Zytek and Morgan Concoct Electric Car for Geneva Show

major auto brands as Lamborghini, Audi and Hyundai the initial enthusiasm expected for the Geneva Motor Show, the of this Swiss exhibition attracts the likes of smaller firms.

Typically, full cars will not require the for a transmission based on the fact motors generate maximum at zero RPMs. The Morgan E contends that an all-electric involving a five-speed manual could have some performance advantages.

Zytek Automotive managing Neil Heslington said, A transmission allows the motor to more time operating in its spot, where it uses more efficiently, particularly at road speeds, . The five-speed transmission on the Morgan Plus E is said to provide stellar over similar single-speed vehicles. Functioning just a conventional manual-shifting gearbox the driver engaging a clutch at the Morgan Plus E does not application of the clutch when from a stop or slowing. also implies the engineering in merging a five-speed manual an electric motor could the door to future developments.
