“The new Mokka is a headturner and will change the perception of our brand! With the Mokka, we are reinventing Opel and introducing our design of the next decade.”
– Opel CEO Michael Lohscheller –
Opel reveals the second generation of its compact bestseller, a powerful, completely new Mokka that combines fun and modernity. It is capable of zero emission electric driving, it is highly efficient and more compact than ever. “It is the first Opel that is electric right from its market start; a real proof that Opel goes electric”, said Opel boss Michael Lohscheller.
Its total length of only 4.15 metres makes it super-easy to manoeuvre and park in urban and suburban areas. The design of the new Mokka surprises with stunning proportions and captivating precision from its overall, bold looks characterised by short overhangs and a well-planted, wide stance, down to the smallest detail.
Strong expression: The newcomer also stands out as the first model that features the future brand face: the Opel Vizor. It is an elegant module that horizontally frames brand features such as the latest-generation IntelliLux LED® matrix headlights and the typical wing signature of the LED daytime running lights, proudly punctuated in its centre by the legendary Opel Blitz. The Opel Vizor invented by the team around design chief Mark Adams will featured on all of the brand’s models throughout the 2020s.
The Opel Pure Panel detoxes driving experience. The next generation fully digital cockpit repeats the design intention of the Opel Vizor. Two wide screens of up to 10 and 12 inches in size welcome the occupants; the central display is deliberately tilted to the driver and the air vents are pushed to the background to enhance a focused experience.
The Opel Mokka-e has a purely battery-electric range of up to 322 kilometres according to WLTP1 in Normal mode, while the Eco mode supports the driver in achieving the maximum possible range. Whether wall box, high-speed charging or cable solution for the household socket: The new Mokka-e is ready for all charging options, from single-phase to three-phase at 11 kW. It also convinces with an eight-year warranty for the battery.
The engineering team in Rüsselsheim has particularly worked on massively containing weight on one hand, saving up to 120 kg vs the previous generation, and enhancing the body stiffness on the other hand, gaining up to 30% torsional stiffness in the case of the electric version with its low-sitting integrated battery structure. The benefits are obvious: the new Mokka consumes substantially less energy, while being much more responsive, agile and fun to drive.
The electric motor delivers 100 kW (136 hp) and 260 Newton metres of maximum torque, immediately available from a standing start. Fast reactions, agility and dynamics are among the outstanding characteristics.
In the second generation, the Mokka’s name is again simply Mokka, just like at its debut in 2012. “Bold and pure is our consistent mantra”, says Opel CEO Michael Lohscheller. For the first time at Opel, the model name proudly spreads out in the centre of the rear panel, using a new, precisely chiselled techy font.
