Iconic Morris J-Type Van Reimagined as an EV

Morris, the classic British motoring brand, is set to make a comeback with a new electrified J-Type van.

The name will be familiar to British motoring enthusiasts, with Morris last being used on a vehicle in 1984. The brand is now operated by state-owned Chinese automaker SAIC. The J-Type, meanwhile, was introduced in 1948 and ceased production in 1961.

The new van, named the JE, will be a full electric vehicle, with Morris calling it a ‘modern interpretation of a quintessentially timeless British design’. No technical details regarding battery size or power from the electric motors have been released yet, but the UK-based company hopes to have a prototype on the roads alongside a full unveiling later in the autumn.
