- The first ever, genuine, full-speed Electric MOKE vehicles rolled off the UK production line last week, ready to be delivered to customers in the UK for the Great British summer.
- Exclusive partnership announced with Beaverbrook, the celebrated English country house estate.
- The classic emotive MOKE driving experience, with the unmatched enjoyment, performance and environmental benefits of fully electric power
“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. 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.”
Robin Kennedy, Commercial Director, MOKE International
MOKE International is delighted to announce the first deliveries of the new all-electric MOKE, manufactured in the UK, ready for a glorious summer of open-air motoring pleasure.
Customers in the UK will receive their new cars from June through MOKE’s official UK distributor, Hendy Group, heralding a highly-anticipated return to the road for this much-loved British motoring icon. The first Electric MOKE vehicles will be officially handed over to customers in France around the same time.
This summer also sees the launch of major new partnerships bringing the MOKE experience to locations that perfectly reflect the car’s unique character. For guests at Beaverbrook, the quintessentially English country house estate, the MOKE Electric’s whisper-quiet, sustainable drivetrain makes it the ideal companion for savouring the peaceful countryside and secluded lanes of the Surrey Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the south of England.
And on the Côte d’Azur, with its local partners, MOKE is opening its first official experience centre, “Casa MOKE” in Saint-Tropez, building towards its vision to become the world’s most loved beach lifestyle brand. International clients of luxury real-estate company Bo-House and Tardieu Immobilier will have access to an exclusive monthly subscription package. This allows them to enjoy the freedom and joy of driving an Electric MOKE while in residence, without the administrative commitments of outright ownership. The battery has sufficient range (120km) for at least three round trips from Cap-Ferrat to Monaco, at a suitably leisurely 80km/h.
THE SPIRIT OF SUMMER
Summer is when the Electric MOKE truly comes into its own as the ultimate countryside and beach cruiser. The fully electric powertrain offers enhanced performance and effortless driveability, free of noise pollution. With a typical range of around 75 miles, the MOKE is eminently suitable for days at the beach, country picnics and other summer activities: a rapid charge time of just four hours (from a mains charger) ensures it’s always ready for the next adventure.
The Electric MOKE’s fun-loving, outdoor character is reflected in the colour palette – Wave Blue, Sunlight Yellow, Sunset Orange, Scuba Blue and Granite Grey – offered on the standard model; customers will also be able to personalise their car to their exact tastes and sensibilities later this year.
A BREATH OF FRESH AIR
At the end of the battery’s life in a MOKE, it’s collected by a dedicated partner and repurposed for use in other industries, such as energy storage and construction. On final disposal, it’s recycled responsibly by ethical, sustainable specialists.
Efficient supply chain
Over 60% of the MOKE parts come from Europe helping reduce the distances travelled by components, while also allowing tariff-free access to EU markets
Blue Marine Foundation
As part of its ‘Clean Beach’ ambitions, MOKE has become a Corporate Partner and Sponsor of the Blue Marine Foundation (“Blue”), which operates all over the world and in many of MOKE’s most important markets.
Blue is working to protect and restore life in the ocean, which is critical if the world is to ward off runaway climate change.
