All-electric 4x4 manufacturer Munro Vehicles has revealed its second model, the Mk_1 Pick-Up truck.
The Scottish built Munro pick-up is an ultra-utilitarian off-roader that follows in the wake of the Munro MK_1 Truck that was first unveiled in December.
Powered by an electric motor producing a peak power output of 280kW and 700Nm of torque, the Munro MK_1 Pick-Up is said to have a 0 to 60mph time of just 4.9 seconds. If top speed isn’t your main criteria, however, a lesser 220kW motor option will also be provided.
Power to the motor comes from an 82.4kWh battery capable of taking a 100kW DC charge. That should be enough to take the battery from 15% to 80% in just 36 minutes. When fully charged the MK_1 has a range of more than 190 miles. Munro says that that is enough for the truck to “operate off-road for up to 16 hours on a single battery charge”.
The Munro MK_1 Pick-Up can carry up to 1050kg, and has space for a Euro Pallet payload in its load area. Shown in Performance trim with yellow paintwork and , the Performance model also has a 3,500kg maximum braked towing capacity.
Designed, engineered, and built in Britain, the Munro is the first light vehicle to enter production in Scotland in more than four decades.
Prices will start from £49,995 excluding VAT. Deliveries are expected to start later in the year. More than 200 pre-orders for the MK_1 Pick-Up have already been made. Munro says that three of these have come from FTSE 100 companies and ten from FTSE 250 companies.
As a result of the orders, Munro says that it now has a full two-year order book for its current models, the MK_1 Pick-Up and the MK_1 Truck. Munro is therefore stepping up its search for larger premises.
