THE replacement for that leasing broker favourite – the Vauxhall Mokka – is undergoing a variety of final testing trials.
From the Arctic Circle to a German handling course designed to replicate every road type in Europe, a disguised Mokka is being made retail ready.
The car is based on Vauxhall’s’s CMP multi-energy platform (Common Modular Platform), which allows the use of purely battery-electric drive as well as internal combustion engines from the same platform.
The new Mokka weighs up to 120 kilograms less than the previous model – with almost the same wheelbase and tyre sizes.
The electric Mokka-e features batteries installed deep in the vehicle floor, which lowers the centre of gravity and at the same time increases torsional rigidity by a further 30 per cent.
Build is due to start at the end of the year with the new Mokka available to order from early 2021.
