Vauxhall releases new Mokka-e electric car
New all-electric sports utility vehicles offers over 200 miles of range
Vauxhall have just released its new Mokka and there is an electric version of the sports utility vehicle. It features Vauxhall’s Vizor front end with a new Vauxhall Griffin emblem in an aerodynamic package that cuts drag by up to 16 percent at motorway speeds compared to the previous model. Vauxhall says the new Mokka-e is even more efficient, dynamic and fun to drive.
Built on Vauxhall’s multi-energy Common Modular Platform (CMP), the new Mokka-e measures 4,151mm long, 1,791mm wide (excluding the mirrors) and is 1,531mm tall. Compared to the previous model, the new Mokka-e is 124mm shorter, and 10mm wider, while the wheelbase has been increased by 2mm. The shorter profile and flowing body surfaces give the new Mokka-e a sporty and dynamic aesthetic.
The fully electric Mokka-e features a 50kWh battery and 100kw (136PS) electric motor that produces 260Nm of torque. It can drive for up to 201-miles (324km) on a single charge and comes with a standard 11kW on-board charger. It also supports up to 100kW rapid charging, with an 80 percent charge taking just 30 minutes.
Through a domestic 7kW wall box a full charge will take around seven and a half hours, while a full charge through a 22kW public charger will take five hours. Drivers can use the MyVauxhall app or the centre console to schedule delayed charging and take advantage of lower electricity tariffs during off-peak hours.
The Mokka-e features three driving modes to suit driving requirements and energy consumption. Each mode not only alters the throttle and steering response but also adjusts the power and torque available. In Eco mode power and torque are limited to 60kW and 180Nm to maximise vehicle range. Normal mode is designed for daily driving with power and torque limited to 80kW and 220Nm, while Sport mode maximises performance and offers full power and torque at 100kW and 260Nm. The Mokka-e is on sale now, with prices starting from £30,840.00 OTR (after PICG) with the launch edition costing £34,970 (after PICG).
