Munro unveils all-electric off-roader

25 May 2023 #Truck

Zero emission 4×4 manufacturer Munro Vehicles has revealed its all-electric Mk_1 Pick-Up for operations ranging from mining, construction and utilities to agriculture and defence.

With a 220kW motor in Utility and Range variants, the pick-up provides a range of more than 190 miles, with capability to operate off-road for up to 16 hours on a single battery charge.

Replenishing the 82.4kWh battery from 15 to 80% can be undertaken using a 100kW DC charger in just 36 minutes – all that is needed to deliver the truck’s peak power output of 375/280kW and a 700Mn/516ft-lb of torque.

The rear bed of the MK_1, meanwhile, accommodates a 1,050kg 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 manufacturer has already taken more than 200 pre-orders for both the pick-up model and MK_1, launched last December.

Russell Peterson, Munro CEO and Co-Founder said: “The levels of positive feedback we have experienced from media and customers who have test driven the MK_1 Truck has been unprecedented and the response to the new MK_1 Pick-Up has been equally positive.

“This represents a significant global market opportunity and one which, with our financial partners, we are poised to fully exploit as we take the next strategic step and move towards the pre-production prototype stage.”
