If you are happy with a Moke then go with the Moke especially as you have a family experience of Minis.

The dfficulty is the combined engine and gearbox but even that isn't insurmountable. It may just require some unusual engineering or an alternative gearbox.
Have a look here:

Also you can use a chain/belt driven diff and have a sindle speed electric reverse set up and remove the complete engine and gearbox. Have a look for belt driven diffs for trikes.

The light weight of the Moke may be an advantage in terms of the range and performance though top speed may suffer as it is essentially an open top brick.

Where are you based? I was at a Battery Vehicle Society meet last year at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester where there was an electrci Mini Moke.
