The Mokka will land in October as the first Opel model ever offered locally.

Opel has priced the new small SUV Mokka, which will debut in New Zealand in three forms, including an all-electric version.

The Mokka will be Opel’s first model to be available here, chosen because it “appears to be cut off from the future in terms of styling and feels like it is with its driving experience”, according to the director local salesperson, Noah Robertson.

It will charge $38,990 (more on the road) for the base edition, which uses a 1.2-liter turbocharged triple offering 96kW/230Nm and an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The engine is Euro6 homologated, and while final emissions are yet to be confirmed, Opel says it qualifies for a $1,923 clean car rebate.

The Mokkas Edition comes standard with LED headlights with automatic high beams, autonomous braking, blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning and front/rear parking sensors with reversing camera. Inside is a seven-inch infotainment screen paired with another seven-inch digital instrument cluster, along with a heated steering wheel and heated front seats.

SRi models get the new digital instrument panel

SRi models receive the new “Pure Panel” digital instrument panel.

Next is the $44,990 SRi model, which gets the same engine (and discount), adding Matrix LED headlights to the scrum with a black roof and hood, 18-inch wheels (instead of 17), adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, a 10-inch central touchscreen with satellite navigation and a 12-inch digital instrument cluster.

Opel calls the two displays the Pure Panel, curved around the driver with the analog climate controls also angled towards the driver.

Finally, the electric Mokka-e SRi completes the range with a single 100 kW/260 Nm electric motor, combined with a “new generation battery” offering up to 363 km of range between charges.

The Mokka will also land as a fully electric model, based on the Peugeot e-2008.

The Mokka will also land as a fully electric model, based on the Peugeot e-2008.

Opel isn’t detailing the powertrain yet, but given the relationship between it and Peugeot, we can assume it’s similar if not identical to the e-2008. That means a 50kWh battery supporting charge rates up to 100kW on a DC fast charger.

The EV gets all the same specs as the gasoline SRi and starts at $69,990 before the full clean car discount of $8,625. For comparison, the Peugeot e-2008 starts at $73,990 before the discount, but has a higher claimed range at 372 km.

Those interested in a Mokka can reserve one now for $100, with arrivals slated for early October. Other confirmed upcoming Opel models include the Corsa and Corsa-e supermini, the new Astra and Astra hybrids and the Grandland/Grandland Hybrid. These are priceless yet.
