Iconic British van to make electric return

16 October 2019

A UK-based automotive engineering and manufacturing start-up has revealed plans to launch a new electric LCV based on the classic British design of the Morris J-type van.

The new Morris JE by Morris Commercial will feature a state-of-the-art, full electric, lithium-ion battery powertrain.

Built with a lightweight, modular chassis and carbon fibre body, the company claims the model will be one of the lightest LCVs in the marketplace.

Dr. Qu Li, CEO and founder of Morris Commercial, said, “As a business we are committed to environmental sustainability and we are trailblazing a new approach to the production of appealing, fully electric commercial vehicles. We are very excited to unveil the JE to the public this autumn.”
