Munro Vehicles set to debut new electric 4×4

Scottish electric 4×4 manufacturer Munro Vehicles is set to unveil its first vehicle, the Munro MK_1 at a global launch event in Edinburgh.

The company, which claims to be Scotland’s only volume production car company, will reveal the vehicle to a global audience on 5th December. Munro says the MK_1 will be the “world’s most capable all-electric 4×4, born off-road to navigate the most challenging terrain and operating for up to 16 hours on a single battery charge.”

The vehicle is designed to carry a 1000kg payload and 3500kg towing capacity, and the brand aims to build 50 vehicles in 2023 before transitioning to a new purpose-built site near Glasgow in 2024. With the creation of 300 new jobs, production will be ramped up to 250 vehicles per year with a strategic roadmap in place to deliver 2,500 units annually by 2027.

Munro CEO, Russell Peterson, said: “This early sketch of the Munro MK_1 by our award-winning in-house designer Ross Compton, underlines our design commitment to build an all-terrain electric 4X4 engineered from the wheels up to provide unparalleled workhorse capability for commercial customers looking to decarbonise their fleets.

“The Munro MK_1 will effortlessly go to places others can’t reach, with bulletproof durability and ultra-low running costs. The Munro team and I can’t wait to show the world the fully finished vehicle on December fifth.”
