Opel introduced the electric version of Mokka for testing

After the transition of Opel “under the wing” PSA three years ago, the Mokka X is the next car in the lineup of the company, which will receive a radical update.

This time, photo spies shared with us pictures of a test prototype that the company is experiencing on the roads of Sweden. The next-generation subcompact crossover is expected to be created on the PSA EMP1 platform used in the Corsa F, second-generation Peugeot 208 and DS3 Crossback.

“The all-new next-generation Mokka X SUV will be fully electrified and will go on sale in 2020,” said a Vauxhall spokesman several months ago.

The technical characteristics of the new product are still unknown, but judging by the DS3 Crossback, the Opel Mokka will receive a 134-horsepower electric motor and a battery with a capacity of 50 kW / h, which will provide a range of 300 km. The DS3 Crossback accelerates to 100 km / h in 8.7 seconds.

Even with heavy camouflage, the new Mokka doesn’t look like its predecessor. Serious updates were visible everywhere, with the front and back seem to be inspired by the latest Corsa. Under the leadership of PSA, Opel designers equipped the model with a more curved roof line and a bulky rear door. Plastic elements can be seen on the lower parts of the body.

It is to be expected that the interior will also noticeably change. Inside, a new front panel, a steering wheel with a sloping bottom, a different infotainment system and, possibly, as an option, a fully digital instrument panel will appear.

We have also heard that in the new generation, Opel can throw the “X” out of the name by simply calling it Mokka.
