The much-awaited announcement has been made by Vauxhall. It includes more details about their new and upcoming release of the 2021 Mokka X crossover. There has also been further cleverly disguised images of the latest model of the shown across the web.
The all-new Mokka is set to be much sharper and lighter to drive in comparison to the Mokka X predecessor. That model was discontinued last year ready for the release of this new model.
As well as the standard petrol and diesel models that you would expect to see, the new Mokka X crossover will also be available as an EV that features the same 50kWh battery pack that you’d find in the Corsa-e. It allows for around 200 miles in its range.
Vauxhall has released information that states that the new Mokka X is up to 120kg lighter than the previous model, even though it is still very similar in size. They are also promising a much more sporting drive, even on the heavier electric Mokka-E. This is a fantastic promise to those who really get a thrill from a sporty feeling drive and will appeal to a wider range of consumers. Vauxhall has said that the low-positioned batteries lower the centre of gravity, which helps to improve the drive. This is certainly a great way to both compete with the competition, help them to become leaders in the electric market, and please the drivers who want to help the environment but still get a similar drive experience to the standard petrol and diesel engines.
The most recent teaser images of the Mokka X crossover show that it is going under tests, with the latest phase being high-speed testing on some of Germany’s well-known test tracks. The Mokka is also being put through the paces on uneven surfaces to test its drive potential to the max. These are said to replicate some of the most tricky road surfaces across the whole of Europe, which is reassuring if this car is on your list fo contenders. One of the weakest points on the Mokka predecessor was the sound-deadening quality. Vauxhall is aiming to provide a much sought after improvement in this area for the new model and consider it to be something really important to the final pieces overall impressions in quality.
Although the latest images show the new Mokka X crossover as heavily camouflage, it looks as the new model is set to adopt a lower profile and sleeker body than that of the Mokka predecessor. The rear of the model looks extremely similar to that of the new Corsa, it also shares it’s CMP platform with the Corse.
