An odd little electric car is making its way to the US this month called the e-Moke. It looks like something you would see in reruns of The Monkees. The original Moke was based on the Mini and while there are gas version abroad, the e-Moke coming to the US is an electric car.
The vehicle boasts power steering and such niceties as seatbelts, 14-inch alloy wheels, power steering, mirrors, and a front bumper. It will be offered in eight colors ranging from basic red, blue, black, and white to brighter colors like pink and orange as well as a camo pattern.
The EV has a driving range of either 40 or 90 miles depending on the battery you buy and a top speed of 25mph. That top speed means you will raise the ire of anyone who ends up behind you on the streets. Charge time is 6-8 hours and you can opt for gel or lithium batteries. The e-Moke sells for $15,975 plus shipping and you have to plunk down a 50% deposit to start the build with delivery estimated for the first cars in May or June 2017. The car does qualify for the federal tax credit in the US for EVs.Filed Under: Auto News
