Morgan looks to electrified future with XP-1 development vehicle

  • Morgan is continuing its ongoing development of future EV technology with a new all-electric vehicle project.
  • XP-1 is being used to help develop an understanding of manufacturing EV technology and how to transfer the driving characteristics of internal combustion engine Morgan sports cars into electric.
  • The XP-1 Project is not intended for production but is a test bed for design, manufacturing, and engineering evaluation.
  • XP-1 begins the process of preparing the business for the design, engineering and manufacture of production electric vehicles.

Morgan Motor Company is planning its electric future and sharing details of a new development vehicle that will act as the forerunner to all future electric Morgan sports cars. Referred to as ‘XP-1’, the experimental prototype will provide key information to the engineers and designers at Morgan as they embark on creating the company’s first production electric models. Developed over the last 12 months by Morgan’s team of engineers based in Malvern, Worcestershire, XP-1 is based on Super 3’s aluminium platform.
