Vauxhall’s B-segment electric SUV is now on sale

The Vauxhall Mokka-e is now on sale and the Luton brand has confirmed the specifications of each of the four trim levels – including a special top-spec Launch Edition. Buyers will get a lot of kit for their money, with Vauxhall following through on its promise of equipment more commonly found on cars in the segment above.

It’s been over half-a-year since Vauxhall released the major details of its next EV – the Mokke-e compact SUV. We learned most of the major details back then, and Vauxhall confirmed that the car would start from £30,840. Now, with the car available to order, we can bring you the final specifications.

Standard on all models

The 134bhp, 192lb-ft motor and 50kWh battery combo is standard on all spec levels of the Mokka-e. Range is up to 201 miles per charge, with the battery able to be replenished to 80 per cent in 30 minutes from a 100kW DC charger, or the same level in 45 minutes from a 50kW charger. A 22kW public charger takes just over five hours to full, and at home using 7kW, it takes seven and a half hours.

As with the various other cars that share the powertrain, three modes – Eco, Normal and Sport – allow drivers to balance performance and range.

In terms of technology, all cars come with sat nav, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as Bluetooth and USB connectivity, DAB radio, hands-free calls via the steering wheel and text message read out and reply function. A seven inch touchscreen deals with major infotainment controls. The Vauxhall Connect app enables car pre-conditioning, charge status and control, and route planning.

Standard driving assistance features come in the form of: a drowsiness alert, forward collision alert, lane positioning assistant, speed sign recognition, adaptive cruise and speed limiter, automatic emergency city braking, rear parking sensors and a panoramic rear camera, as well as auto wipers, lights and rear view mirror. Outside, 1 -inch alloys are standard.

All of the above pertains to the base SE Nav Premium spec car, which costs £30,840.

Higher spec levels

For £32,380, the Elite Nav Premium looks to be the potential big seller in the range, gaining a higher-spec infotainment system, incorporating two rear USB connections, a larger 10 inch touchscreen as well as a 12 inch digital instrument cluster. Other enhancements include front centre armrest with storage as well as storage pockets on the back of the front seats, heated steering wheel and front seats and keyless start.

Safety features are enhanced with a lane positioning assistant, side blind spot alert and flank guard and front parking sensors. LED front fog lights, chrome-effect front and rear skid plates, 17 inch bi-colour alloys and a black roof finish off the look.

The next car up in the range is the SRi Nav Premium, which costs £32,735 after the plug-in car grant. It gets all of the above but with a few styling enhancements such as a black interior headliner, alloy sport pedals, dark tinted rear windows, black skid plates and 18 inch alloys.

Finally, the Launch Edition comes in at £34,970 and gets a wireless phone charger, advanced park assist, LED matrix headlights with auto headlight levelling, leather seat trim and a massaging driver’s seat. It retains the tinted rear windows and gains 18 inch bi-colour alloys.

All cars can be ordered straight away.

Update 20.12.21: In response to the government reducing the scope of the plug-in car grant so it now only applies to cars under £32,000, Vauxhall has slashed £3000 off the price of its entire Mokka-e range. This means that all trim levels can now be purchased for less than that all-important £32,000 figure, therefore qualifying for the (also reduced) £1500 grant. 

On the road prices including the PiCG are now as follows: SE - £29,365, SRi - £30,435, Elite - £30,080, Ultimate - £30,495.
