News released that Charles has been made a N.E.D. at the new British Battery Factory business Britishvolt.

https://www.prnewswire.co.uk/news-r...es-morgan-as-board-member-868422366.html

That is a project worthy of his thoughts and would be good for the industry.


Just time to burn a little more petrol before dinner.

Interesting I don't recall the Lifecar or EV3 making it into production though so not too sure why they included that, the Aero was a big enough achievement I would have thought.

I can understand why giving Charles a "green rinse" would help sell him to the board however grin2

No. And they weren't the first to market with an adhesive bonded chassis, either...

Having watched Morgan 100 avidly each week, I now have some understanding as to why he was removed from the board of MMC smile

Very complicated and extremely political.
The “official” reason is on record, however?

I’m unaware of the reason unofficial or otherwise. I always thought it was strange when Morgan was owned by the family but he was removed from chairman role.
