2016 Morgan EV3

Steampunk hipsters rejoice. British carmaker Morgan Motor Co. unleashed the ultimate retro machine at this year’s Geneva Motor Show with the EV3, the manufacturer’s first electric vehicle. Blending modernist virtues with vintage cosmetics, the EV3 is based on the company’s existing petrol-powered Morgan Three-Wheeler. Here, instead of a gasoline engine under the hood lies a liquid-cooled 46 KW electric motor powered by a 20kWh battery.

Now while this battery pack doesn’t sound like it packs a lot of punch, its lightweight body (1100 lbs) enables it to hit 0-60 in 9 seconds and a top speed of 90mph. Upon closer inspection of the EV3, you’ll notice the design inspiration from classic aero engine cars and motorcycles of the 1930s. Also featuring an off-centered headlight, observers are hard pressed to believe this three-wheeler was built in the 21st century. But then again, they did like the style before it was cool. Production is set to begin in the fourth quarter of 2016. [Purchase]
