Opel Makes Changes To Improve It’s Popular Mokka-e B-UV!

New Name, New E-Motor, New Battery-Pack...

Stellantis’ Opel Mokka-e B-segment utility vehicle (UV) was the best-selling battery-electric vehicle (BEV) in Germany in October and November. Now Stellantis’ engineers are making the Mokka-e even more powerful and efficient, with a new 54 kWh battery pack.

The new lithium-ion battery pack comes from the new Astra Electric and allows the Mokka-e to cover up to 406 kilometers (252 miles) instead of the 338 kilometers (210 miles) with its former battery pack. That is an improvement of about 20%. But that’s not the only thing that the Mokka-e takes from the new Astra Electric.

Opel is also changing the name of the vehicle. Instead of the Opel Mokka-e moniker, it has now, it will be known from this point on simply as the Opel Mokka Electric.

At the same time, engineers have worked on the vehicle’s energy consumption, to help it decrease to 15.2 kWh per 100 kilometers. Those improvements were done by optimizing the HVAC and propulsion systems.

The Mokka Electric also gets a new e-motor from the Astra Electric as well. This new unit produces 115 kW (154 horsepower) and 260 N⋅m (191 lb.-ft.) of torque. The new drive motor really doesn’t improve performance all that much, but Opel says it will to 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in under 10-seconds, and has a top speed of 150 km/h (93 mph). It is important to point out that the Mokka-e had a 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) time of 9.2 seconds.

As for charging, expect the Mokka Electric to reach its 80% level in 30 minutes at a 100 kW DC fast-charging station. Drivers can also charge using three-phase alternating current (AC) thanks to the vehicle’s onboard 11kW charger, via a wall box or cable from a household socket.

Opel looks to be an all-electric brand by 2028 in Europe.
