A limited edition version of the new (not yet released) Morgan three-wheeler electric vehicle will go on sale at the department store Selfridges this November, according to recent reports.
There will apparently only be 19 of the special edition versions of the all-electric three-wheeler built, all of which will only be purchasable at Selfridges’ Oxford Street department store.
So, those of you interested should keep that in mind, and head down there without too much delay once they’re there (if you are in this region of the world). Those who want one will have to drop £52,500 on the 3-wheeler, though, so it certainly won’t come cheap. Delivery estimates for those who do purchase one are currently sometime in the second half of next year.
Business Green provides more: “The 1909 Edition cars — named after the year both firms were founded — will be the first zero-emissions all-electric vehicle to be sold by the iconic automaker. With a charge time of 4 hours and an expected range of 120 to 150 miles, the two-seater car will have a top speed of around 90 mph. The limited edition car is a bespoke version of Morgan’s all-electric EV3 unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year.”
In a conversation with the Guardian, the head of design at Morgan, Jon Wells, noted: “Selfridges is a big machine and we are a relative minnow. But we got together after taking some senior staff on one of our factory visits and discovered we had a lot in common.”
The buying and merchandising director at Selfridges, Sebastian Manes, commented as well: “The development of this limited edition of Morgan’s forthcoming all-electric car has been a wonderful experience from start to finish, and we can’t wait to see what response the car aficionados among our customers will give this unique and exciting collaboration. We have never done anything with cars before and hopefully this is the start of a long-term collaboration.”
