Utilising a unique curved design and body over powertrain configuration, the Morris JE retains the reputation of being a “big” little van from the original J-type.With instantaneous torque providing a quick take-off and smooth drive – the efficient JE is perfect for all day driving. Fully automatic driving and regenerative braking help to conserve driver energy and extend vehicle range.
The Morris J-E has been developed with three battery packs to choose from, offering between 150 and 250 miles of range on one charge.The JE is an LCV that sits within the 2.5 tonne segment, the lightest sector in the commercial vehicle market. However, it boasts a 1 tonne (1000 kg) payload and 5.5 m³ carrying capacity, which is more typical of vehicles in the larger 3.5 tonne sector.
It will accommodate two standard Euro pallets on the rear loading space. Access is provided via full width rear doors and a sliding side door on the nearside of the vehicle. The lightweight construction means that its range is optimised to around 200 miles, making the van an exceptionally practical proposition as an urban commercial vehicle.
