Curious - final assembly in Cerizay, France which is the same place as the electric nosmoke is built.

Moke International web site here https://mokeinternational.com/

You can spec your Moke in a variety of colours.

And in case you are wondering the engine is supplied by Chery Engines of China.

These are the (Chinese) Moke International Mokes, it appears that along with their Florida Based assembly plant, they have also set one up in France.

I know they are different compared to the Classic Mokes, these are a little longer and wider, but I just see them in a similar light to the MINI as the next evolution in the Moke.

Good luck to them, but not nearly as nice as an original, presumably classed as a new vehicle?
If so, how would you get it through the crash test regs, we constantly hear about affecting car design, making cars all look similar ....

I don't think it is too bad, considering - at least - it could be a hell of a lot worse!

Just another iteration of the Choke.

Why is it that anyone who builds a vaguely Moke shaped vehicle feel they can call it a Moke?

A Mini Moke is a Moke!

I'm glad you said it Mark. I was threatened with legal action afetr expressing similar opinions on the Moke Club forum several years back.

My work commute was by proper actual Moke this morning.

Hi Tim,

Crikey! That seems a bit extreme, doesn't it.

Glad to hear that you are Moking about down under. Sadly, the Moking season is drawing to a close here for another year.
