This amazing combination of retro look and newest technologies is called Electric Plus E running on electric energy. British automaker Morgan has unveiled their newest concept, the Electric Plus E, at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. With design based on the Morgan Plus 8, the Electric Plus E was fitted with a Zytek electric motor and a lithium-ion battery, two power sources that allow the vehicle to travel up to 120 miles on just a single charge. The Morgan Plus E Concept produces an output of 160 horsepower and 280 lb/ft of torque while mated to a five-speed manual transmission. These figures allow it to travel from 0-62 mph in 6.0 seconds with a top speed of 115 mph.
“We wanted to see how much fun you can have in an electric sports car, so we have built one to help us find out. The Plus E combines Morgan’s traditional look with high-technology construction and a power train that delivers substantial torque instantly at any speed. With the manual gearbox to increase both touring range and driver involvement, it will be a fantastic car to drive,” explained Morgan operations director Steve Morris.
