Vauxhall Mokka-e reliability & safety
The Mokka-e hasn’t gone through Euro NCAP crash tests just yet, but the car does pack plenty of safety kit and features a well tested electric powertrain
Vauxhall has never had the best track record for reliability, but the Mokka-e does feature the now well proven electric powertrain you’ll find in many other cars in the Stellantis Group, such as the Vauxhall Corsa-e, Peugeot e-208, Peugeot e-2008 and DS 3 Crossback E-TENSE.
Vauxhall Mokka-e reliability & problems
As the Mokka-e has only recently launched, there hasn’t been enough time for owners to report any long-term reliability issues yet. But, as mentioned above, it does share a platform and powertrain with many other electric models, and we’ve yet to hear of any serious reliability issues with those. Vauxhall overall scored 87% for satisfaction in the 2020 Driver Power survey, but that was only enough for it to be ranked 29th out of the 30 brands covered.
At the moment, neither the latest-generation petrol and diesel Mokka nor the Mokka-e have been put through Euro NCAP crash safety tests. But neither Citroen, Peugeot nor Vauxhall has a bad reputation when it comes to safety. The Mokka-e comes with several airbags and ISOFIX points for child seats.
It also comes as standard with automatic emergency braking, as well as lane-keeping assistance and road-sign recognition. Upgrade to the SRi trim level or above and your Mokka-e will be equipped with a 180-degree rear-view camera, adaptive cruise control and IntelliLux LED matrix headlights for improved visibility.
