New Vauxhall Mokka revealed with electric powertrain

5

Vauxhall has revealed the all-new Mokka, which will go on sale later this year with a choice of petrol, diesel and electric powertrains.

The compact SUV has been significantly redesigned with a bold new look, featuring the new brand ‘face’ of Vauxhall, and a new ‘pure panel’ cockpit design - both of which are likely to appear on future models.

From launch, the Mokka will be available with the PSA Group’s 136PS electric motor and 50kWh battery setup, as seen in the Corsa-e, giving a range of 201 miles.

There will also be petrol and diesel models, but details of those have yet to be published.

The new Mokka is 12.5cm shorter than the previous generation, while offering a similar loading space of up to 350 litres in its luggage compartment. Vauxhall says its total length of 4.15 metres makes it “super-easy” to manoeuvre and park in urban and suburban areas.

Inside, drivers are presented with a pair of high-resolution widescreen displays that stretch horizontally across the dash.

Buttons for critical functions have been retained, making it easier for drivers to make adjustments while driving.

The new Mokka’s platform is up to 120Kg lighter and 30% stiffer than that of its predecessor. This improves performance and efficiency, while also enhancing driveability.

Specification inludes LED headlights, adaptive cruise control, wireless phone charging and VauxhallConnect Live services.

Prices and further details are expected to be announced in late Summer, when the car is available to order. First deliveries are expected to commence in early 2021.
