Munro unveils all-electric MK_1 Pick-Up; zero-emission off-road mobility

Munro Vehicles, a manufacturer of all-electric 4x4s, and Scotland’s only volume production car company, has revealed its second model, the Mk_1 Pick-Up. The pick-up follows swiftly in the wheel tracks of the Munro MK_1 Truck launched last December. Like the Munro MK­_1 Truck, the MK_1 Pick-Up’s abilities enable customers operating in challenging sectors such as mining, construction, utilities, agriculture, and defense to meet imminent decarbonization targets without compromising on performance.


Priced from £49,995 Ex VAT with deliveries commencing later this year, we have already secured more than 200 orders for the MK_1 Pick-Up, three of which have come from FTSE 100 companies and ten from FTSE 250 companies. With a full two-year order book for both the MK_1 Pick-Up and the MK_1 Truck, Munro is having to expedite its search for larger premises to meet customer demand.

The spacious, easy-to-load 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 effortless haulage of any cargo from farm implements and livestock to construction and disaster relief equipment.

Producing a peak power output of 375hp / 280kW combined with instantly available 700N·m / 516ft-lb of torque, the Munro MK_1 Pick-Up accelerates from 0 to 60mph in 4.9 seconds. A 220kW electric motor and a choice of Utility and Range variants are also offered.

Replenishing the 82.4kWh battery from 15 to 80% using a 100kW DC charger takes 36 minutes. With a fully charged battery, the MK_1 has a range of more than 190 miles.

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



Paint it khaki and put a heavy machine gun on the back.
For eco terrorists.


OK, it is a serious off-road vehicle, not available till 2024.
The website does not mention the 82.4 kWh battery, but I'm sure it is real and will be popular.
As long as people use it off road, it will be fine, however, you can be sure people will want to use it like a Range Rover, and it may not have the range for that.
I hope they can build enough of them and I wish them well.
