The Morgan EV3 is set to begin production later this year. The three-wheeled car/motorcycle is the first electric vehicle from Morgan. While adults are sure to enjoy the EV3's 1,100 lb curb weight and 7 second 0-60 mph time, the British automaker has something in store for younger and aspiring Morgan owners: the new EV3 Junior.
The Morgan EV3 Junior is a scaled-down version of the standard EV3 electric trike, built for children above the age of 6. Like the big-boy Morgan, the EV3 Junior is assembled by hand, using genuine carbon fiber, leather and wood. It comes in red, green or ivory, but for a little more money, you can pick from one of Morgan's 40,000 available colors. The leather can be had in either black or tan, because what's the fun of customizing the interior alone? There are also sticker packs for further customization.
Of course, it doesn't use the same electric motor, but the smaller unit in the EV3 Junior still exhibits plenty of hustle. It'll rush silently up to a top speed of 10 mph, which is significantly higher than most other ride-on toys, like the Tesla Model S for Kids. The range is approximately 10 miles, which is pretty darn far for a 6-year-old to be traveling by his or her lonesome. When the battery eventually depletes, it'll take 4 hours to charge completely.
