over the last 12 months give or take we've brought you reviews of three new electric crossovers that if you discount the badge on the nose are pretty much identical under the skin the former psa group which is now called stalantis includes brands like peugeot citroen and ds as well as voxel and now fiat and alfa romeo too so we've driven the peugeot e2008 the citroen ec4 and the ds3 crossback e-tents and this is the latest model to get that new tech this is the reimagined vauxhall mocha e

[Music] they all share the same 50 kilowatt-hour battery the same electric motor and give or take we'll all do 200 miles on a charge but if they're all so similar why should you pick one of these over one of those let's go and find out but before we do make sure you subscribe to the driving electric youtube channel and hit the bell icon so you never miss a video credit where it's due voxel has done a good job of turning these familiar underpinnings into something that looks nothing if not distinctive it uses the brand's new visor front end
01:10
with a sharp set of daytime running lights and if you're brave enough a fairly individual color palette the old mocha sold over 200 000 units in the uk and over a million in europe so it's a big car for vauxhall like its cousins there are petrol and diesel versions but that's not important here so we'll be focusing on a single electric option as you mentioned every model comes with a 50 kilowatt-hour battery 134 brake horsepower electric motor and an official range of 201 miles we'll come on to charging and charging speeds a little later in this video
01:40
now we had a quick poke around the new market e last summer in a pre-production car but here we get to have a good prod and poke and see what we like and don't like about this new cars cabin the good news is it's actually pretty nice in here the front end treatment has been recreated up here with this thing that they call a pure panel okay so it's not as slick in here as the setup you'll find in a mercedes a-class plug-in hybrid but it's pretty good and pleasingly the controls for the climate control are down here rather than hidden away in the screen submenus
02:12
the mockery is offered in four trim levels with entry level se nav premium cars getting 16 inch alloys led headlights a panoramic rear view camera and automatic emergency braking as standard sri nav premium brings a sportier look with black exterior detailing and 18-inch alloy wheels elite nav premium cars get even more standard kits with highlights including adaptive cruise control heated seats and 17-inch alloys while top spec launch edition cars like this come as standard with leather upholstery
02:42
and advanced parking assistance all cars come with satnav plus apple carplay and android auto but you'll need to step up to at least the sri to get this 10 inch screen in the middle and the 12 inch screen behind the steering wheel the screen itself is perhaps a little bit slow but there's plenty of functionality and elsewhere quality is really very good it's easily a match for other small suvs in this segment do you know what i think if you put a premium badge on the steering wheel many people will be none the wiser to this being a vauxhall when it comes to practicality
03:12
the mocker e perfectly fulfills its brief as a more versatile version of the corsa super mini it'll be infinitely more appealing to small families thanks to the boot that measures up to 350 liters okay it's smaller than the petrol mockers but it's bigger than the corsa's 267 litre low bay the sleek exterior profile does rob the market of some outright carrying plastic though pleasingly there is some storage under the floor for the charge cables space in the back is a bit of a mixed bag i'm six foot and while i've got plenty of headroom knee room isn't all that generous the
03:44
middle seat is even tighter but there are a couple of usb slots to keep the kids entertained now while the old mocha sold well despite its lackluster driving experience this new one needs the dynamics to match its stylish appearance now you can think of its siblings having their own distinct personality so the citroen is the comfortable one the peugeot the practical one and the ds well that's the luxury take on the formula yeah this new mocker it manages to blend all three without actually really standing out it's not
04:19
super soft and yet it's not that sporty either it's perhaps not as fast as you might imagine either but that's not necessarily a bad thing it feels as if this new mocker has been tuned to ease people's transition between petrol and electric it just feels really normal to drive it's pretty quiet and it's pretty refined apart from a little wind whistle around the a-pillars at motorway speeds and do you know what it rides well enough for a car of this type as we mentioned earlier the moka e gets the same charging capability
04:53
as its peugeot and citroen siblings including those cost 100 kilowatt maximum find one of these rapid charges and voxel says it'll accept the charge to 80 full in 30 minutes it also has a relatively powerful 11 kilowatt onboard ac charger allowing for a five hour refill at home however most people will use a seven kilowatt wall box which will top up the car overnight in around seven hours the mocker e only comes with a mode three cable for wool box charging though you'll pay extra for a three pin plug handily voxel says
05:24
it's working on a range calculator for its website allowing potential customers to factor in things like weather temperature and other charging variables we saw 188 miles from a full charge and voxel claims a standard fit heat pump should help a mocker maintain a decent usable range whatever the conditions 150 miles should be achievable even in winter the old vauxhall mocker was really more successful than it had any right to be but this new one is so much better especially with this car's all-electric powertrain it may not have a single usp but
05:57
it's pretty well packaged and it's good enough to drive i reckon we can wager on seeing plenty of these on uk roads before too long head to drivingelectric.com for all the latest electric and hybrid car advice news and reviews and check us out on twitter facebook and instagram finally while you're here make sure you hit the subscribe button on our youtube channel and turn on notifications to ensure you never miss a video
