Last Updated On: 08/02/2022
Production of that iconic swinging sixties utilitarian fun vehicle, the Mini Moke, has recently resumed after manufacturing of the original Mini-based model finally ceased in 1993. Now simply called MOKE, the first versions were powered by a 1.1 litre petrol engine. However, from the beginning of 2022 it will only be available as a full BEV (Battery Electric Vehicle).
The new electric MOKE has been designed from the ground-up with a view to significantly enhancing the driving experience. The use of aluminium panels has significantly reduced the weight of the vehicle for a more agile ride, while the instant torque from the electric motor dramatically enhances acceleration and driveability. The electric MOKE benefits from a number of other updates across the vehicle, from improved braking systems to increased occupant and pedestrian safety features. Finally, power-steering, regenerative braking and heated windscreen delivers ease-of-use.
The instant and silent power delivery derived from an EV powertrain allows the new MOKE to sprint to 55km/h (34mph) in just 4.5 seconds. Maximum power of 33Kw proves plenty for a vehicle that weighs just 800 Kg. Range is fit for 5 round trips between Cap-Ferrat to Monaco (89 miles/144km). Charging takes 4 hours on the Type 2 EU Standard and top speed is 100km/h (62mph). The powertrain is rear wheel direct-drive (LHD and RHD).
Initial customer deliveries are expected to begin in time for the European summer season.
