Vauxhall has introduced a new 54kWh battery on the Mokka Electric, with the official range increasing to 252 miles - an improvement of 20% over the outgoing 50kWh unit.
The new 54kWh battery, which is also being used in the new Astra Electric and other models, is coupled with a more powerful 153bhp electric motor (an increase of 19bhp), enabling the Mokka Electric to accelerate from 0-62mph in under 10 seconds. Top speed is electronically limited to 93mph.
Supporting up to 100kW rapid charging, the Mokka Electric can be re-charged from 0-80% in around 30 minutes. It also features an 11kW on-board charger as standard, suitable for home charging via a wallbox.
The Mokka was the first Vauxhall to be available with a fully electric powertrain from launch and was also the first model to introduce the new ‘Vizor’ front end design. There are no visual changes to the new version except for an extra wheel option.
Orders for the Mokka Electric with a 54kWh battery will open from March 2023 with first deliveries commencing from the Spring.
