Reborn Mini Moke Arrives in America

New Mini Moke Goes On Sale In The USA As Upmarket Electric Car

If you’re looking for a quiet, environmentally conscious way to cruise your favorite beach town, the new Moke Californian might be it!

Named the Californian as a tribute to the classic, Mini-built ICE version sold here in the US in the late ’70s, this baby will be the only highway-legal Moke vehicle that’s available here in the States. It’s hand-built to the same standards as the version the ultra-rich in Europe are able to get their hands on.

According to the car’s makers, this American version will have a top speed of 50 mph and a range of 80 miles, making it really more of a neighborhood EV than something we’d actually want to take out on a highway. It’ll take about four hours to fully charge back up on a Level 1 charger. The Californian comes with a 43 hp motor, puts out 96 lb-ft of torque, and weighs just 1,764 pounds. 

“This is a momentous time for Moke International. It’s great to be able to offer the US market a genuine Moke car for the first time in 40 years. The original Moke Californian represented an incredibly important chapter in the company’s rich history; we are proud that the Moke lives on and can be enjoyed in the electric era,” said Isobel Dando, the company’s CEO.

The Californian is priced at a somewhat surprising $41,900, with reservations open for a $990 refundable deposit. Take a look at the pictures, below, and let us know what you think of this latest entry into the EV market in the comments.
