Vauxhall has set a standard with the launch of the new Mokka-e, an electric SUV with a big personality. Vauxhall intends all their new vehicles to follow a similar spec to the Mokka-e going forward, which means a bold design, including the Vauxhall Vizor and Pure Panel, and vehicles that are fully electric from launch. Below are some of the stand-out features of the new Mokka-e.
For the first time, Vauxhall has unveiled a Mokka vehicle that’s available in an electric version. The Mokka-e is powered by an electric motor that is powerful, fast-charging, and reliable. The motor delivers 100kW (134bhp) and 192ft of maximum torque from a standing start, enough to satisfy fans of the model. There are three modes of operation - normal, eco, and sport. Each mode has particular settings relating to power output and battery conservation.
To preserve the battery and improve the range of the vehicle, its top speed is limited to 93mph. In terms of charging the battery, it’s super quick. Using its 100kW DC fast-charging system, The Mokk-e battery can be 80% charged in just 30 minutes. The electric-battery range offers drivers up to 201 miles on a full charge, and there is a range of charging options for all circumstances. Choose from a wall box, high-speed charging, or a cable solution for the household socket.
The new Vauxhall Mokka-e is smaller than previous generations while still offering its five passengers a loading space of up to 350 litres. It also incorporates the latest digital technology into the cabin. The easy-to-use touchscreen connects your phone to the car and allows you to browse music and make calls entirely hands free and without any obstructive wires. The state-of-the-art navigation system is also fully integrated and easy to use - it gets you to your destination without fuss and indicates electric charging stations along the way.
Vauxhall’s Managing Director Stephen Norman has stated that in the second generation of Mokka vehicles, the first being launched in 2012, the philosophy continues to be bold and pure. Simply looking at the vehicle from the outside certainly gives this impression. The Mokka displays athletic proportions, bold colours, and flowing surfaces. The all-new Vauxhall Vizor runs along the front beneath the bonnet and contains Intellilux LED Matrix headlights. The Vizor is punctuated by the classic Vauxhall Griffin in the centre and will be used throughout the 2020s.
The Mokka-e is an SUV in all but size. It provides drivers with an elevated cabin and driving position for maximum visibility, a state-of-the-art interior, and a feeling of security for you and your family. But the Mokka-e offers further benefits over conventional SUVs. Without sacrificing any interior space, the Mokka-e has a smaller chassis making city parking much more accessible. Furthermore, with many cities introducing low-emissions zones, the Mokka-e is the electric SUV you need for inner-city driving.
