Small, discreet SUV, the Opel Mokka found its audience, with more than a million copies sold worldwide under the Opel, Vauxhall and Buick brands. The new generation should take over by adapting to the evolution of the market towards electric motors.
The Opel Mokka was born in 2013 and took the name of Mokka X in 2016 during a re-styling. In 2021, the X will disappear to make way for the Mokka of 2th generation. For its launch, the German manufacturer Opel will prioritize an electric version.
Mokka 2 will likely be based on PSA's CMP platform
Even if Opel wants to be stingy in detail for the moment, the recent acquisition of the manufacturer from Rüsselsheim by the French group PSA suggests that the next Mokka will be based on the new modular and multi-energy platform of the French group, dubbed CMP, at the like the Opel Corsa-e.
This platform is the basis for the Peugeot e-2008 and DS3 Crossback. It should logically share the same electric motors and battery packs.
The Mokka 2 will surely be powered by a 136 horsepower electric powertrain powered by a 50 kWh battery. This configuration should allow it to reach 300 to 320 km of autonomy, like the e-2008 with close dimensions.
Thermal engines will also be on the program
If Opel puts forward the electric version, fans of thermal engines will not be disappointed either: the range of the new Mokka will indeed include petrol and diesel engines.
Based on the case of the e-2008, we can imagine finding the 1.2 turbo three-cylinder engines, developing from 100 to 155 horsepower. For Diesel, the block 4 cylinders 1.5 developing from 100 to 130 horses should also be there.
