What Car? says...
The Vauxhall Mokka-e reminds us that, with electric vehicles (EVs) becoming increasingly popular, we'll one day drop the word 'electric' from conversations about them altogether – and simply call them 'cars'.
If Vauxhall has anything to do with it, that moment could come sooner than we all think. Instead of going down the route of designing a bespoke electric SUV (like Skoda and Volkswagen did with the Enyaq iV and ID.4), it is effectively offering electric power as just another engine option for the Mokka small SUV.
The e-2008 is just one car in an increasingly competitive class, though. To truly succeed, the Mokka-e will also have to see off well-established rivals that include the Hyundai Kona Electric, Kia e-Niro and VW ID.3, plus electric cars that cost less, such as the great-value MG ZS EV and the Mazda MX-30.
Over the next few pages of this review, we'll let you know how the Vauxhall Mokka-e small SUV squares up against those rivals while telling you what it's like to drive, whether the interior is comfortable, how much it will cost to run and more.
