New Morgan 3 Wheeler on the Way

British eccentricity?

By Gary S. Vasilash

The current-generation Morgan 3 Wheeler has been in production since 2011. It is ending production this year. There is a new one on its way.

That, presumably, is camo covering, not the paint for the forthcoming Morgan. (Image: Morgan)

Apparently the Morgan Motor Company has been producing vehicular trikes since 1909.

The founder of the company, HFS Morgan, built one for himself and as people saw him rolling along in the Malvern Hills in Worcestershire, which really are steep hills, not just some charming British appellation,  and other people decided it was something they wanted, as well.

Thus, history.

The company built three-wheelers for its first three decades.

Details are scant about the new one.  There will be a Ford three-cylinder engine powering the new one. The company claims the vehicle has undergone the most rigorous testing regime of any of its vehicles.

It is worth noting, however, that there aren’t a whole lot of Morgans.

There are three vehicles in its lineup: 3 Wheeler, Plus Four and Plus Six. About 850 are built each year.
