The release of the vehicle follows extensive consultation and discussion with Scottish, English and Welsh mountain rescue teams and sessions with fire services. The mountain rescue edition follows the Munro Mk1 pick-up truck launched in May this year. Both these vehicles enable customers operating in challenging sectors, such as mining, construction, utilities, agriculture and defence to meet decarbonisation targets without compromising on performance.
We have consulted with multiple mountain rescue teams to best understand their unique demands for an all-terrain stretcher bearing vehicle capable of crossing the toughest of terrain” said Munro CEO and Co-Founder Russell Peterson. “ The fact that the Mk1 is such an adaptable platform is a testament to the purity of the design, uncluttered by peripheries. Our no-nonsense vehicles are suited to the toughest of jobs in the harshest of terrains.
The rear bed of the Munro Mk1 can accommodate a 1050 kg Euro Pallet payload, while the performance model has a 3,500 kg maximum braked towing capacity for effortless haulage of any cargo from specialist technical rescue tools to water bowsers and disaster relief equipment.
Producing a prodigious peak power output of 375/280kw combined with instantly available 700Mn/516ft-lb of torque, the Munro Mk1 can sprint to 60 mph in just 4.9 seconds. A 220 KW electric motor and a choice of Utility and Range variants are also offered.
Replenishing the 82.4kWh battery from 15 to 80 percent can be swiftly undertaken using a 100kW DC charger in just 36 minutes. With a fully charged battery, the MK_1 has a range of more than 190 miles, enabling it to operate off-road for up to 16 hours on a single battery charge.
