Summary


Formerly known as the Mokka-e’, the Vauxhall Mokka Electric 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.

This 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 February 2024, the Vauxhall Mokka Electric holds a New Car Expert Rating of A, with a score of 70%. It scores highly for its low running costs and for having zero tailpipe emissions, but its safety rating is pretty poor for a fairly new model and we don’t yet have any reliability data.

The Vauxhall Mokka Electric is a very affordable car to own and run, according to whole-life cost numbers provided exclusively to The Car Expert by our data partner, Clear Vehicle Data.

Electrical efficiency (the EV equivalent of miles per gallon for a petrol or diesel car) is very good, which helps the Mokka to achieve a 200+ mile range despite a modest battery size. In real-world driving, this should still exceed 150-odd miles so is plenty for everyday needs – although you’ll be stopping fairly frequently on long road trips.

Insurance costs should be affordable, thanks to very low insurance group ratings, while servicing and maintenance costs for the first five years are excellent.
