MOKE International has confirmed the first deliveries of the new all-electric MOKE which rolled off its UK production line last week.
Customers in the UK will receive their new cars from June through MOKE’s official UK distributor, Hendy Group, with the first Electric MOKE vehicles to be officially handed over to customers in France around the same time.
This summer also sees the launch of major new partnerships for MOKE, with the new electric car being on display at Beaverbrook, the quintessentially English country house estate.
The car will also travel to the Côte d’Azur, where, along 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.
Robin Kennedy, Commercial Director, MOKE International, said: “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.”
