“Long referred to as the ultimate, classic and iconic van from the 1950s, the Morris J-type is making a triumphant comeback as the Morris JE. The new fully-electric Morris JE will utilise advanced battery technology with a lightweight platform. Combining classically-inspired design with the heritage of the original J-type, the new JE will be built using beautiful British craftsmanship.”

No Hipster Micro Brewery is complete without one.

The originals were bloody terrible, that's why the Transit blew all small commercials away when it appeared in the late 60's.

AROnline:-
What’s under the skin of the JE?

"It’s a pure EV that Morris Commercial says will travel upto 200 miles on a full charge – although it hasn’t yet to be tested officially, as it’s still a running prototype. It uses a bespoke modular platform, with a ‘state-of-the-art’ lithium ion battery powertrain, all sourced from the UK, according to CEO and founder, Dr Qu Li."

Here is the news in December 2029.

The government is under pressure as to what to do with all the first generation electric vehicle batteries. They can not be easily recycled and can not be put in land fill and the new political party Extinction Rebellion is putting the coalition government under pressure by blockading the capitol and other major cities as the lithium battery crisis deepens.

Mean while the mass earthquakes, caused by the over mining of lithium, in Chile are getting worse.

It's already starting to happen. A breakers yard near us has a large pile of old batteries from scrapped (high mileage old taxi) Toyota Prius. He can't get rid of them. Toyota don't want them and have no facility to take/recycle them it seems.
I'm certainly not sure that the battery electric car is the way forward. Happy to stick with my diesel for now ;)
