The Electric MOKE is a modern, emissions-free successor to the iconic Mini MOKE which first graced the US’s most beautiful beach destinations in the 1960s. In 1966, the Beach Boys were reputedly each gifted one by Capitol Records to celebrate the success of the iconic Pet Sounds album. The latest version still employs British craftsmanship and design to breathe new life into a beloved classic. With highway-legal certification and top speeds of up to 50mph, this electric marvel distinguishes itself by marrying modern innovation with nostalgic allure. It relaunched in the US in November of 2023.

To celebrate the arrival of the first MOKEs in the USA, MOKE International hosted an exclusive picnic for VIPs at The Surf Club, where attendees were able to snack, sip and zip around Surfside in the bespoke “Surf Club Green” MOKEs during the week of Art Basel. Then taking centre stage in the realm of VIP transportation for The Art of Wellness festival, an official Art Basel affiliated event created by nrvld.co. This collaboration ensured that guests experienced the epitome of luxury and eco-friendliness as they were shuttled seamlessly between locations.
MOKE returns to the United States after a 40 year absence and the only hotel in Florida to house the MOKEs will be the Four Seasons in an exclusive launch partnership. The custom MOKEs will only be available to guests staying at The Surf Club and other South Florida Four Seasons properties, either to be chauffeured around or taken for themselves to enjoy local adventures. The Surf Club is on a 9-acre stretch of beachfront in the district of Surfside, just blocks away from the luxury shopping district of Bal Harbour, minutes from South Beach and a half hour drive from downtown Miami. The Electric MOKE is the perfect emissions-free vehicle for exploring local neighbourhoods, dining at Miami’s iconic restaurants or for popping into Bal Harbour Shops.

From January 2024, locals and visitors alike will be able to buy and rent Electric MOKE for their properties or vacations in South Florida, or make a purchase from this approved retailer.
MOKE International became the first heritage automotive company to go fully electric in 2021, and the first low volume vehicle manufacturer to get EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) approval following the implementation of the US Low Volume Motor Vehicle Manufacturers Act in 2022. MOKE is now the first in its class to offer an end-to-end online purchase experience for electric vehicles in the US.
