There’s a new electric version of the reborn Mini Moke

There’s a new version of the reborn Moke that we first saw back in September 2020, and this time its all-electric. The purists will love this one…

Moke International – the company that acquired the rights back in 2015 – says that a 44bhp electric motor now powers the rear wheels. There’s no word on the size of the battery, but the Moke EV will manage 89 miles of range on a single charge. It’ll take four hours of plugging in to replenish said battery, and top speed is just 62mph.

There’s regenerative braking and power steering too, as well as aluminium body panels that help keep the weight down (although it still tips the scales at 800kg).

Here’s the kicker, though, because whilst the combustion-engined reborn Moke started at around £20,000, the EV will up the price of entry to £29,150 before taxes or any plug-in car grants. Yikes.

Oh, and this new electric Moke will be the only version you can buy after 1 January 2022. Yep, it’s going EV-only. Thoughts, Internet?
