Surf’s up: all new Electric Moke gets flagship store in Saint Tropez

The all-new Electric Moke parked up outside Casa Moke, a flagship store in St Tropez

A flagship store dedicated to the all new electric Moke has opened in Saint Tropez. For those that can’t make it to Casa Moke on the French Riviera, the latest take on the iconic beach buggy can also be configured and ordered online, via a new Moke website.

£990 will secure a pre-order for those that want to join the waiting list. 

Buyers have a choice of five iconic colours from launch: Granite Grey, Sunlight Yellow, Sunset Orange, Scuba Blue and Wave Blue.

They can also have their electric Moke delivered to an address of their choice, or they can collect it in person at Casa Moke.

The utility vehicle was regularly seen on cult TV series The Prisoner…

The original Mini Moke first appeared in 1964 and was quickly adopted by pop culture icons like Brigitte Bardot and The Beach Boys. The utility vehicle was regularly seen on cult TV series The Prisoner, ferrying Number Six (Patrick McGoohan) about Portmeirion, in Wales.

Production of the Electric Moke is now underway in England. Using a 44hp motor and weighing under 800kg, the rear-wheel-drive buggy covers 0-34mph (0-55kph) in 4.3 seconds and achieves a top speed of 50 mph (80 km/h). 

A full charge takes just four hours, via a Type 2 port, and the Electric Moke covers up to 80 miles of range on a single charge, which we’re told is enough for four round trips across the Côte d’Azur.  

Prices start at £34,980. For more visit Moke online here.
