Morgan Plus E is a modern electromobile which as if has been let out in the middle of the twentieth century. It has rather the vintage appearance – angular lines of the case, the big taken out wheels, a rag leaning back roof. For a basis of appearance for electromobile Morgan Plus E the design of car Morgan Plus 8 which were issued since 1968 year is taken. Here only materials (the car became much easier and stronger) and the engine were replaced.
In the Morgan Plus E is installed an 70-kilowatt electric motor from the company Zytek, which makes it a retro-car “green”, environmentally friendly and very economical. In the car there will be a five-speed transmission.In that variant Morgan Plus E which has been presented on Geneva the Motor show of 2012 year, the car works from lithium-ion batteries batteries.
