Expert Rating

Vauxhall Mokka-e

(2021 – present)

    Summary


    The Vauxhall Mokka-e is Vauxhall’s first mainstream electric compact SUV and evolved from the latest generation of the mainstream Mokka range – this launched in 2021 with bolder styling than its predecessor.

    The electric Mokka is front-wheel-drive and powered by a 136 hp drivetrain. Three driving modes are available, Normal, Eco and Sport, and in Normal mode Vauxhall claims a battery range of 201 miles. The car also includes as standard a 100kW fast-charging system to allow battery replenishment to 80% in 30 minutes.

    The mainstream Mokka receives generally average reviews, some media expressing surprise that it sells so well despite it being less practical and not as fun to drive as rivals. However the electric version produces more positive responses, the Daily Mirror dubbing it Vauxhall’s best car in years and Carbuyer stating that “it looks great and is designed to feel like a petrol car.”

    The electric drivetrain is quiet and refined at higher speeds, while ride quality is highlighted, even on rougher surfaces. However the car’s acceleration is eclipsed by many rivals and its handling considered distinctly average.

    The styling also earns praise – the electric model has a slightly changed front-end over the petrol version, to cut drag and increase battery range, and reviewers particularly like the bold treatment.

    Minus points include practicality – the Mokka range offers less interior space than rivals and accommodating batteries cuts another 40 litres from the boot.

    As of July 2022, the Vauxhall Mokka-e currently holds an Expert Rating of 71% from 21 reviews. As it is a new car more reviews will no doubt follow, potentially changing its rating. Note also that much written about the mainstream Mokka range also applies to the Mokka-e – this currently has an Expert Rating of 68%, four points behind its electric counterpart.
