Vauxhall unveils the new second generation Mokka with bold looks, a high seating position and emission-free electric drive.

26 Jun 2020 | International News : U.K.

Electric plus emission-free plus energetic equals the new Vauxhall Mokka. The British Brand now reveals the second generation of its compact bestseller, a powerful, completely new Mokka that perfectly combines fun and modernity.

It is capable of zero emission electric driving, it is highly efficient and more compact than ever - perfectly tuned for the town and motorway.

Vauxhall's Pure Panel cockpit detoxes the driving experience and focuses on what is needed
The new Vauxhall Mokka has a total length of 4,150mm, only 125mm shorter while having a 2mm longer wheelbase, while offering 350 litres in its luggage compartment. It is also the first model to feature the future brand face and next generation fully digital cockpit - the Vauxhall Vizor and the Vauxhall Pure Panel.

The horizontally stretched instrument panel integrates two widescreen displays, with the one in front of the driver up to 12.0-inches in size. Vauxhall designers kept control buttons for essential functions, allowing intuitive usage and the driver's continuous focus on the road, avoiding hazardous exploration into sub-menus.

The new Mokka continues Vauxhall's tradition of opening up innovative technologies from upper classes to a wide range of buyers. These include advanced systems such as Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go function, which enables the driver to endure traffic jams in a light-hearted, cool way as the electric Mokka-e can automatically adjust its speed to that of the preceding vehicle automatically. The Active Lane Positioning system automatically keeps the new Mokka in the centre of a lane.

The centre console includes a wireless charger with a rubber mat to prevent devices from sliding
The lighting system too offers premium-class technologies with the adaptive glare-free IntelliLux LED matrix light with 14 elements, unique in the category. All Mokka model variants come standard with LED lights at the front and rear, an electric parking brake as well as traffic sign recognition. A 180-degree panoramic rear-view camera is also available.

Various six-way ergonomic seats are available, which are individually adjustable. A sporty Alcantara and a classic full leather interior are both orderable - highly unusual for a vehicle in the B-segment. The crowning glory is the heated leather seat with perforated surface and massage function for the driver.

The new Mokka is based on a new version of the company's highly efficient multi-energy Common Modular Platform (CMP). This lightweight and efficient modular system offers maximum flexibility in vehicle development and allows the use of electric drive as well as internal combustion engines. Compared to the previous generaton, the newcomer is 120kg lighter and 30% stiffer in the case of the electric version with its low-mounted, integrated battery structure.

The CMP substantially reduces energy consumption, while being much more responsive and fun to drive
For the first time in Vauxhall's history, the new Mokka will be available from the first day with an all-electric variant. Driving the Mokka-e combines emission-free operation with an exhilarating experience. The electric motor delivers 134bhp and 260Nm of maximum torque, immediately available from a standing start.

Fast reactions, agility and dynamics are among the outstanding characteristics. 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 150km/h to preserve range and energy stored in the 50kWh battery. A 100kW DC fast-charging system allowing charging 80% of the battery in just 30 minutes. The Vauxhall Mokka-e has a purely battery-electric range of up to 323km in Normal mode, while the Eco mode supports the driver in achieving the maximum possible range. The new Mokka-e is ready for all charging options, from single-phase to three-phase at 11kW. It is also covered by an eight-year warranty for the battery.
