Sarasota’s Cruise Car has secured the contract to build an electric version of the cult MOKE vehicle brand.(Brigitte Bardot drove it in St.Tropez.) Initially envisioned in the 1950s as a lightweight, parachute-droppable vehicle for the British military, MOKE vehicles are now used around the world as a beach vacation car in “sunshine territories.” Cruise Car builds two- to 30-passenger electric and solar electric passenger shuttles, and a wide variety of light utility carts. This joint venture will create a street legal, electric, low-speed (top speed just under 25 mph) version of the MOKE. The first vehicles are slated to be delivered late August 2017. A national network of car dealers is being established.
