Todd Rome, Founder of Blue Jets, Launches E-Version of the Moke

You may remember the dynamic New Yorker Wall St.-exec-turned-luxury-travel-entrepreneur, Todd Rome, who founded the private jet travel company Blue Star Jets in the early 2000s.

Todd Rome has moved from a successful venture in luxury jets to launching a newly designed electric version of the World famous Moke vehicle.

Founding Blue Star Jets allowed Todd to travel all over the world. During his visits to places like St. Bart’s and St. Tropez, he found and fell in love with the MOKE vehicles. He then acquired the rights to finally bring the Moke cars home to America in the summer of 2017, thus the beginning of his newest luxury travel business venture, MOKE America.

MOKE America has come home for the newly designed electric version of the Moke car that is being launched the U.S.

The new Moke design has extended leg room and trunk space, a modern sound system, and 8 custom color and stereo options. Its lithium battery can be charged with any standard three-prong North American plug outlet.

The vehicle is expected to be popular from Hawaii to the Hamptons and metro areas of California, Florida and coastal America..
