Morgan confirms development of magnesium and aluminum chassis

Posted Dec 28th 2012 12:00PM


In a brief chat with The Telegraph, managing director of Morgan, Charles Morgan, talked about how the tiny UK automaker will navigate the future. Morgan believes that as long as the company can find a way to exploit niche products that the big automakers can't or won't do, and if his firm can be a test bed for new technologies, then there's a way to retain both the Morgan spirit and independence.

One of those upcoming technologies could be a new chassis material of magnesium and aluminum. The combination would allow Morgan to form its panels in the traditional way, but make them 20 per cent lighter. You can watch him lay out the company's present and future in the video below, and no matter the material we hope it includes the EvaGT.
