Mini Moke returns – but Barbados misses Caribbean distributorship

Mini Moke new old

The Moke: Old and New

The Moke is in production again – this time in China – and the new version remains true to the concept launched by Austin way back in 1964. The car was originally a military version of the famous Austin Mini and is loved by tourists all over the world’s tropical zones. This time it will also have an electric version.

The new manufacturers have just awarded Caribbean Distributorship to a company in the British Virgin Islands: Tola Moke Limited.

The motto on the distributor’s website is “A fleet of Mokes for an army of tourists”

Optimistic yes, but we need some optimism around this place!

Good luck to Bruce Wong of Tola Moke. We hope he sells a bunch ’bout this rock, and we’re really anticipating the electric version.

Nice, safe targets those Christians…
