Classic Mercedes are being converted

Moment Motor Company, based in Austin, Texas, carefully selects electric conversion projects, focusing on the Mercedes 280SL roadster as the ideal antique car for conversion.

Since electromods are so prevalent in today's automobile world, tuning firms need to be creative in their approach. The Austin, Texas-based Moment Motor Company has a distinctive strategy for picking its electric conversion projects carefully. The tuner meticulously chooses vintage cars that can easily handle an EV powertrain rather than converting any automobile to electric power.

According to the business, the Mercedes 280SL roadster is the ideal antique car for conversion. Its size permits a respectable battery capacity, and it is regarded as one of the best designs of that age. More significantly, the drivetrain's seamless operation flawlessly embodies the essence of the car because it is a premium car.

The company claims that a thorough analysis of a vehicle is the first step in the design process. Using cutting-edge computer-aided design (CAD) technology, a 3D model of every project automobile is produced. Based on this model, an EV conversion strategy is developed that preserves the vehicle's weight distribution and handling characteristics.

This translates to a 62-kWh battery pack, giving drivers 175 miles of range in the case of the 280SL. It is coupled to a permanent magnet motor operating in three phases, producing 300 horsepower and 370 lb-ft of torque.
