Test – Opel Mokka -e (2023): for a few more kilometers

Like the E-208, E-2008 or Corsa-e, Mokka-E has adopted some optimizations of its electric motorization. Result, a range of autonomy of 17 km. Always good to take. Here is his test in GS finish.

Test - Opel Mokka -e (2023): for a few more kilometers

writing

IN SHORT

Optimized version of Mokka-E

Autonomy increased at 339 km against 322

From € 42,000 excluding bonuses

Our first test of the Mokka-e dates from February 2021. But since that date, and a little on the sly, Opel has optimized its small urban SUV, like Peugeot with its E-208 (which we tried) or its E-2008. No wonder, since all these little people share the same E-CMP platform in Stellantis.

And the same causes producing the same effects, Mokka-e, like its cousins, therefore displays with these optimizations an improved autonomy. Concretely, it goes from 322 km for the launch version, 339 km. And unlike Peugeot models, it does not seem surprisingly to be done at the expense of performance.

Indeed, the optimized Mokka-E still announces 150 km/h at top speed, and a 0 to 100 km/h in 9.1 seconds, such as the launch version.

Technical optimizations

But how does it go from 322 to 339 km between 2 refills, keeping the same 100 kW electric motor, 136 hp, and the same 50 kWh battery of raw capacity (46 kWh useful) ? Because we are not talking here about the version which will adopt the new 115 kW engine (156 hp) and the largest battery of 54 kWh (51 useful), and whose autonomy will exceed 400 km ! It will not arrive until the end of the year, despite an announcement in December 2022, other models in the group being priority (E-308, DS 3).

Newsletter

Thanks to technical optimizations, the Mokka-E increases its autonomy by 17 km, from 322 to 339 km maximum

The explanation is that like the E-208, E-2008 and Corsa-e, the electric Mokka benefits from what could be described as “fine settings” and other margin optimizations:

  • Optimized electronic management
  • Final multiplication report of the modified reducer (elongated)
  • Revised hygrometry sensor to optimize the performance of the heat pump for air conditioning
  • 0 % battery display threshold revised downwards
  • Tires with very low rolling resistance (Continental Ecocontact 6Q on our test model)

So let’s go in the first place on the result of these optimizations, since this is the purpose of this essay, nothing having changed elsewhere.

Let us specify from the outset that it was very complicated to compare compared to our first test of the electric Mokka, carried out by negative temperatures and under difficult conditions. At the time, my colleague Pierre Desjardins, however known to be a pen sole, had a projected autonomy of 200 km, some 23 kWh of average consumption, which is obviously not very credible during a conventional driving. He then considered it to be able to achieve between 260 and 300 km in “normal” conditions.

A consumption say “correct”

Regarding me, and under much milder conditions, temperatures around 20 degrees, and traffic conditions quite average (precision made that good half of the kilometers have been traveled on the limited urban motorway At 110 km/h, which inevitably increases the consumption), the latter was established at an excellent 15.8 kWh/100 km, the possibility of traveling a little more than 290 km. And you know what, it is exactly the average consumption value announced for the WLTP cycle (which however takes into account recharging losses. )).

After more than 250 km traveled on all types of routes, average consumption S

In purely urban areas, it is possible to stay quite easily under the 13 kWh, and even less in the event of eco-driving, and by activating the eco driving mode (I held less than 10 kWh over a few kilometers, but it’s extreme. ), or more than 350 km of autonomy.

No highway at 130 km/h on the routes taken, but at 110 stabilized, we were around 19 kWh.

These values, without being exceptional, are however very acceptable. During the optimized, lighter and aerodynamic Peugeot E-208 test, Olivier Pagès had obtained 14 kWh on average. And a Hyundai Kona Electric does better, but barely (14.3 kWh on average WLTP).

We can select driving modes on the central console. They correspond to different available powers

The Mokka-E still offers 3 driving modes, selectable via a button on the central console. Eco mode offers 60 kW (81 hp) and 180 Nm. It is very well suited to 100 % urban driving, but lack of nerve elsewhere. The normal mode, which is quite sufficient in all circumstances, offers 80 kW (109 hp) and 220 nm. Sport mode alone allows you to have the entire available cavalry, 100 kW (136 hp) and 260 Nm. With this mode, the Mokka becomes really lively, after a takeoff, however a little soft. And after the 100 km/h, it also calms down a little, but the covers remain consistent.

A little slow recharging.

Regarding recharging, the Urban SUV of Opel still offers a 7.4 kW on -board charger, which allows you to recover 100 % battery in just under 7 hours. Optionally, an on -board charger 11 kW, allows you to go down at 5 a.m. to find 100 % from 0. It costs 400 €. Finally, the fast charge always caps, unsurprisingly, at 100 kW as before, 30 minutes to go from 0 to 80 % depending on the official figures. This figure is now a little weak, compared to everything that comes out today, and which often rises to more than 150 kW.

Concretely, during our test, on a 120 kW fast terminal, we went from 11 to 54 % in 20 minutes, which is equivalent to an average power of approximately 60 kW approximately.

Rapid recharging, here on a 120 kW terminal, S

All these technical considerations now mentioned, the Mokka-e remains faithful to itself.

It is, from his 4.15 m, a “small” urban SUV. Its look, very close to that of the 2018 GT X Experimental concept, shows a certain originality, and it stands out quite clearly in traffic. Its so-called “vizor” grille, inspired by that of Manta A from 1970, which includes optics and grille itself within a chrome (or black) rush, is now taken up by other models of the brand as a strong distinctive sign. The optional black contrast roof, the possibility of opting for an optional black hood also (€ 300), the different models of rims, allow a certain degree of personalization, welcome.

The grille The rear side is made up of very fine lights, and

Our test version in GS finish, with the more “sport” presentation has 17 -inch black rims, and a rush of separation between bodywork and red color. It suits him well you have to admit it.

With this body color in GS finish, the rush between bodywork and contrasting pavilion is red. Quite pretty

A modern and refined interior

In the cabin, we discover a sober dashboard in the drawing, and which adopts the so -called “pure panel” instrumentation. A set of 12 -inch digital instrumentation combination and 10 inch multimedia screen, set in a lacquered black panel that seems cut in a single block when the screens are turned off.

Few additional pimples, many functions go through the screen, but Opel does not make the mistake of making physical air conditioning controls disappear. THANKS. On the other hand, the multimedia system is now very dated. It works well but does not support the comparison in the face of the latest competition products.

The cabin, quite dark in finish of

And the GS finish allows you to select a dashboard with colorful inserts in red, which enormously brightens a very dark dashboard. The seats are in tune, with a fabric/nipal leather tap upholstery, and red inserts also.

Ransom of its small size, the Mokka, is very average in habitability. The rear passengers suffer from a very average knee space, but sufficient in the absolute. And the rear doors are really very small, making accessibility bad. But it is above all the volume of trunk which appears to be very limited, with 310 liters for this electric version, against 350 liters for thermal versions. A Peugeot E-2008, 15 cm longer, offers 405 liters, the new Kona, which has also grown up, 466 liters. The old electric kona, still being marketed offers 332 liters.

L The 310 -liter trunk volume is really limited to go on a family vacation. And you have to fit the charging cables

Dynamic behavior

On the behavior side, the mokka-e show a good dose of dynamism, equaling its cousin the e-2008. It is quite firm suspension on small inequalities, but a little flexible in fast driving, and with a firmer but bouncing rear axle than the front axle.

On the road, the Mokka-e shows

The performance, as long as we keep the sport mode, are quite sufficient as we have seen, even the normal mode allows you to drive without worry in the flow of traffic. Energy regeneration for deceleration and braking cannot be adjusted, but it is different depending on driving modes (strong in sport mode, normal in comfort mode, and low in eco mode). A “B” mode allows you to strengthen this recovery, but the key to activate it is tiny and you have to leave your eyes to find it. Not top. It does not allow “one pedal” driving either.

The direction is correct in sensation and precision. On the other hand, the feeling to the brake pedal is a real horror. Yes, the word is not too strong.

L

Depending on whether one is in regenerative braking or “physical” braking, the hardness of the pedal changes on its own under the foot, and suddenly we break down without wanting to say the stronger pedal, which varies the intensity of the braking far too random. And it is very complicated to get used to it, it is so different at each braking and according to its initial intensity. In short, there is a lot to improve. This is the black point concerning the approval of this model, which is also quite pleasant to drive. Relaxing, and moreover very silent thanks to good filtration of rolling and air noise.

Complete equipment

Digital screens, navigation, numerous driving aids, auto air conditioning, 180 ° reversing camera, etc. L

The equipment, on the other hand, is quite complete opposite the price, even if it has undergone terrible inflation since the launch (a GS Line finish was at the time billed € 39,150). Our GS finish, now billed at € 42,850 before bonus, has essential and more: monozone automatic air conditioning, keyless start, 7 inch digital instrumentation and 7 inch multimedia screen, DAB radio, Android Auto and Apple Car Play wire, navigation , LED headlights, LED rear lights, 180 ° reversing camera, front and rear parking assistance, panel recognition, cruise control/speed limiter, help in the track, 17 inch rims, contrasting black roof, Sellerie Mixed fabric/PET, etc.

An Elegance finish saves € 850 but loses the more sporty presentation and the contrasting roof, while a high ultimate version, billed € 46,300, adds pure panel instrumentation, which was an option at € 1,400 on our Test model (we recommend taking it), the Alcantara/Tep upholstery, the key input, the Matrix LED lights or the double trunk floor and the 18 -inch rims.

In the end, the prices are more interesting than those of the Peugeot E-2008 cousins ​​and of course DS 3 (but we do not really compare it to it which is premium), which are respectively around € 2,000 and € 3,000 more expensive (equivalent equipment of course). But the DS 3 benefits from the new Stellantis mechanical set (larger 54 kWh battery, more powerful 156 hp engine, and better autonomy of more than 400 km). It is therefore ultimately to be considered too, but it’s another story.
