Vauxhall has revealed a new electric version of the Vauxhall Mokka which the company believes marks the start of a new direction for the company.
Vauxhall has developed several versions of the new Mokka, one of them being fully electric. The electric motor delivers 100 kW (136 hp) and 260 Newton metres of maximum torque, immediately available from a standing start. Drivers can choose between three drive modes – Normal, Eco and Sport – for a good balance or the most fun, depending on their preferences. 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 percent of the battery in just 30 minutes.
“New Mokka is the start of a new direction for the Vauxhall Brand. A bold new design with elements like Vauxhall Vizor and Pure Panel that will become part of signature look for future models. It also encompasses everything that Vauxhall will define in the future. Fully electric from launch and packed with innovative technologies bringing the best of automotive mobility to all. Vauxhall may be Britain’s oldest car manufacturer but with New Mokka it is defining itself to lead in an exciting and innovative future,” said Stephen Norman, Managing Director, Vauxhall Motors.
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 new Mokka will be on sale from late summer 2020 and available in retailers from early 2021.
