3 Wheels Electric Car And No Roof. With a strange look




There are plenty of electric cars out there But none of them stand out quite like the new UK1909 vehicle from Morgan Motor
  
The kooky three-wheeled vehicle is the niche British automaker's first foray into the electric-powered market after 107 years of business. The car is reminiscent of the company's first model, another three-wheeler that debuted in 1909. 

The focus of this car is fun and excitement, and not Tesla-style practicality.
CNN Money got exclusive access to drive and film the new car near the company's headquarters in Malvern, which is an hour's drive west from William Shakespeare's birthplace, Stratford-upon-Avon. 

The topless sports car is remarkably loud for an electric vehicle and produces a satisfying "vroom" that's sure to thrill attention-seeking drivers. (Bystanders were suitably agog during CNN Money's test drive.) 

The UK1909 is not the most powerful car, with just 70 horsepower. And its range (150 miles per charge) is limited by its smaller frame and battery storage capacity. 

Morgan cars, which look like they could have been plying England's roads during World War I, are built largely without the assembly line methods and machinery seen at most modern automakers. 

The small, family-owned automaker is only producing 19 UK1909s and selling them exclusively at the London department store Selfridges. The price -- £52,500 ($65,300) -- isn't far off what a Tesla Model S goes for in the U.K.
Despite the limited production run, Morgan insists that electric cars will be a key part of its future. 

Morgan is investing £6 million ($7.5 million) in electric technology and plans to eventually produce larger four-wheel electric models

"We won't necessarily make a large return on selling [UK1909 and] EV3 vehicles. But in doing this campaign we are exploring what it means to produce these cars," said Morgan's head of design, Jonathan Wells. 

"It's a nice way of us gathering momentum as we explore [electric technology] much more significantly further down the line," he said. leaving the people at stake.
