Loony Morgan 3 Wheeler to end production…for now

Morgan P101 Edition last of the line

To celebrate the last of the line, the limited-to-33 P101 Edition has been revealed, but Morgan says the 3 Wheeler will be back.

Blame the engine. Yep, Morgan has announced it has to kill off its iconic 3 Wheeler because its S&S V-twin engine doesn’t meet strict new emissions laws in Europe.

To give the thing a proper send off, Morgan has announced the release of 33 P101 Edition variants. P101 was the codename given to the project to revive the 3 Wheeler more than a decade ago.

Indeed, the current 3 Wheeler has been with us since 2011 and more than 2500 vehicles have been built since then.

The limited P101 Edition boasts a single-leaf tonneau cover which was first used on the 2016 EV3 concept. The resin cover is golden and translucent which Morgan reckons is reminiscent of 1970s race cars. The Aero-disc wheels are painted to match the main body colour, and there are 9-inch Hella spot lights at the front.

The P101 is priced from £45,000 and all 33 production slots have already been allocated. Production has already begun.

While the 3 Wheeler will cease production next year, Morgan said, “Details of a potential successor to the 3 Wheeler are yet to be announced, and while Morgan can confirm that “the Morgan 3 Wheeler will return”, there will be a break in production”.
