Morris Garages Says New Electric Sports Car Will Get a 300-Mile Range
General Motors and Ford Motor Co. are not the only auto manufacturers who have big plans for going electric.
Morris Garages (MG) plans to hit the road with a new electric sports car that it says can get 300 miles per charge. The British roadster company is also rolling out the new wheels with a price tag under $40k.
MG is planning to unveil the new E-Motion next year, Autocar reports. The two-door, four-seat coupe originally unveiled at the Shanghai Motor Show in 2017 promises to pack enough punch to go from 0 to 62 miles per hour in about four seconds.
The E-Motion is a key part of MG’s ambitious growth strategy, in which the Chinese-owned company aims to increase new car sales to 1 million per year by 2024. That year is the century mark from the company’s founding by London car designer Cecil Kimber.
Meanwhile, many of the world’s largest car manufacturers are increasingly turning their attention to plugging in. In late January, General Motors announced that it would only sell zero-emissions vehicles by 2035, while Ford has moved to offer more electric versions of vehicles like the popular F150 truck, and Volkswagen says it will offer an electric version of each of its models by 2030.
Car Defects, Safety Risks, and Your Legal Rights
As carmakers continue to shift their attention to electric vehicles, they also continue to struggle to make cars that are safe for the road.
Unfortunately, millions of vehicles are recalled each year for a wide range of defects that put drivers, passengers, and everyone else at risk. These defects commonly go unnoticed until long after cars have left the factory and sales lots.
For example, GM recently recalled more than 200,000 cars because of a suspension component problem that the company said increased the risk of a crash. The move came shortly after GM called back more than 600,000 trucks and sport utility vehicles because of the company's defective seatbelts that could cause people to be injured.
The good news for car owners and lessors in California is that the state’s lemon law offers some important rights and protections. The law requires car manufacturers to perform various repairs on vehicles while they are under warranty. It also obligates the company to buy back - or, in some cases, replace - vehicles that the manufacturer is unwilling or unable to fix.
