Early look: Morgan LifeCar concept

Morgan has released images of its LifeCar concept ahead of the car's Geneva Motor Show debut next month. The LifeCar is based on the company's Aero 8 but is powered by a hydrogen fuel-cell drivetrain with a range of about 200 miles.

The LifeCar concept was developed by a number of organizations — including the Department for Trade and Industry, BOC, OSCar, Oxford University and Cranfield University — and cost £1.9 million to design and create.

Though Morgan vehicles aren't normally associated with cutting edge, the British automaker wanted to prove "that a zero emission vehicle can also be fun to drive."

“The real challenge is to design and build a car that is fun to drive – a proper sports car,” Charles Morgan, the strategy director for the Morgan Motor Company, told Car Body Design.
