Morgan confirms all-new three-wheeled model

Morgan Motor Company has confirmed it is working on an all-new three-wheeled vehicle to replace the outgoing Morgan 3 Wheeler.

An early glimpse of the model shows a heavily disguised engineering prototype undergoing durability testing.

Whilst a name is not confirmed for the new three-wheeled model, it will be defined by an all-new design, adventurous character, and significant engineering advancements.

In particular, the vehicle will take inspiration from the many owners of the outgoing model that have embraced adventure travel and touring, and whose incredible journeys have reached all corners of the globe.

Many details on the new model are yet to be announced but the use of an internal combustion engine has beeb confirmed.

Specifically, a naturally aspirated inline three-cylinder Ford engine, which continues the company’s long-standing use of Ford powerplants.

Orders for the previous Morgan 3 Wheeler – which started production in 2011 – closed at the beginning of 2021, with production of these vehicles taking place throughout the year.

This includes the final 33 P101 cars, which saw a number of cosmetic enhancements to celebrate the end of the model’s highly successful ten-year production run.

Morgan’s three wheelers date back to the founding of the company in 1909, when its founder, HFS Morgan, built a three-wheeled vehicle to transport him around the Malvern Hills.

It immediately proved popular and spawned many variants over the coming decades.

In fact, it wasn’t until nearly thirty years into the firm’s history that it would start producing four-wheeled cars.

Steve Morris, chairman and CEO of Morgan Motor Company, said: “We are thrilled to confirm plans for an all-new three-wheeled Morgan, a model that continues an incredible story dating back to 1909.

“The outgoing 3 Wheeler was adored by customers and enthusiasts alike, and will inspire this next generation.

“The upcoming model is an all-new ground-up design and the first whole vehicle programme to be completed under the stewardship of Investindustrial.

“Morgan’s team of engineers and designers have considered everything that the company has learnt from the decade of building and selling the previous model.

“We look forward to sharing more about this exciting new vehicle in due course.”
