Electrogenic has finalised two ‘World First’ conversions of classic vehicles to electric power.
The classic car electrification company has announced that a 1976 Triumph Stag and a 1957 Morgan 4/4 both now run on silent, zero-emission electric power.
The Oxford-based company has converted the first Stag ever to electric power. Electrogenic has integrated a ‘Hyper9’ high-voltage brushless electric motor, which delivers 80kW of power and 235Nm of torque to the rear wheels through the original four-speed manual gearbox. The conversion uses a Type 2 charger and offers an approximate range of 150 miles.
Meanwhile, the Morgan 4/4 conversion is the first professionally converted four-wheeled Morgan to be transformed to electric propulsion. This car will be also powered by the ‘Hyper9’ high-voltage brushless electric motor used on the Stag and will offer the same performance and range.
The goal of the company is to connect the charm of a classic car with the latest technology without any compromises, according to Steve Drummond, Director and Co-Founder of Electrogenic.
“Our systems also allow us to maintain the originality of the rest of the car, which is a really important factor for us. For example, it means that we can repurpose the original instruments to keep the interior as untouched as possible,” he said. “Ultimately, what we’re always trying to do with our conversions is to make the cars we’ve been entrusted with into ‘better versions’.”
Electrogenic’s Triumph Stag and Morgan 4/4 conversions are customer vehicles, and as such have been prepared to the customer’s specifications. The company offers a full suite of classic car electrification options for customers, and every car that is converted is unique, maintaining the beauty and engineering of the original but making the car as practical as possible.
