Vauxhall Mokka-e range, battery & charging

With a maximum range of just under 210 miles, the Mokka-e is ideal for those with a short commute, while 100kW charging means it can handle longer journeys, too

Although it might be a hindrance on longer journeys or for completing lots of business miles, the Mokka-e’s 209-mile range is ideal for short commutes and driving around town. Plus, it’s certainly more usable than the closer-to-100-mile range you can expect from the Honda e or MINI Electric.

Vauxhall Mokka-e range

On a full charge, the Mokka-e has a maximum charge of 209 miles. That figure applies to cars delivered from December 2021 on, when technical updates were made to boost the original figure of 201 miles. However, as Vauxhall’s calculator on its site will show you, that range can be reduced to less than 130 miles in certain conditions and after long periods at high motorway speeds.

Charge time

If you’re able to find a public rapid charger capable of at least 100kW, you can top up the Mokka-e from 10% to 80% battery capacity in 30 minutes. Our experience is you’re more likely to find a 50kW rapid charger in the UK, but one of those can still add 100 miles of range to the car in around 20 minutes.

Most owners are likely to do the bulk of their charging using a wallbox at home. Vauxhall claims it'll take you five hours to charge the Mokka-e from 0% to full using an 11kW charger, but this speed is only achievable with three-phase electrics – something most UK homes don't have. We expect it'll take roughly seven or eight hours at 7.4kW, which is the maximum speed of most home wallboxes on single-phase electrics.
