Morgan isn't typically one to embrace change. The company is still proudly building a V-Twin three-wheeler and sawing components from trees, but the Morgan Plus E on display at the Geneva Motor Show is a clear step into the blinding light of the future.

The vehicle features the automaker's next-generation aluminum chassis as well as a 94-horsepower electric motor. If you're frowning at the lack of gusto on hand, allow us to point out two figures. First, the Zytek electric motor cranks out 221 pound-feet of torque from the instant you breathe on the accelerator. Second, the Plus E tips the scales at a relatively light 2,755 pounds.

Batteries, controllers and the like are housed under the traditional bi-hinged hood, and a five-speed manual transmission puts power from the electric motor to the rear wheels. Morgan claims the vehicle can clip off a 62 mph run in a quick-enough six seconds, and top speed sits at around 115 mph. While there's a 120-mile range with the Plus E, there's no word on how long it will take to charge the machine. Likewise, Morgan isn't saying whether or not the vehicle will make it to production.Continue reading Morgan Plus E is all aluminum and fully electric
