The strong interest shown in the Morgan Threewheeler shows that there is a huge demand for quality and innovative British designed and engineered products, according to company boss Charles Morgan.
Speaking to Autocar at the Threewheeler’s UK launch at Salon Privé, Morgan said 480 deposits had already been taken for the £30k motorised tricycle and this would help Morgan top 1000 sales in 2011.
Last year, the firm made 740 cars and Morgan is considering further increasing production to keep up with demand.
The majority of orders for the Threewheeler have come from abroad, said Morgan, and this was down to “a greater confidence of products manufactured in the UK”.
He also believes that, as a concept, the Threewheeler could still be relevant in 100 years. "Cars are too fast for normal use," said Morgan. "This is fast but the real joy is in its acceleration - and it still does 50mpg. As a concept this could last 100 years and should be made for many years to come."
