Munro unveils all-electric MK_1 Pick-Up


Munro Vehicles, a manufacturer of all-electric 4x4s, and Scotland’s only volume production car company, has revealed its second model, the all-electric Mk_1 Pick-Up.

Like the company’s Munro MK_1 Truck, launched last December, the MK_1 Pick-Up is designed for customers operating in sectors such as mining, construction, utilities, agriculture, and defence.

Producing a peak power output of 375/280kw combined with 700Mn/516ft-lb of torque, the Munro MK_1 Pick-Up features a 220KW electric motor and there are a choice of Utility and Range variants.

Replenishing the 82.4kWh battery from 15 to 80% can be undertaken using a 100kW DC charger in 36 minutes. With a fully charged battery, the MK_1 has a range of more than 190 miles, enabling it to operate off-road for up to 16 hours on a single battery charge.

The rear bed of the Munro MK_1 Pick-Up accommodates a 1050kg Euro Pallet payload, while the Performance model has a 3,500kg maximum braked towing capacity for haulage of any cargo from farm implements and livestock to construction and disaster relief equipment.

Designed, engineered, and built in Britain, the Munro is the first light vehicle to enter production in Scotland in more than four decades.

The manufacturer has already taken more than 200 pre-orders for both the truck and Pick-Up models.

Russell Peterson, Munro CEO and Co-Founder said, “We launched Munro to fill the significant gap in the market for an electric-powered, four-wheel-drive, utilitarian workhorse.

“Our vehicles are designed and engineered without compromise from clean sheet principles unimpeded by any existing architecture.

“The result is a rugged construction created for decades of service delivering ultimate, go-anywhere, off-road ability.”
