With rising gas prices and periodic shortages, Biden’s announcement of a government EV fleet and VW’s vow to phase out gas-powered cars by 2030, Americans are making the switch to electric vehicles in huge numbers. One company has been behind the wheel propelling the change, Moke America.
Founded by Todd Rome in 2017, Moke America’s cruisers have become synonymous with luxury and happy vibes. Each electric-powered vehicle is hand-built and custom made. Starting at $19,975, the Moke is 100% electric, street legal and good for the planet. The open-air cars come in 12 bright colors and customizable fun options. Classified as a Low Speed Vehicle (LSV), Moke America’s cruisers follow the rules set forth by the NHTSA for that category.
This summer, Italian designer Valentino wrapped a fleet of Mokes for their pop-up in Southampton, NY – called Valentino Episode Hamptons. Celebrities and influencers Nicky Hilton, Elsa Hosk and Tina Leung were spotted in coral reef wrapped Mokes, echoing a throwback print by Valentino. The activation was produced by Triton Productions.
Moke America also announced an exclusive, limited edition 007 Moke, in partnership with EON Productions and inspired by James Bond in Live And Let Die (1973). The “San Monique” edition can be purchased across North America, the Caribbean, the Bahamas and the Middle East and retails for $26,975 USD (excludes delivery).
Over the years, Moke America has also partnered with Fred Segal, Louis Vuitton, Saks Fifth Avenue, SLS Hotels, Barry’s Bootcamp, Vilebrequin, Faena Bazaar, Hammacher Schlemmer and Exclusive Resorts. Celebrity fans of Moke America include Billy Joel, Joe Jonas, Sophie Turner, Kris Jenner and Tommy Lee – to name a few.
