The iconic and electric Morris JE has made its public debut at the Fully Charged Live event.
This was the first opportunity for members of the public to see the beautiful and timeless appearance of the van, which is a 21st century re-imagining of the famous 1950’s Morris J-Type.
Morris Commercial Limited, based in Worcestershire, is reviving the famous and much-loved ‘Morris’ name in a truly unique fashion. Fully designed and engineered in Britain, the automotive engineering company is pioneering a new approach to carbon-neutral transport, by combining an innovative modular skateboard architecture and ultra-lightweight recycled carbon-fibre body construction with iconic British design.
Morris Commercial has been exhibiting alongside the Electric Vehicle Association (EVA) England, an organisation that provides access to information, support, and products to improve the EV owner experience, and increases the opportunity for discussion within the EV community, according to Qu Li, Founder and CEO at Morris Commercial.
“We’re delighted to be partnering with the EVA England at the event as it is an organisation that shares our passion and commitment to EV drivers and owners,” he said.
The Morris JE sits within the 2.5 tonne segment – the lightest sector in the commercial vehicle market – but it boasts an impressive 1,000kg payload and 6m³ load volume, which is more typical of vehicles in the larger 3.5 tonne market segment.
The lightweight carbon-fibre and aluminium construction, which are both recycled and recyclable, allows for a range in excess of 200 miles and makes the Morris JE an appealing solution for urban deliveries.
The company said that the EV is designed for customers and businesses that crave individuality. The vehicle’s stunning and distinctive aesthetics will provide a perfect and eye-catching mobile marketing solution. Combined with the beautiful British craftmanship, the vehicle is engineered with the driver’s comfort and well-being as two of its core values.
