Scotland-based EV manufacturer Munro said earlier this month that it plans to start deliveries of its Mark I EV next year, with orders in from Switzerland, the UK, and the Middle East. The EV will retail for 49,995 pounds sterling, which seems remarkably reasonable for a low-volume, hand-built full electric 4x4. We first picked up the Munro Mark I story back in September, with a close look at the rudimentary, work-focused off-roader.

The new release says the rig will have battery pack options of either 61 kWh or 82 kWh, the bigger of which should be good for 16 hours of continuous use. The Mark I will also be available with either a 220kW motor or a 280kW unit, the latter good for a claimed 4.9-second 0–60 sprint, though acceleration is not the focus here. Munro claims a payload capacity of 2,200 pounds, and a 7,700-pound towing capacity.

After the first deliveries next year, Munro is planning a 2024 move to a purpose-built factory in central Scotland where it will scale up from 250 units a year to a goal of 2,500 or so machines a year.

We’re happy to see a cool, rugged, dependability-minded utility rig starting to take off, and hope to see Munros hit these shores for fleet use. With any luck, scaling up will make that possible.
