Vauxhall has unveiled the new Mokka and Mokka-e.
The new car has a 2mm longer wheelbase, but is now 125mm shorter than the previous generation for added manoeuvrability in urban areas. Boot space has remained unchanged at 350 litres.
Built atop the firm’s Common Modular Platform, the new car is 120kg lighter than its preceding generation. Vauxhall claims the Mokka-e has also gained 30% additional torsional rigidity thanks to the new platform.
Expect a more responsive, agile and fun to drive vehicle than before.
The Mokka-e will be powered by am electric motor that delivers 134bhp and 260Nm of torque. 100kW DC fast-charging will bring the battery to 80% capacity in just 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, the 50kWh battery is good for a range of up to 323km in the Vauxhall Mokka-e.
Design wise, the new car is also the first vehicle to wear Vauxhall’s new brand front fascia. Dubbed the “Vauxhall Vizor”, the new front horizontally frames brand features such as the latest-generation IntelliLux LED matrix headlights.
It also houses the typical wing signature of the LED daytime running lights and it punctuated at its centre by the legendary Vauxhall Griffin.
In the cabin of the Vauxhall Mokka, individually adjustable six-way seats will be available. The interior will also offer Alcantara and classic full leather upholstery options.
A central 7-inch colour touchscreen or the top-of-the-line Multimedia Navi Pro system with a 10-inch colour touchscreen is also available. The Vauxhall Mokka will also offer inductive charging for smartphones.
