Originally concepted in Europe, the classic cruiser from the ‘60s—and adored among such stars and socialites as Brigitte Bardot, Cher, the Beach Boys, Princess Margaret, and Jacqueline Onassis—is now electric and street legal. When Moke America founder Todd Rome recently re-imagined the new NEV (neighborhood electric vehicle) version of the doorless buggy-on-steroids, little did he know customers would be clamoring to customize his design—and almost immediately. Whether in bright pink for SLS South Beach in Miami or a Louis Vuitton-wrapped version, the “bespoke Moke” has become the must-have accessory at country clubs, U.S. resorts, and along the streets of small towns such as Aspen. Plug it in for eight hours and you’re ready to roll for 40 miles. Intrigued? Read on—though you might be tempted to buy and customize your own.

The Back Story

Initially created by the British Motor Company and Alec Issigonis (father of the Austin Mini), the Moke was originally designed as a combat car (to be parachuted from the skies) for the British Army. Though its military use was short lived, the Moke debuted for civilian use in 1964—even appearing in four James Bond flicks, the TV show The Prisoner, and Jimmy Buffet’s song, “Autour Du Roucher”—and was in production until 1993.  

In 2017, the aforementioned Moke America Founder Todd Rome brought the Moke back to the U.S. and launched an electric version. Today, Moke America produces its cars in Sarasota, Florida. Each one weighs 2,300 pounds, has 14-inch tires, and is outfitted with seatbelts and a Bluetooth radio.
