Extended-range Mokka uses a larger, 54kWh unit for a 252-mile range
Electric SUV gets upgraded battery from facelifted Peugeot e-208; will be sold alongside standard-range car
Available to order from March, the updated Mokka Electric is priced from £36,610 for the extended-range car, which uses a larger, 54kWh unit for a 252-mile range.
The long-range model will be sold alongside the standard car, which has the same 50kWh battery and 209-mile range as before.
The available trim levels are Design, GS, and Ultimate. Design cars get 17in alloys, a 7.0in infotainment touchscreen with smartphone mirroring, and a 7.0in digital instrument cluster.
GS trim starts at £38,985 and top-spec Ultimate trim costs a further £2310 more.
GS cars and above get sportier trim elements inside and out, along with diamond-cut 18in alloys and red detailing. The infotainment screen is increased to 10.0in and sits alongside a 12.0in instrument cluster.
Top-spec cars gain additional tech such as adaptive cruise control, matrix LED headlights and massaging seats trimmed in Alcantara.
The driver can configure the electric car using three driving modes: Eco, Normal, and Sport.
The long-range car has the same 54kWh battery as the facelifted Peugeot e-208. It works with an upgraded electric motor, providing 19bhp more than the standard one, at 154bhp, and 191lb ft.
This power increase also means a bump in performance over the standard car. The long-range car sprints to 62mph in 9.0sec, which is 0.2sec quicker than the standard 50kWh car.
Despite the extra performance, Vauxhall says it will achieve 4mpkWh on the combined cycle, which matches the Mazda MX-30.
The Mokka will, like the previous car, support 100kW rapid charging, which can take the battery from 0-80% in 30 minutes.
Vauxhall – which aims to become an all-electric brand by 2028 – currently has no plans to introduce a more powerful, larger-capacity electric Mokka variant, it told Autocar.
