Under the Mokka-e's stylish bodywork is the same powertrain you’ll find in the Stellantis Group’s other electric offerings. It doesn’t shove you back in your seat like a Tesla or some other electric cars do, but it'll get the car up to motorway speeds with ease. At that point, the powertrain is quiet and adds a new level of refinement to the Mokka-e’s driving experience.

Vauxhall Mokka-e 0-62mph, top speed and acceleration

There’s only one single-motor, front-wheel-drive powertrain option for the Mokka-e. It uses the same 134bhp motor as the Vauxhall Corsa-e, Peugeot e-208 and DS 3 Crossback E-TENSE. It offers reasonable performance and good efficiency; the Mokka-e has a 0-62mph time of 8.5 seconds and top speed of 93mph. However, while the standard version might not offer the same amount of shove as other electric cars, it has been confirmed that a VXR-badged Mokka-e is on the way. 

Handling

The Mokka-e is comfortable; its suspension copes with potholes and bumps quite well, especially at lower speeds around town. In those situations, it handles well, but increase your speed and the Mokka-e loses that level of comfort and control – but we’d never say the ride becomes truly uncomfortable. If you’re looking for a more involving-to-drive small electric car, then maybe look closer at the MINI Electric. But, for everyone else, the Mokka-e feels safe and stable, which is great for a small SUV.
