ELSA -Electric Lightweight Skateboard Architecture
MORRIS COMMERCIAL LTD
Morris Commercial is set to revive the historic British iconic brand "Morris" with zero emission vehicles. The first vehicle under development is a 2.5ton GVW battery electric van, Morris JE, with a lightweight carbon fibre body and a lightweight chassis. ELSA will explore a unique, modular and ultra-lightweight EV skateboard chassis platform architecture using multi-materials to achieve an optimised weight, cost, and durability with a manufacturing approach that will be suitable for both low and high volume production. The project will be focused on design for manufacturing and utilisation of advanced materials developed in the UK and UK supply chain.
