Elbow Beach Capital CEO, Jon Pollock, commented: “This is a huge achievement for Munro. The company has achieved significant scale-up progress over the last 12 months, which is reflected in a material customer pipeline and orders. There is a notable gap in the market for high quality, durable, off-road electric 4×4 vehicles for demanding industries and the completion of the Series-M Utility positions Munro as the go-to provider of 4x4s for big sectors such as mining, construction, and agriculture.

Jakob Mining Vehicles: Munro has signed an exclusive partnership with Jakob Mining Vehicles (JMV) in an agreement worth >£50m to provide the company with 900 vehicles over the next five years all designed specifically for the mining industry’s demanding needs. The mining industry is responsible for up to 7% of global greenhouse gas emissions.
