Boxy Or Edgy? You Decide

It may not be to everyone’s taste, but the British tradition for producing iconic 4x4s has continued with the launch of a multi-purpose pick-up from Scotland’s Munro.

The Munro MK_1 pickup was shown off at the Fully Charged Live North event last week. It is the company's follow-up to the MK_1 truck, which came out late last year. Munro says it was made for a number of "challenging" industries like mining, building, utilities, and agriculture.

The practical model can take a payload of 1,050 kg of Euro pallets, while the performance models can tow 3,500kg when the brakes are on. Performance versions can go from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.9 seconds. This is because they have 375 bhp and 700 nm of power. There are also utility and range types with less power.

Munro says that the MK-1's 82.4 kWh battery can give it a range of "more than 190 miles." When linked to a 100 kW rapid charger, the battery can be charged from 15% to 80% in 36 minutes.

“We launched Munro to fill the significant gap in the market for an electric-powered, four-wheel-drive, utilitarian workhorse,” said Munro CEO Russell Peterson.

“Our vehicles are designed and engineered without compromise from clean sheet principles unimpeded by any existing architecture. The result is a rugged construction created for decades of service delivering ultimate, go-anywhere, off-road ability.”
