Vauxhall Mokka-e – Electric Road Review

Vauxhall Mokka-e - Electric Road Review

The new Mokka-e features a bold new design language, with class-leading levels of technology and a stylish new design language. The Mokka-e showcase Vauxhall’s new design language, including the new Vauxhall Vizor front end and the new Vauxhall Griffin emblem – both of which will feature on all future Vauxhall models. With an aerodynamic design that cuts drag by up to 16% at motorway speeds compared to the previous model, the new Mokka-e is even more efficient, dynamic and fun to drive.

 

Built on Vauxhall’s multi-energy Common Modular Platform (CMP), the new Mokka measures 4,151mm long, 1,791mm wide (excluding the mirrors), and 1,531mm tall. Compared to the previous model, the new Mokka is 124mm shorter, and 10mm wider, while the wheelbase has been increased by 2mm. The shorter profile and flowing body surfaces give the new Mokka a sporty and dynamic stance.

 

 

Exterior

The exterior of the new Mokka is not only bold and pure but features an aerodynamically efficient design that improves efficiency and cuts emissions. With a drag coefficient (Cd) of just 0.32, the Mokka features one of the lowest drag shapes in its market segment. The new design cuts drag at motorway speeds by up to 16% compared to the previous model.

The Mokka is the second model after the new Crossland to feature Vauxhall’s distinctive new Vizor front-end. A single dark module runs across the front of the vehicle, encompassing the LED headlights and the new Vauxhall Griffin logo. At the rear, the new Mokka nameplate is stretched boldly across the rear of the vehicle, with the short rear overhang complemented by the tail LED lights.

Interior

The design revolution continues inside, with the new Mokka the first Vauxhall model to feature its new Pure Panel digital instrument display. An integrated display contains both the digital instrument panel and the central touchscreen. The design helps reduce the need for multiple buttons and controls, allowing drivers to maintain concentration on the road.

 

The Pure Panel is available in two formats, depending on trim level. Entry versions feature a 7-inch digital instrument panel with 7-inch central touch screen. Premium versions feature a 12-inch digital instrument panel along with a 10-inch central colour touchscreen. Excellent seating engineering is typical of Vauxhall. Six-way ergonomic seats are available in the new Mokka, which are individually adjustable.

 

A sporty Alcantara and a classic full leather interior are also available – with heated front seats and driver’s seat massage function also available. Despite the smaller dimensions, boot capacity remains nearly identical to the previous Mokka iteration. With the rear seats up, the new Mokka has up to 350 litres of boot space, extending to 1,105 litres with the rear row folded.

Electric drivetrain

The fully electric Mokka-e features a 50kWh battery and 100kw (136PS) electric motor to produce 260Nm of torque. The Mokka-e can drive for up to 201-miles on a single charge under WLTP testing and supports up to 100kW rapid charging, with an 80% charge taking just 30 minutes.

 

All Mokka-e models feature a 50kWh lithium-ion battery and a 100kW (136PS) electric motor with 260Nm of torque as standard. The Mokka-e also comes with a standard 11kW on-board charger. Under WLTP tests, the Mokka-e has a range of up to 201 miles from a single charge. Customers can choose between three driving modes, Normal, Eco and Sport to suit their driving requirements and energy consumption.

 

Each mode not only alters the throttle and steering response, but also adjusts the power and torque available.

  • Eco: Power and torque limited to 60kW and 180Nm – maximises vehicle range
  • Normal: Power and torque limited to 80kW and 220Nm – ideal for daily driving
  • Sport: Full power and torque (100kW and 260Nm) – maximises performance

 

Supporting up to 100kW rapid DC charging, an 80% charge takes just 30 minutes in the all new Mokka-e, with the lithium-ion battery guaranteed by an eight-year/100,000-mile warranty.

 

Through a domestic 7kW Wallbox, a 0-100% charge will take 7h 30 min, while a full charge through a 22kW public charger will take 5h 05min. An 80% charge, using a 50kW rapid charger will take 45 minutes. Through the MyVauxhall app, or via the centre console, drivers can also schedule delayed charging, taking advantage of lower electricity tariffs during off-peak hours.

 

 

Connectivity

Always connected:

 

  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard
  • Satellite navigation complemented with live traffic updates
  • Vauxhall Connect features e-Call and b-Call emergency and breakdown recovery
  • MyVauxhall app allows drivers to remotely configure their vehicle

 

All Mokka models come standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for seamless smartphone connectivity. Both services are without any subscription model. The standard Multimedia system also features Bluetooth connectivity, DAB radio, hands-free calls via the steering wheel, and SMS read out and reply functionality.

 

Opting for Multimedia Navi and Multimedia Navi Pro adds satellite navigation with 2D and 3D street level mapping, as well as Live traffic updates. Vauxhall Connect is available across all Nav models and comes with Vauxhall’s e-Call and bCall emergency features.

 

In the instance of a breakdown, the b-Call button puts drivers in touch with a trained advisor who will assist in organising a breakdown recovery service. The e-Call button can be pressed in an emergency, with the system connecting the driver to its trained advisers. The system will also automatically alert the emergency services if the airbags or seatbelt tensioners deploy in an accident. Through Vauxhall Connect, drivers can also access remote functions such as locking and unlocking the car via their smartphone or pre-condition the cabin. On the all-electric Mokkae models, drivers can view the current charge status, configure delayed charging times and plan routes via Vauxhall Connect and the MyVauxhall app.
