Comments Off on Meet Morgan’s New Experimental XP-1
We are proud to reveal the latest vehicle to break cover from Morgan’s engineering department, a new all-electric development project, XP-1.
XP-1 will act as the forerunner to all future electric Morgan sports cars, the experimental prototype will provide key information to Morgan’s engineers and designers as they embark on the development of the company’s first production electric models. The striking prototype is not intended for production but has been created to enhance thinking in several key areas including driving characterisation, powertrain development, in-house EV competence and training, and new feature ideation and testing. Following 12 months of design and build, XP-1 will now embark on a comprehensive testing programme over the next 18-24 months.

Comments Off on Bring The Colour To Morgan This Summer
With the introduction of Morgan Plus models in November 2022, we provided even more ability for customers to tailor their dream Morgan. For decades, we have famously – and proudly – allowed customers to order vehicles in any paint colour imaginable, over 40,000 in fact. And with 40 different interior trim and carpet options on Plus models, there is an almost endless combination of colourways and options available, ensuring every customer can create a true “one-off”.
In a quest for colour, we are inviting new customers to embrace their inner creative when specifying a new Plus Four or Plus Six this summer, with a full choice of paint and interior trim options included as standard.
Until September 30th, all Plus Four and Plus Six orders will benefit from a range of options at no additional cost. [...]
Comments Off on The 2023 Morgan Plus Four is a surprisingly modern mountaineer

It’s barely six degrees Fahrenheit at the summit of the Julier Pass. Visibility is zero, a full-blown whiteout. The edges of the road are practically invisible with the blizzard sending horizontal sheets across the windscreen. Snow ceaselessly accumulates onto the asphalt.
I’m the first person outside of the factory to be allowed behind the wheel of this updated 2023 Plus Four, and I briefly wonder whether perhaps we’re both a little too far out of our comfort zones. It may well be the most extreme test the roadster has ever been through. At the very least I suspect it is a situation in which precious few owners of Morgan’s latest Plus Four will find themselves.
This is, after all, a machine meant for pleasure [...]
Comments Off on DRONE FLIGHT GIVES NEW PERSPECTIVE OF THE MORGAN FACTORY
For the first time ever, a drone has taken flight around the historic home of Morgan at Pickersleigh Road. The 108-year-old factory – which welcomes around 30,000 visitors each year – is famed for being home to the production of the Morgan Plus Four and Plus Six, and will shortly be the site where the company’s all-new three-wheeled model will be produced.

Anyone who has been in this Morgan World for any length of time knows that its orbit will sweep in great circles but end up back where it started; again and again….and again. I bought my first Morgan in 1972 in Los Angeles, California. LA is a funny place in many respects. South Pasadena, where I lived at the time, is way out to the north east of the city and Long Beach is a bazillion miles to the south west; but miles in LA don’t seem to matter. A 50 mile drive to go to a movie was not uncommon so it seemed perfectly reasonable for me to drive from Pasadena to Long Beach for Morgan Plus Four Club of Southern California meetings. Unfortunately that first Morgan, and the several that followed it, were not paragons of reliability so I never really integrated with the club. But I did meet people; Morgan people, like [...]
Morgan is working on an all-new high-performance sports car flagship that will both reinforce its reputation for classic design and move it on a couple of decades, notionally into the Jaguar E-Type era.
The new car, which will be made in both coupé and roadster forms, follows several years of research into what a traditionally minded 109-year-old car company should do next, without threatening its successful classic model range. It is being created in-house by design and engineering teams that now total around 30 people as a result of recent, well-targeted investment.
The new hand-made flagship’s first iteration is understood to be a two-door, two-seat coupé that should appear in the mid-2020s, estimated to be priced near the level of an Aston Martin V8 Vantage. It will use a new architecture with the classic Morgan front-engine, rear-drive layout and continue the marque’s tradition for compact dimensions and light weight, while utilising the latest in chassis [...]
Morgan Motor Company celebrates 100 years on Pickersleigh Road.
Many automakers can make claims about their heritage and old-world craftsmanship, but few can back up those claims quite like the Morgan Motor Company. Not only does Morgan still produce a range of ash wood-framed sports cars by hand alongside three-wheelers that are remarkably similar to Morgan’s Runabouts of the 1930s, but it does so in a factory built by Morgan in 1914. Though the Morgan Motor Company celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2012, this year marks yet another milestone: the 100th anniversary of the Pickersleigh Road works.
n 1905, Henry Frederick Stanley Morgan (Harry to his friends, or simply H.F.S.) opened the Morgan & Company Garage and Motor Works on Worcester Road in Malvern Link, Worcestershire, England, in what was originally an automotive repair facility and automobile dealership. By 1909, H.F.S. Morgan had constructed his [...]
