At the end of 2012, when it was still fresh off the rollercoaster that was the GM ownership, German carmaker Opel introduced the Mokka, a small crossover meant to conquer an expanding segment. The nameplate is present in a number of countries, and in Europe alone it constantly sells over 120,000 units each year. Its success means a new version is coming.
Set to enter the market in early 2021, the new Mokka has begun testing, and to prove it Opel released this week the first images and a short video showing this second generation, one that will be more modern-looking, connected, and of course at least in part electric.

In fact, the Germans plan to start selling the electric version of the Mokka first, and only later add some internal combustion engined variants.

For now, Opel did not say anything about the electric powertrain of the car. The only other Opel EV available at this time is the Corsa-e, introduced in the summer of 2019. In the case of this small city car, the powertrain comprises a 50 kWh battery that provides a top range of 330 km (205 miles) and an electric motor that develops a maximum output of 136 hp and 260 Nm of torque.

Additionally, Opel says the new Mokka will drop the X appendix that now comes attached to its name, and will also be fitted with a fully digitized interior.

“I have followed the development of the new Mokka very closely for two and a half years and I am very proud of this new Opel, which will be electric from the very beginning! I can promise that the new Mokka will be one of the most exciting cars in our long history!” said in a statement when revealing the first images of the new crossover Opel CEO Michael Lohscheller.

“This second generation shows everything Opel stands for today and in the future, it will change the perception of our brand. Our engineers still have important work to do, but I'm looking forward to presenting the new Mokka soon.”
