Vauxhall Mokka Car leasing
For a nation obsessed by SUVs it made complete sense for Vauxhall, under the watchful eye of Stellantis, to build on the success and interest in their Corsa-e hatchback with the introduction of a more Crossover style of car. And with most successful EVs being SUVs / 4x4s it does compel most manufacturers to have at least one or two options available in this format, as they would do in their combustion engine equivalents.
So, is there a good choice of affordable SUVs to lease? Between the Citroen C4, the DS3 Crossback, Hyundai Kona Electric, Peugeot e-2008 and the Vauxhall Mokka-e, the e-car lease personal and business customers are spoiled for choice. The statement – “there just isn’t enough choice with electric vehicles” – just doesn’t make sense anymore
What can we expect from the Mokka-e? One of the key noticeable differences is the significant change in appearance and aesthetics from the previous model, which was seen as a cheap and basic leasing option. The new Mokka electric has clearly been influenced by the Stellantis connection with sharper tones, higher specification and a far better driver experience. But what Mokka EV specs are there? The list as at 2022 includes:
• SE Premium – 7” touchscreen with sat nav, 16” alloys, climate control, rear view camera with parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, LED headlights and lane departure warning;
• Sri Premium – this sporty option includes 10” touch screen with sat nav, 18” alloys, 12” instrument panel, front and rear parking sensors, heated front seats and steering wheel and black roof/headliner;
• Elite Premium – this comfort option is similar to the Sri, with the exception of 17” alloy wheels and keyless entry and start; and
• Ultimate – the top of the line Mokka adds full leather, driver’s seat massage function, LED matrix headlights, dark tinted windows, advance park and assist and alloy-effect sports pedals.
With some enviable specification, it’s clear that the Mokka EV has the comforts and luxury which UK drivers demand. But does the zero emission Mokka have sufficient battery technology and will it meet the needs of our e-car lease customers? The 50 kWh lithium-ion battery delivers between 110 – 160 miles of range in winter temperatures (on a full charge) and between 140 – 240 miles in warmer weather.
The overall combined real-world range sits at 160 miles (in comparison to the 209 miles quotes by WLTP). With this range, we would suggest that the Mokka-e is an ideal stop/start journey vehicle for low mileage customers (ideally covering 10,000 mile or less per annum). This car is not the most appropriate high-mileage company car to select. But how many customers actually travel more than 10,000 miles per year anyway?
But aren’t electric cars like the Mokka-e slow? The rhetoric that EVs are somehow boring or unworkable is a bizarre one. Moving away from the rapidly increasing costs of petrol / diesel, running an electric car is anything other than dreary. The Mokka electric will deliver 100 kW (or 134hp) of power which means around 9.2 second 0 – 62mph times and top speeds of 93 mph. And charging this SUV shouldn’t take too long with the 11 kW AC maximum paving way for 5 hour 0 – 100% times and 25-minute rapid charge times from 10 – 80% from a 101 kW DC maximum. For most customers charging their Mokka at home, expect a full charge to take around 7 hours.
But where do I charge my Mokka on the public network? A concern for many personal, business and salary sacrifice leasing customers is that operating an EV will be difficult. In particular, where will they charge their new car when in the public domain? Using Zap Map, drivers can easily source a charge point which is local to them or use this as part of their journey planning. What is always crucial is that EV customers need to differentiate AC and DC charging.
While the onboard charger can allow for 11 kW charging speeds, this is more of a home or workplace solution, where a charging session can be 5 – 8 hours long. When charging at a motorway service station, or similar, you need to look for a DC or rapid charge solution. And remember to identify two key facets – 1) the maximum charge rate of your vehicle i.e. 101 kW; and 2) the maximum speed of the charge point – which could be anywhere between 50 – 250 kW. There is no “one speed” for cars / charge points.
