The Mokka-e introduces Opel’s (and Vauxhall’s) new design language, which presents clean lines that give the car a premium appearance. The new ‘Vizor’ front is especially distinctive with the lights and radiator, including the new brand logo, forming one cluster. The distinctive two-tone bodywork, differentiating the bonnet and the roof, offers multiple possibilities to personalise the vehicle.
The acceleration of the Mokka-e is rapid compared to most competitors with similar power output, going from 0-100km/h in 8.5 seconds, and the 50kWh battery gives it a range of 322 kilometres on the WLTP cycle. If buyers opt for the 11Kw on-board charger, the car can be recharged, using a 100kW DC fast-charger, to 80% battery capacity in 30 minutes.
The new ‘Pure Panel’ dashboard stands out in the interior, featuring either a 10-inch or 12-inch touchscreen, but there are also physical controls for the infotainment system and climate control. Good price positioning is coupled with a high level of standard equipment from the entry-level trim upwards. Even the basic version of the Mokka-e is equipped with climate control, an automatically-dimming interior mirror, and a light and rain sensor as standard. 'Eco' or 'Sport' driving modes and adaptive cruise control are also included, as are ‘Keyless Start’ and ‘Opel Connect’, with which drivers can request data about the car remotely via smartphone.
