Morgan EV3 Junior for Mini EV Enthusiasts

The Morgan EV3 is the stuff of eco-conscious gearhead dreams. The ultra lightweight trike is capable of sprinting to 60 MPH in under 8 seconds with a top speed of over 100 MPH. It’s no Ludicrous-speed Tesla, sure- but the bantamweight EV was always about motoring. And, for that purpose, it has no equal. Or, it didn’t, until Morgan launched this: the Morgan EV3 Junior.

As far as motorcars go, the EV3 Junior is as finely crafted as any. It’s not just an expensive Power Wheels, in other words- it features a carbon fiber composite body, real wooden dash, and hand-stitched, leather upholstered seating. The suspension, too, is made of high-quality bits that would seem at home on a high-end bike, at least.

    The Morgan EV3 Junior

    In 2016, Morgan announced their first production electric vehicle. Capable of 100mph and 0-60 in 8 seconds, and still entirely coach-built, the EV3 has received great acclaim from motoring press and enthusiasts alike following its launch at the Geneva Motor Show.

    Morgan continues to celebrate this new chapter in their manufacturing history by announcing the arrival of the EV3 Junior targeting aspiring young Morgan owners! The EV3 Junior is entirely handmade and features a carbon fiber body, wooden dashboard and hand stitched leather interior.

    The EV3 Junior is capable of travelling at 16 kph (about 10 MPH) in forward, and in reverse at a limited speed. A choice of Sport Red, Sport Green or Sport Ivory paint, with black or tan leather, is offered as standard. Any paint color from Morgan’s range of 40,000 can also be selected at a small cost. Further customization is offered with fun sticker packs which can be applied and re-applied as desired.

    Other features include working lights and authentic enamel badge detailing. Charging is carried out by the charger provided and takes 4 hours. An average range of 10 miles can be achieved depending on driving style. Morgan cars are known for being lightweight and small, however the EV3 Junior is smaller than most and therefore is only suitable for children over the age of 6. The EV3 Junior is (also) fully CE certified.
