Interior, dashboard & comfort rating

3.5 out of 5

The Mokka Electric’s interior is dominated by the Pure Panel infotainment setup featuring a central infotainment screen and digital driver’s display. Other than that, the cabin is the same as in its petrol and diesel-engined counterparts. For some, it may be disappointing that the Mokka Electric doesn’t feel like a futuristic electric car inside. But for others, especially those picking their first electric car, this will be more familiar.

It looks like Vauxhall has taken a bit of inspiration from Mercedes' latest interiors for the Mokka Electric's Pure Panel infotainment system. It's slightly reminiscent of the latest MBUX infotainment system in the A-Class and other models, but Vauxhall’s doesn’t system doesn’t quite stack up against them. 

As opposed to the Volkswagen ID.3 or Volkswagen ID.4, the Mokka Electric still features plenty of physical buttons and switches for you to control the car’s various functions. It might not be as futuristic, but for some it'll be easier to operate than haptic feedback sliders in other electric cars.

Overall, the Mokka Electric’s interior quality is good. There are a few hard plastics around the cabin, but Vauxhall has done well to make sure there are softer, more tactile materials in the places you're most likely to lay your hands. The shiny black trim is the only option available, which looks good to begin with, but is a real fingerprint magnet.

Equipment, options & accessories

The Mokka Electric is available in two trim levels: GS Line and Ultimate. A panoramic rear-view camera, keyless go, dual-screen infotainment with a 10-inch centre and 12-inch driver's display, plus 18-inch wheels, a contrasting black roof, adaptive cruise control and keyless entry are standard on the GS Line. Ultimate takes a more comfort-orientated approach, with smaller 17-inch alloys, heated seats and a heated steering wheel.

Infotainment, apps & sat nav

The entry-level Mokka Electric comes as standard with a pair of seven-inch screens, but higher-spec models are equipped with a 12-inch driver’s display behind the wheel and a larger 10-inch infotainment screen. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are also standard. There’s a bit of lag in the system, but overall it offers good functionality and is on par with those found in other small electric cars you might be looking at.
