with a stronger engine. The manufacturer is working on a 160 horsepower and 300 NM version which should take the car from 0 to 100 km/per hour in 6 seconds! The topspeed would be 185 km/per hour. The morgan will be able to drive 193 km’s on a full set of batteries. This car is presented at the international car convention in Geneva, last week!
