Munro Vehicles completes first pre-production model
The all-electric 4×4 is offered with two different powertrains: the M170 provides 170 kW and M280 280 kW. The maximum range is said to be about 200 miles or 322 kilometres.
The carmaker unveiled the prototype, the Munro Mk_1, back in December 2022. At the time, it mentioned a version with 220kW and one with 280kW. Moreover, the EV was to come with a choice of battery with a capacity of either 61kWh or 82kW.
Munro does not mention the battery capacity for the pre-production model. It only says that it is a “more durable, longer-lasting LFP (Lithium Iron Phosphate),” allowing the EV to charge with up to 130 kW.
The Scotts say they have made “numerous improvements” based on customer feedback. “These included an adjustable steering column with steering wheel controls, plus a raft of ergonomic enhancements. A full suite of safety equipment, including airbags, ABS brakes, stability, and traction control, is also now offered,” explains Munro CEO and co-founder Russell Peterson.
“Witnessing the first pre-production Munro Series-M Utility roll off the line is a momentous moment. Both for Munro and Scotland, as the Series-M Utility is the first light vehicle to enter mass production since the Linwood car factory closed in 1981,” commented Marcus Mackle, Munro Head of Vehicle Sales.
Munro Vehicles plans to scale production “from 50 vehicles over the next twelve months, to 200 units per annum” and even intends to build as many as 2,500 units by 2027. According to the carmaker, it has already received “more than 250 pre-orders for both the Utility and Truck models.”
