2020 Vauxhall Mokka goes electric with a distinctive new look

Published 24 June 2020

Vauxhall has unveiled the second-generation Mokka. The 2020 crossover gets a bold new design and a new electric powertrain that will cover up to 201-miles on a single charge. 

Vauxhall has dropped the 'X' from the Mokka branding and given the compact crossover a thorough overhaul inside and out. Prices and further details are expected to be announced in the coming weeks, but we expect a starting price of around £20,000 for the entry-level Mokka and £28,000 for the electric Mokka-e.

The new 2020 Mokka will be available with petrol, diesel and electric options when it goes on sale in a few weeks time. The 136PS electric motor and 50kWh battery setup, as seen in the Corsa-e, will give the Mokka-e an official range of 201 miles, while it offers 100kW DC rapid-charging to replenish 80 per cent in half an hour.

The Hyundai Kona Electric rival can accept single-phase and 11kW three-phase charging, too. Details are yet to be released for the petrol and diesel models.

The compact crossover features a distinctive new look. The grille of the car is now integrated with the matrix LED headlights, which the carmaker calls the 'Vauxhall Vizor'.  

The new Mokka is 10mm wider than before, as well as a substantial 125mm shorter. The wheelbase, meanwhile, is just 2mm longer, so interior space and the 350-litre boot stay the same as before.

High-spec versions will get a new Pure Panel system, with a dual-screen system linking the digital instrument display and infotainment touchscreen - which stretches across the dash. Cheaper variants get a seven-inch touchscreen, with top models receiving a 10-inch screen and a 12-inch dial display.

Tech includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto with integrated voice control, plus the Vauxhall Connect service with live navigation data and eCall emergency call functions.

The new Mokka is 120kg lighter and 30 per cent stiffer than its predecessor, meaning performance and efficiency is improved - according to Vauxhall.

Your site is swamped with advertising and it is becoming difficult for a reader to see the wood for the trees.

Carry on like this and I shall not bother with Honest John which would be a shame for it serves a very useful purpose.

It is sometimes impossible to read certain things on the site when advertisements pop up and there doesn't seem to be any way in which to get rid of them. However, the site must be funded somehow so I have no intention of abandoning it. I find it invaluable.
