Following the overwhelming popularity of the all-new, all-electric Morris JE’s first public appearance at the Fully Charged Live show in early September, the Morris JE will be competing in the first ever London to Brighton EV Rally on Saturday the 18th September with Harry Potter and Dr Who star Mark Williams co-driving.
With a range in excess of 200 miles, the 60-mile journey from the capital to the seaside resort will be a piece of cake for the all-electric Morris JE. Upon arrival in the coastal town, the Morris JE will displayed in the ‘EV Village’ on Madeira Drive where members of the public will be able to marvel at the van’s classic and iconic design.
This will be the second public display of the Morris JE after the Fully Charged Live event in Farnborough at the beginning of September. Combining state of the art EV technology with beautiful British craftmanship, the Morris JE captured the public’s imagination and received overwhelming interest and admiration from visitors.
