Bri­tish trike builder Morgan is sell­ing the first 19 all-elec­tric trikes through Sel­fridges, priced from £52 500 (about R985 000). Dubbed the EV3 UK 1909 edi­tion, this col­lectible Morgan has all the fu­tur­is­tic nos­tal­gia de­sign el­e­ments that will make it a hit at any steam­punk event. Morgan said the trike, with its bronze de­tail­ing on the wood and treated alu­minium in­te­rior, can go for 240 km on a charge and has a top speed of 140 km/h. Tai­lored driv­ing clothes can also be or­dered, from gloves and gog­gles to a silk scarf and jack­ets with 18th cen­tury cuts.
