Since the brand was revived in 2017, the company has been operating between both the Midlands and France. Moke confirmed the brands move back to the UK was made possible by Government grant funding.

They also confirmed the recent trade deal which allows UK automotive businesses tariff-free access to the EU market was also an important incentive.

Moke has confirmed the new UK move will lead to the creation of “key commercial jobs”.

These new roles will help the brand into its “next growth stage” including a step into the international market.

Isobel Dando, CEO of Moke International said the move was a “homecoming” for the iconic brand.

Ms Dando confirmed there was “significant demand” for Moke vehicles in the UK.

He said: “The return of full Moke production to British shores represents a homecoming for one of our nation’s best-loved icons.

“Since reviving the marque in 2017 we have re-captivated existing enthusiasts and introduced an entirely new generation to Moke’s perfect combination of fun, utility and open-air thrills.

“This has been reflected in significant demand from our home market, affirming our plans to light up beach resorts around the world through the global market introduction of the ultimate waterfront-to-beach house vehicle.”

According to Moke, their models will now be built at a “state-of-the-art” facility operated by British manufactures Fablink Group.

Fablink has over 500,000 ft of production space and has around 700 engineers.

They have also worked with some of Britain’s biggest manufacturers including Jaguar Land Rover and Morgan.

From the revival in 2017, Fablink’s team has worked alongside Moke engineers to help scale production.
