For the first time in the company’s history, the new Vauxhall Mokka will be available from the first day with an all-electric variant (as well as petrol and diesel engines).
The Vauxhall Mokka-e has a purely battery-electric range of up to 201 miles according to WLTP in Normal mode.
The new Mokka is based on a new version of the company’s multi-energy platform CMP (Common Modular Platform) which allows the use of a purely battery-electric drive as well as internal combustion engines.
The Mokka-e’s electric motor delivers 100 kW (136 hp) and 260 Nm of maximum torque, immediately available from a standing start.
Drivers can choose between three drive modes – Normal, Eco and Sport – with the top speed being electronically limited to 93mph to preserve the energy in the 50 kWh battery and the driving range.
The new Mokka-e can be charged at home, at a three-phase 11 kW commercial electricity supply, or using rapid charging. A 100 kW DC fast-charging system allows charging 80% of the battery in just 30 minutes. It’s also covered by an eight-year warranty for the battery.
The new Mokka is 120kg lighter than the previous model, but also has 30% more body stiffness in the case of the electric version with its low-mounted, integrated battery structure.
It also features the new Vauxhall design direction and a next generation fully digital cockpit. The instrument panel integrates two widescreen displays, with the one in front of the driver being up to 12 inches in size.
The new generation Mokka will be on sale from late summer 2020 and available in retailers from early 2021.
