The slow unveiling of Opel’s second electric vehicle overall and its first electric SUV, the new Mokka, continues this week with the carmaker showing a sketch of the car’s front end for the first time.
Back in 2018, the carmaker unveiled an exciting design concept called the GT X Experimental. There were many cool things about it (and you can read all about them here) but one of the most exciting was the new front end, called the Opel Vizor.

Created as a closed front end and lacking any grille to cool the engine, the new front end concept was announced ever since back then as a possible solution for the brand’s future lineup of electric vehicles. The already presented Corsa-e didn’t get the Opel Vizor, but the new Mokka will.

Opel said this week the new interpretation of the crossover is the first production car in its lineup to use the Vizor at the front. Used this way, the idea presents itself as a one-piece part, with integrated headlights and the carmaker’s emblem. It’s also narrow enough to probably give the model a very aggressive look.

“It was very important for us to create a fresh new face for the brand that was true to our future design philosophy of being both bold and pure,” said in a statement Opel Design Vice President, Mark Adams.

“There is no need for a classic grille in electric cars like the Mokka, so the Vizor creates a seamless integration of future lighting and other technologies, all within a high-tech protective surface.”

The new Opel Mokka is scheduled to enter the market at the beginning of next year, so we’ll probably get to see it before the end of this one. No official details were given yet on what the powertrain and capabilities of the SUV will be.
