Munro Vehicles (Munro), a manufacturer of all-electric 4x4s, revealed its second model, the Mk_1 Pick-Up, at Fully Charged Live North. The ultra-utilitarian pick-up tuck, as described by the company, is built for customers operating in sectors such as mining, construction, utilities, agriculture, and defense and to meet imminent decarbonization targets, the company says.

The rear bed of the Munro MK_1 Pick-Up accommodates a 1050kg payload (approx. 2314.854 lbs.), while the Performance model has a 3,500kg (approx. 7,716.179 lbs.) maximum braked towing capacity.

Producing a peak power output of 375/280kw, combined with instantly available 700Mn/516ft.-lb. of torque, the Munro MK_1 Pick-Up can achieve 60 mph in 4.9 seconds, the company says. A 220KW electric motor and a choice of Utility and Range variants are also offered. Replenishing the 82.4kWh battery from 15 to 80% can be done using a 100kW DC charger in 36 minutes. With a fully charged battery, the MK_1 has a range of more than 190 miles, enabling it to operate off-road for up to 16 hours on a single battery charge.

Designed, engineered, and built in Britain, the vehicle is priced at £49,995 (approx. $6,2228.48).
