Exercise your flower power with this electric Mini Moke

Do you need a safe, stylish and efficient means of transporting your nearest and dearest from the beach or the harbourside hot spot to your hilltop retreat? We think we might have found the perfect car for the job: this electric Mini Moke…

Silent summer loving 

Held in the same esteemed heights as the Citroën Méhari and the Manx Meyers Dune Buggy by car-loving beachgoers from St. Tropez to St. Barts, the Mini Moke is a veritable summer classic. And we reckon this fun electric version might be the perfect beach shuttle for you and your friends and family once this pesky virus goes away and we can all go on a long-overdue holiday to a far-flung (and sun-drenched) location. Powered by a 10-kilowatt battery, the ‘Nosmoke’ Electric Moke is made in France and features power brakes, an in-built sound system and seatbelts for all four passengers. Tempted? This cute baby blue example from 2018 will be auctioned by RM Sotheby’s at its sale of The Elkhart Collection in Indiana on 23–34 October. You can browse the entire catalogue, which is teeming with interesting classics, in the Classic Driver Market.
