The Electric Mini Moke Rolls Off The Assembly Line
The first models of the resurrected Mini Moke have rolled off the assembly line, and will be delivered to customers later this summer.
The new Moke starts at £29,150 before taxes and incentives are taken into account. The car’s manufacturer, Moke International, claims it is the first legacy brand to go totally electric.
At launch, there are five exterior paint colours to choose from: Granite Grey, Sunlight Yellow, Sunset Orange, Scuba Blue, and Wave Blue, with more options coming later this year.
“Moke is all about country roads, beach excursions, the summer breeze in your hair and enjoying the journey, rather than hurrying from A to B,” said commercial director Robin Kennedy.
“We’ve taken the original Mini Moke, created by Sir Alec Issigonis, and reimagined it for today’s world – and tomorrow’s – as a fully electric vehicle.
“In recent times, petrol-powered Mokes have been championed by everyone from Kate Moss to George Russell. Our team has been working relentlessly for three years to engineer and manufacture a worthy, sustainable successor with the latest technologies.
“Made in Britain, the electric Moke is now ready to inspire and delight a new generation.”
A 44bhp motor drives the rear wheels, allowing the vehicle to accelerate from 0 to 34mph (0-55kph) in 4.5 seconds and reach a top speed of 62mph.
The battery size hasn’t been revealed, but the Moke has an 89-mile range, which is adequate for five trips between Cap-Ferrat and Monaco, according to its creator.
Charging takes four hours through a Type 2 port.
