The Morgan 1909 Edition EV3 will make its global public debut at Salon Privé, which takes place once again at Blenheim Palace from the 1st to the 3rd of September. Launched in conjunction with Selfridges, alongside nine other iconic British brands, just 19 bespoke, handmade Morgan UK 1909 Edition EV3s will be available for sale. The car, which comes with a bespoke driving kit from British design talents, is priced at £52,500. The driving kit includes items from Alexander McQueen, Dents and Belstaff and includes driving shoes, gloves, jacket, scarf, waterproof overalls, and more.
The name signifies both Morgan and Selfridges’ birth years, 1909, with 19 signifying the number of cars due to be created by the two iconic British brands. Designed to be a collector’s item, the limited edition EV3 blends Morgan’s engineering know-how and iconic design with Selfridges’ famous flair for fashion. The retro-futuristic sports car combines British style and elegance in a handcrafted body with zero-emission technology. Morgan says the all-electric 3-Wheeler has a range of up to 150 miles and a top speed of 90 mph.
In the transition from concept to production, the EV3 kept a lot of its quirky charms. The car now features two lights in the grille, solid disc wheels, rear-view mirrors, a windscreen and splash-guards over the wheels. This model also doesn’t seem to have the hard passenger seat cover and adds an additional roll hoop for the passenger.
Morgan Motor Company’s head of design Jon Wells said: “Great British design, technology and engineering is what the UK 1909 Edition EV3 is all about. We’re delighted to be able to show the car to the world’s press and publicly unveil at Salon Privé in September. Salon Privé combines style, luxury lifestyle and cars in one event, just like the UK 1909 Edition EV3 does, too!”
