Electric! New Opel Mokka Takes to the Road
- Electric, naturally: new Mokka available as battery electric vehicle from start of sales
- Testing: second generation Mokka still fully camouflaged
- Really exciting: e-power, compact dimensions, big impression
Rüsselsheim. The new Opel Mokka is on the road, still camouflaged but ready for the first important tests with Opel engineers. And it is electric! The second-generation Mokka is all-new and its new technology including e-power is being thoroughly tested, set up and validated before the market launch. Production will start in the fourth quarter of this year. The first production cars will be electric and are due to arrive at customers in early 2021. The test cars hint at who is behind the camouflage: a large yellow K on the green-black flanks of the test vehicles – K as in Mokka. Yes, simply Mokka.
The new generation dispenses with the X-appendix in the name – as did the bestselling first generation on its debut in 2012. Back then, the Mokka impressed with its compact dimensions and sturdy looks. The new model is likewise small and robust, but in a much more progressive and modern way - even more closely tailored to driving in the city, even more stylish to make a big impression. Extra efficient, clear and bold, and of course all-electric, right from the start of sales. Customers can enjoy the exciting purely battery-electric version but it will also be available with combustion engines.
Although still camouflaged, the new Mokka already shows its crisp proportions with short front and rear overhangs – fully aligned with the further developed Opel design philosophy. The next-generation Mokka combines German engineering with a clear, “detoxed” design language. In addition, drivers and passengers will be able to enjoy a fully digitised interior. The Opel designers paid close attention to reduction to the essentials.
Opel CEO Michael Lohscheller: “I have followed the development of the new Mokka very closely for two and a half years and I am very proud of this new Opel, which will be electric from the very beginning! I can promise that the new Mokka will be one of the most exciting cars in our long history! This second generation shows everything Opel stands for today and in the future, it will change the perception of our brand. Our engineers still have important work to do, but I'm looking forward to presenting the new Mokka soon.”
