After going the green car way with the launch of the electric-powered Corsa not long ago, Opel is making another bold step into this segment with the introduction of the Mokka electric crossover.
The news of this development first broke in April, when the German carmaker admitted electric is the name of the game when it comes to the future incarnation of the model. Since then, we’ve learned a thing or two about what the changes are, but nothing truly important.

If you were hoping to be told exactly what the powertrain on the thing is, how great is the range, or how long it takes to charge it, tough luck. The carmaker, although teasing the model once again, says nothing new.

Opel is in no hurry because the new Mokka is not expected to reach European roads before the start of next year. However,  it is determined to keep people interested in the car, hence this periodic release of info, photos, or videos.

This time we are talking about a short clip that shows the outlines of the Mokka under a tarp. Our first guess, fueled by the misleading title of the text that accompanies the video was we’re going to actually see the car.

That didn’t happen, and all we got to see was the same green camo used on the test models currently roaming the roads of the European continent.

So, what do we know about the new Mokka? First, the platform. The car is based on the new Common Modular Platform (CMP), the one the carmaker’s parent company, PSA, calls EMP1. That means the SUV is lighter than before (by up to 120 kg /264 pounds) and fully capable of accommodating the electric powertrain.

A powertrain we know nothing about so far, but if the Corsa-e is any indication, it should be in line with what the competition has to offer in this segment.

If you were craving to see some more Mokka camouflaged shapes, have a look at the video attached below.
