Surviving examples of the classic Leyland Moke may be worth serious money these days, but a new Australian firm is offering a brand new recreation of the model without the perils associated with 1960s British engineering.

Moke Makes AutoGenie

 

Moke for Daddy

I am excited! Why? Because a new car without any doors, very few safety features, bereft of any serious technology and only manages 0-100 in way over 10 seconds is about to be released on the market. Well in truth released again for the 4th time. I am talking about the Mini Moke.

 

It started life as a classic utility vehicle but quickly became the most fun you could have on four wheels – if you know what we mean. And now the Chinese auto manufacturer Chery Motors along with its subsidiary, Sicar Engineering, is bringing back the Moke bolstered b y 21st century engineering and reliability.

Remeber these bad boys

The Mini Moke – born in Britain, raised in the colonies, died in Portugal. And now, thanks to a company in Australia, the Moke is being resurrected, with more than a little help from the Chinese. PetrolBlog doesn’t do new car news, but for the Moke we’ll make an exception. Groovy.

The Mini MOKE makes its Comeback

It wouldn't be entirely fair to put the Mini Moke into the 'so bad it's good' category, but the fact remains, the Moke wasn't that great. And yet, despite its tepid performance, questionable off-road ability and tendency to rust, it was a runaway success. Let's face it, the Mini Moke remains one of the coolest cars ever created.

Which is why we're ever so slightly excited about the news that the Moke is to return. It has taken every last drop of willpower not to greet the news with an.... www.cars.uk.msn.com

Moke Hits Roads in 2014

A modern take on the iconic Moke will hit local roads in 2014 with the help of an entrepreneurial Australian company. The ‘Classic Moke’ is the result of a collaboration between Melbourne-based Moke International, Chinese car maker Chery Motors and subsidiary Sicar Engineering, and will see the nameplate return to the market 50 years after the introduction of the original Mini-based beach buggy. www.caradvice.com.au

The MOKE is Back, Baby!

The past two days have been quite an emotional roller coaster. First, we were crushed to hear that the end of the line is fast approaching for the rugged, beloved Land Rover Defender. Next thing we know, we're reading about the resumption of Moke production in China over at Hemmings and everything is sunshine and rainbows once again. www.autoweek.com

 

Mike Built a MOKE

Its name is British slang for 'donkey', but the Moke's latest incarnation by designer Michael Young is no dud. Although it's based on the original "no-doors, no-roof, no-worries" vehicle, the new Moke has been entirely redesigned by the Hong Kong-based designer and his team.

The detachable roof and round headlights now come with a fuel-injected engine and an ice-cooler in the boot. There might even be an electric eco-Moke in the works.. . www.smithjournal.com.au

     

Mini MOKE Staging its Own Comeback?

Of all the bodystyles that Minis have worn over the years – and there have been a lot of them – few have attained the kind of cult status as the Moke. A sort of quirky take on the beach buggy, the Mini Moke was marketed by various concerns until 1993, the year before BMW bought the brand and later relaunched production with its neo-retro design. www.autoblog.com

 

Mini MOKE, Environmentally Friendly Car

Production of the iconic VW camper van comes to an end this year, but as one classic vehicle of the 1960s is killed off, another, the Mini Moke, is to be revived, as an electric car. As the exotic, open-topped sister of the famous Austin Mini, the Moke gained a cult following in warm countries. Twenty years after the last Moke came off the production line....www.eta.co.uk

Top 10 Coolest Cars

It's not that you can't afford a new car, it's just that you might not want one. Why dump a ton of money on a flashy new vehicle would you could spend less money on something that's significantly cooler? These second-hand cars are budget-conscious and, better yet, still hot. The following list was compiled by myself and a good friend who's been in the car game for years. We hope you enjoy, but encourage you to independently research the condition and reliability of any particular model before purchasing.

MOKE makes Comeback, Motoring Australia

The MOKE is back, thanks to an enterprising Australian company that has contracted China's Chery Motors to produce a born-again utility vehicle for release worldwide. It's global launch is at Sydney's Bondi Beach later this month. Created by British-born Hong Kong-based designer Michael Young, the new-millennium MOKE is now in production 20 years after the 1959 original -- built from Mini parts -- was last produced in Portugal in 1992. www.motoring.com.au

     

MOKE makes Un-crate

So you've got your beach house — and a great little boat at the end of your pier for jetting around the water — now what you really need is a Moke International ($TBA) for cruising on land. If you've spent any measure of time in a beach town, you may have run across one of its older siblings, but this model is brand new, and ready for modern roads. Choose between a gasoline-powered four-cylinder version, or a completely-electric version. They come in a number of colors, including orange, red, green, yellow, blue, white, and of course, black. www.uncrate.com

 

The MOKE is Back, At Least for Australia

Twenty years after production ended, the Mini Moke is making a return. Starting out life as a light military vehicle loosely styled on the Jeep created for the BMC by Sir Alec Issigonis (famed for designing the Mini), it later found fame as a beach buggy in countries as far-reaching as the Caribbean, Portugal and Australia. Moke International is the company tasked with bringing it back to life, employing the services of international designer Michael Young.... www.carbuzz.com

     

Dude, let’s head to the beach in the new MOKE

THE Mini Moke, the stripped-out, open-air, British-made car beloved of surf dudes and hardy eccentrics, is making a comeback, only this time it’s called the Moke and it’s made in China, by Australians. The original was designed by Sir Alec Issigonis, the man behind the Mini, and shared many of that car’s parts. It was built to be a scaled-down military off-road vehicle but its low ground clearance made it unsuitable for that role and it was quickly adapted for commercial use as a simple, inexpensive utility car.

Mini MOKE makes a Comeback Interview

Our news service here on Overdrive reported recently that the Mini Moke is making a comeback. First launched in 1964 and originally conceived as a military run about, this stripped-out, open-air car, went on to become a icon car for the fun loving set. With the Beach Boys on the radio and the wind in your hair it was a car from the 60s that could be seen especially in surfing locations. Production of the old model finished in 1993 but now they are going to build a new one. To tell us all about it I have on the line Jim Markos from Moke Motors. www.drivenmedia.com.au

 

Στους Κινέζους πιστώνεται η ανάσταση του MOKE

Τεχνολογικά ξεπήδησε από την μήτρα του Mini που δημιούργησε ο σερ Άλεκ Ισσιγόνης και κυκλοφόρησε στην αγορά από το 1964 μέχρι το 1993, σε ποικίλες εκδόσεις. Το Moke νέας εποχής – με σύχρονα τεχνολογικά χαρακτηριστικά – επιχειρεί να επανακυκ λοφορήσει η κινέζικη Chery Motors που προφανώς κατέχει τα δικαιώματα χρήσης του συγκεκριμένου brand. www.newsbomb.gr

     

Με βοήθεια από την Κίνα ξεκινά η παραγωγή του νέου Mini Moke

Οι Κινέζοι έβαλαν το χέρι τους και πριν το τέλος του χρόνου αναμένεται η επίσημη πρεμιέρα του νέου Mini Moke, 20 χρόνια μετά το τέλος της παραγωγής του μοντέλου της πρώτης γενιάς. Στο μυαλό εκείνων που το κατασκεύασαν προοριζόταν για ένα μικρό στρατιωτικό όχημα. Όμως κατέληξε να γίνει ένα από τα πιο εκκεντρικά οχήματα που παρουσιάσθηκαν ποτέ στους δρόμους παραπέμποντας σε ηλιόλουστα καλοκαίρια και όμορφες παραλίες.
