Opel did not expect such a response to the Mokka-e and is not offering new production batches for the time being. Although he has succeeded with positivity, he has also found it uncomfortable to fail to meet the public interest.
German automaker Opel introduced its Opel Mokka-e electric vehicle on September 22nd and now, just ten weeks into its pre-sale, its base model and the ‘Edition’ version have already been sold for 2021. Huge demand has “completely” shocked its manufacturers and is being generated long before the first units are delivered, scheduled for next March.
“Demand in Germany clearly exceeding our expectations. Some variants of the Mokka-e have already been sold for the current year until September 2021, “a spokesperson for Opel assured this week for Edison magazine.
Most sales come from Germany and could be due to the attractive prices of the vehicle. One third of your purchase cost is subsidized by the government in conjunction with Opel, reducing the initial cost from € 32,990 (approximately $ 40,000) to 23.420 euros ($ 28,000). However, demand has also been unexpected and significant in other European markets.
Opel did not expect such a high response to its electric car and production plant it no longer offers these vehicles. While he has generally taken the success with positivity, he has also been uncomfortable for the German manufacturer by the fact that he was unable to deliver the public interest. Meanwhile, it says it will have new electric models available next year, including hybrids with gasoline and diesel variants.
The Mokka-e is a 100% electric SUV and has a 50 kilowatt-hour (kWh) lithium battery that gives it range of more than 300 kilometers on a single charge (reaches 80% of its battery in 30 minutes). It has a 100 kW engine, that is, the equivalent of 136 horsepower. It will accelerate from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour (km / h) in 9 seconds and can reach a top speed of 150 km / hr.
