After what is said to have been a 20-year hiatus, the popular Moke vehicle previously frequently used by tourists in Barbados, has returned.

Spearheading the revival of the Moke in the Caribbean is Alain Edery of CaraibCar in St Barts, who has been appointed the master distributor for the Caribbean.

Additionally, Mathieu Issa, who is presently based in Barbados, has taken up the role of brand ambassador, ensuring that every island knows that the all-new Moke is back and ready to roll. Officials said that since its inception in the early 1960s the Moke has been associated with utility, functionality and fun, adding that “the real deal Moke is back and looking for suitably enthused partners to put this iconic car back on the roads of Barbados and the wider Caribbean”.

“Barbados has had a long history with the Moke and when tourists thought of Barbados they also thought of the Moke,” they said.

Moke International said the new vehicle had kept its well known design but included “some modern refinements which include a new efficient 1.0L fuel injected engine, a wider, longer chassis and improved seating”.

There is also a plan to have an “environmentally and fuel saving EV model” late next year.
