Is there an official statement that there will be a new Plus4 launched this year or is it just the fantasy of many of us here on TM?

There should be “new models” this year. Maybe a Plus 4, maybe an EV, or something completely different?

“In addition to new models planned for 2020, the year will also bring about an opportunity for us to mark the significance of the outgoing traditional steel chassis and its contribution to the marque. Used in Morgan’s core models since 1936, the traditional steel chassis has been an integral part of the Morgan story and we look forward to giving it a fitting send off.” – Steve Morris, CEO, Morgan Motor Company.

Well the rumours about a BMW IL6T model was snuffled out by the bloodhounds on TM quite well. Common sense tells me that the lego parts would click together quite well. But there was no real sneak news before the Plus Six actually got displayed.


Just time to burn a little more petrol before dinner.

Mmm, it does seem remarkably quiet?

With the PlusSix in production, I cannot imagine that a BMW engined four cylinder could be too difficult - to bring into "being?"


Honesty means doing it right, even when no one is looking!

Anyone who blabs will never get to know anything else. But the expected Geneva release isn't really such a big surprise?

I can tell you quite confidentially that the new model will be a total surprise.

In absolute confidence, mind you, and not to be discussed outside the inner circle, the new engine will be the BMW N74B68, V12 6,749 cc (411.8 cu in) which developes 420 kW (563 hp) at 5,250 rpm and 900 N⋅m (664 lb⋅ft) at 1,500 rpm. The engine will be the core of the new Sports SUV and is intended to cater for those who find the PlusSix too tame and firmly believe that too much power is never enough. The new AWD SSUV will carry special lead ballast to keep it on the ground. The lead ballast is specially designed to fill the battery compartment which has been cleverly included in the the design to simplify the switch to an AWD SSUV BEV. The new vehicle simply knew as the Morgan XS.

Remember you heard it first on Talk Morgan.

PS. Don't tell a soul: sssssh!

I already knew it and that's why I have already gained 25 kg of weight to keep the car on the ground.

Well it is a Plus Four but not as we know it the Italian's have insisted it's a car for the future and has good environmental credentials and I've seen it already..
