Just released from Vauxhall HQ are these snapshot images of the exciting new Mokka set to go on sale in the second half of 2020 with deliveries expected early 2021. This will be the first Vauxhall to be launched with a choice of petrol, diesel and electric powertrains from the off.
The bold new design penned with Chief Vauxhall Designer Mark Adams team has sculpted a strong and muscular body shape with a distinctive ‘Vauxhall Vizor’ front grille incorporating lights and the famous Griffin badge. The lights are sleek yet powerful featuring the latest generation IntelliLux LED matric headlight technology. This new front end design will flow into all of the new Vauxhall product range going forward. We can’t wait to see how it looks in the flesh!
This new Mokka is a completely new product from the ground up. It’s based on Vauxhall’s new Common Modular Platform which allows for complete flexibility when it comes to power sources. So like we mentioned before this vehicle is offered in petrol, diesel, and electric and this is thanks to that new platform that allows for batteries to be placed in the chassis without being an afterthought taking up room in the cabin or boot. Another key feature of this new platform is weight saving. This Mokka saves a staggering 120kg’s over the previous generation Mokka. It also uses the latest technology to enhance stiffness by 30% over the last Mokka resulting in a safer and more enjoyable drive.
The electric motor in this new Mokka delivers 100KW (136h) and 260 Newton meters of torque from a standing start. Think Star Trek and you’ll get the picture, stick your foot down and immediate power is delivered to the wheels propelling you in a way a combustion engine can’t match. 3 drive modes will be available- Normal, Eco, and Sport so you can play around with a driving style that suits your mood! The range is excellent with WLTP figures of 201 miles. A fast-charging system will allow an 80% charge in just 30 minutes. We think the Mokka-e could well be the car that tempts people away from their traditional diesel or petrol cars.
Inside the Mokka is just as futuristic and engaging. A fully digital cockpit envelops the driver with crisp clear graphics projected onto a horizontally stretched instrument panel creating two widescreen displays, the one in front of the driver is a staggering 12 inches in size. However, Vauxhall has kept safety in mind and has kept some control buttons close to hand to allow for accessing essential functions without the need to navigate through digital sub-menus.
The wheelbase has been increased by 2mm over the old Mokka and the overall car is 10mm wider. These dimensions may seem small but result in significantly more cabin space and enhanced comfort. The boot space is a competitive 350litres, more than enough room for shopping, trips away, and sports kit.
Standard kit is generous with all variants coming standard with LED headlights front and rear, an electric parking brake, and traffic sign recognition.
