Vauxhall tests the new next-generation Mokka on the road to production readiness in the Arctic winter in of Swedish Lapland.

18 May 2020 | International News : U.K.

Dynamic, efficient and high quality - these are just a few of the development objectives of the all new Vauxhall Mokka.

With typical precision, the engineers have been putting the finishing touches to the next-generation bestseller.

They are currently setting up the new Mokka for optimum acoustic comfort in the interior, excellent driving safety at high speeds and Vauxhall-typical steering and pedal feel.

Since February 2020, the Vauxhall experts for chassis, powertrain, electronics and lighting have been using the Arctic winter for the tuning of chassis and assistance systems on frozen lakes and narrow country roads in Swedish Lapland.

The next Vauxhall Mokka generation is a completely new design based on the company's highly efficient Common Modular Platform multi-energy platform (CMP). This modular platform offers maximum flexibility in vehicle development. The CMP also allows the use of purely battery-electric drive as well as internal combustion engines. The customer has the choice.

The Mokka's weight has been significantly reduced up to 120kg thanks to high-strength steels
Thanks to the use of high-strength steels, the vehicle weight is low and the body stability is high. The new Mokka weighs up to 120kg less than the previous model - with almost the same wheelbase and tyre sizes.

With the electric Mokka-e, the batteries are installed deep in the vehicle floor, which lowers the centre of gravity and at the same time increases torsional rigidity by a further 30% - excellent prerequisites for dynamic driving.

Customers can look forward to a very agile second-generation Mokka, which will be available in dealerships from early 2021. Until then, the testing continues at full speed. When the Mokka has achieved production readiness, cars will start rolling off the assembly line at the end of 2020.
