New Vauxhall Mokka X and Vivaro to get electric power in 2020
Vauxhall has confirmed that the next-generation versions of its Mokka X small family SUV and Vivaro van, set to go into production in 2020, will be available with electric power.
The British brand has also revealed further details of the upcoming plug-in hybrid version of its larger Grandland X SUV. A total power output of 296bhp is promised, along with what the manufacturer is calling 'e-All-Wheel-Drive' four-wheel-drive capability.
The Grandland X hybrid will arrive in 2019, along with a fully electric version of the Vauxhall Corsa supermini. We've driven Vauxhall's GT X experimental prototype, which showcases the electric drivetrain that'll power the 'eCorsa'.
Vauxhall plans to offer an electrified version of every model in its range by 2025, and its electrification will happen in tandem with fellow PSA Group brands Citroen, Peugeot and DS.
The Grandland X PHEV shares much under the metal with the upcoming DS 7 Crossback E-Tense and Peugeot 3008 PHEV SUVs, while the eCorsa powertrain will also be found in the DS 3 Crossback E-Tense and an electrified version of the next-generation Peugeot 208.
