Munro Vehicles (Munro), a manufacturer of all-electric 4x4s, has revealed the Mk_1 electric truck. The vehicle allows customers operating in challenging sectors such as mining, construction, utilities, agriculture and defense to meet decarbonization goals.
As with all models and variants of the Munro MK_1 range, the new pick-up combines the rugged reliability and repairability of a 4x4 mechanical drivetrain to provide support in rough weather and terrain, with an electric powertrain to ensure no tailpipe emissions.
The rear bed of the Munro MK_1 Pick-Up accommodates a 1,050-kg Euro Pallet payload, while the Performance model has a 3,500-kg maximum braked towing capacity for hauling cargo from farm implements and livestock to construction and disaster relief equipment.
Producing a peak power output of 375/280 kw combined with available 700 Mn/516 ft. lbs. of torque, the Munro MK_1 Pick-Up is capable of reaching 60 mph in 4.9 seconds. A 220 kW electric motor and a choice of Utility and Range variants are also offered.
Replenishing the 82.4 kWh battery from 15 to 80% can be undertaken using a 100 kW DC charger in just 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.
“We launched Munro to fill the significant gap in the market for an electric-powered, four-wheel-drive, utilitarian workhorse. Our vehicles are designed and engineered without compromise from clean sheet principles unimpeded by any existing architecture. The result is rugged construction created for decades of service delivering ultimate, go-anywhere, off-road ability,” said Munro CEO and co-founder Russell Peterson.
