Munro is a company centred around building EV's for miners, tree surgeons, quarriers, farmers, search an rescue teams and other heavy industry sectors. We are building tough trucks capable of more than that of any road going 4x4.
Munro Vehicles was established in 2021 by Russ Peterson and Ross Anderson with the defined goal of creating a practical, go anywhere do anything EV for the worlds heaviest industries. The team began with a donor chassis, and experimented with various technologies, off road equipment and processes to whittle down the good from the bad and create a massively capable off road vehicle - the very first Munro prototype was born.
“The Munro is a vehicle you can rely on, the most valuable tool at your disposal for any job. You can get into with muddy boots, tow a mini-digger or throw a bale of hay in the back to feed the horses, then drive home.” - Russ Peterson, CEO and Co-founder.
At Munro we are conscious of our impact on the natural environment and are continuously looking for new ways to minimise emissions and improve our use of raw materials.
By manufacturing products that stand the test of time, our vehicles provide maximum return on their initial carbon investment. Instead of selling a new vehicle every three years, we intend to create a circular value chain by offering manufacturer-supported options for refurbishment and upgrade. This benefits our customers, and creates a sustainable future for Munro.
Our electric vehicles are designed for operation in heavy-duty environments, which are often traditionally 'dirty' industries. We are enabling these industries to decarbonise, improve air quality and make more efficient use of energy.
Munro is committed to working with local suppliers wherever possible, and our vehicles are manufactured and assembled here in Scotland. We are working with suppliers to reduce packaging in our supply chain and re-use containers where possible. We plan to minimise our direct emissions by operating a 100% electric factory, supplied by 100% renewable energy. This will either be generated onsite or sourced through renewables suppliers via the grid. We will also operate an all-electric service fleet to support vehicles.
