Electric Mini Moke rolls off the production line ahead of summer deliveries

The Moke is 3225mm long, 1660mm wide and 1546mm high, with 18cm of ground clearance.

Customers can customize their cars “to their exact tastes and sensibilities”, with power steering, regenerative braking and heated windshields all included as standard. It is available in both right-hand and left-hand drive.

“Moke is going electric ensures the appeal of one of Britain’s best-loved brands for many generations to come,” said Moke International CEO Isobel Dando, former product manager at Rolls-Rolls. Royce.

“Moke’s marriage of fun, personality and outdoor thrills will only be enhanced by the performance and quiet operation of an electric powertrain.

“We are proud to write a new chapter in one of the best love stories in British motoring folklore.”

The Moke is built “in a state-of-the-art facility” in the UK operated by Northamptonshire-based Fablink Group.

Moke International says it has 500,000 square feet of production space, employing around 700 people at six sites in the UK.

The brand was relaunched in 2017, with the success of various special editions leading to investments that the firm says secured its long-term future.

It also says it was able to commit to the UK as a manufacturing base thanks to a government grant from the Niche Vehicle Network, as well as the post-Brexit trade deal which “allows UK car companies to ‘duty-free access to EU markets, based on defined rules of origin’.

So all of the car’s battery cells, motors and inverters will be sourced from “European tier one suppliers”.
