All New Vauxhall Mokka Goes Stylish And Fully Electric if You So Desire
This is the new second-generation Mokka, compact SUV, and it’s blazing a new trail for the Vauxhall brand and a future sign of things to come. Despite a slightly longer wheelbase (+2 mm), the new Vauxhall Mokka is 12.5 cm shorter than the previous generation while offering its five passengers a similar loading space of up to 350 litres in its luggage compartment. Its total length of only 4.15 metres makes it super-easy to maneuver and park in urban and suburban areas. The second-generation newcomer also features a new generation fully digital cockpit: the Vauxhall Vizor and the Vauxhall Pure Panel, respectively.
The horizontally stretched instrument panel integrates two widescreen displays; the one in front of the driver is up to 12 inches in size. Driver technologies include ACC (Adaptive Cruise Control), with Stop and Go functionality. In addition, an Active Lane Positioning system automatically keeps the new Mokka in the centre of a lane.
The lighting system too offers premium-class technologies with the adaptive and therefore glare-free IntelliLux LED matrix light with 14 elements. LED headlights at the front and rear, an electric parking brake, as well as traffic sign recognition, are standard throughout the range.
The pure-electric Mokka-e is powered by an electric motor delivering 100 kW (136 hp) and 260 Newton metres of maximum torque, immediately available from a standing start. Drivers functionality includes drive modes – Normal, Eco and Sport. The top speed is electronically limited to 93mph to preserve the energy stored in the 50 kWh battery and the range. A 100 kW DC fast-charging system allowing charging 80% of the battery in just 30 minutes is standard equipment.
The Vauxhall Mokka-e has a purely battery-electric range of up to 201 miles according to WLTP in Normal mode, while the Eco mode supports the driver in achieving the maximum possible range. Whether wall box, high-speed charging or cable solution for the household socket: The new Mokka-e is ready for all charging options, from single-phase to three-phase at 11 kW. It is also covered by an eight-year warranty for the battery.
The all-new, second-generation Vauxhall Mokka will be on sale from late summer 2020 and retail-ready from early 2021. The newcomer will also be offered with diesel and petrol engines. Price? to be confirmed.
