Vehicle electrification innovator Fellten has shared details of its collaboration with Morgan Motor Company. In a ground-breaking move blending tradition with innovation, Fellten has supported Morgan in developing the electric XP-1 prototype, showcasing the seamless integration of Fellten’s cutting-edge battery technology.

The Morgan XP-1, a prototype electric three-wheeler, embodies a perfect blend of Morgan’s unique sports car ethos and Fellten’s advanced electric technology. The XP-1, based on the platform of the Super 3, operates on a sophisticated 33kWh battery system provided by Fellten, ensuring a lightweight build and dynamic performance.

Fellten’s contribution to the XP-1 includes a state-of-the-art battery pack and battery management system, playing a pivotal role in maintaining the vehicle’s lightweight architecture. The integration of these systems testifies to Fellten’s capability in adapting to the specific needs of unique vehicle designs for concepts and as a Tier One supplier to the automotive industry.

Further cementing its status as a leader in electric re-powering technology, Fellten’s UBP55E Universal Battery Pack, a 55kWh high-density battery system, was honoured with the Global Media Award at the 2023 SEMA Show (USA) – showcasing Fellten’s excellence in engineering, offering versatility for a range of classic vehicles, from muscle cars to 4x4s.

Both the XP-1 battery system and the UBP55E are designed for efficiency and ease of integration, featuring an in-built CCS rapid charging, advanced thermal management, and robust power delivery – and manufactured in Bristol, UK.

MORGAN’S COMMITMENT TO ELECTRIFICATION
XP-1 is a statement of intent to Morgan’s electric future. The company is embarking on an electrification journey, with XP-1 playing a fundamental role in the development process of future electric Morgan sports cars. The firm is committed to producing electric sports cars that are lightweight, fun to drive, coachbuilt, and bespoke. Characteristics that have become synonymous with its models since 1909.
