If you have a growing family, spend most of your time driving to and from the office and doing a few errands at the weekend, the Mokka-e just might be the EV for you. It even appears on our list of the best family electric cars.

Try the Vauxhall Mokka-e on an elmo subscription
If you’re keen on driving an EV and taking advantage of the many money-saving and eco-friendly benefits that come with it, the Mokka-e subscription is a great way for you to dip your toe into the world of driving electric.
The cost to buy a Vauxhall Mokka-e starts from £20,735, however, here at elmo we offer electric car subscriptions, meaning driving your very own EV is more affordable than ever. Our all-inclusive monthly cost starts from as low as £509.
With an EV subscription, there are no hefty upfront costs, lengthy lease contracts or pricey break clauses. A subscription involves a single monthly payment that includes everything you need to drive your very own Mokka-e, including:
- A fully flexible contract after the first 60 days (on elmoFlex)
- Your Mokka e delivered straight to your door
- Fully comprehensive insurance
- Maintenance and servicing
- Breakdown cover
With no hidden or unexpected costs and no need for expensive multi-year contracts, we’re making it easier for more drivers to switch to electric.

Mokka-e Range and Charging Info
While Vauxhall says the Mokka-e is capable of a 209-mile range, its real-world range is much closer to 160 miles – not quite as high but still decent considering it’s a more affordable EV. That means the Mokka-e might not be quite right for you if you spend a lot of time commuting up and down the motorway, as you may find the semi-frequent need to charge frustrating, especially if you don’t have a charge point installed at home.
That’s why the Mokka-e makes for a far better family or city car, as average use should mean you’ll only have to charge it every few days. Because of the moderate range, you’ll find charging more convenient if you have a charge point installed at home. That being said, when the time does come to charge your Mokka-e, it offers Type 2 and CCS charging, which means rapid charging is available. In just 30 minutes you can charge the battery from 10% to 80%. That’s less than the amount of time it’ll take to do the weekly shop.
The interior of the Mokka-e offers plenty of the high-tech functionality you expect with an EV, despite the affordability. It’s fairly no-nonsense, with all of the must-have features but fewer of the nice-to-haves (although it does have a heated steering wheel, which is actually pretty nice-to-have).
The SUV design means there’s plenty of room for you, your family, the dog AND a couple of bags in the boot. It’ll also keep everyone entertained with an infotainment centre with a 10-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. There’s also a range of safety features including collision alerts, sensors, cruise control and lane departure warning, helping you to get to where you’re going safely.
With a striking SUV design, the Mokka-e certainly stands out, in part thanks to its bold range of colours, with black roof and black-painted rear spoiler. It also has plenty of external features including advanced forward lighting, automatic headlamp levelling system, automatic high beam assist, electrically folding food mirrors and rain-sensitive windscreen wipers.
Mokka-e Key Features
The Vauxhall Mokka-e may be a more affordable electric SUV, but it still has plenty of great features that mean you’re driving a tech-laden and stylish electric car.
For a little extra luxury, the front seats offer heating and massage (depending on your trim) – great for warming up those muscles at the end of a long day.
To help make the driving experience simple and more enjoyable, there are front and rear parking sensors and a panoramic rearview camera, making getting around the city a doddle.
And with a plethora of safety features, including side blind spot alerts, automatic emergency city braking and lane departure warning with lane keep assist, you can drive with confidence.
Lease vs Subscription
The Vauxhall Mokka-e is one of the most affordable electric SUVs available, and both a lease and a subscription are great options for getting behind the wheel of your own. However, there are a few differences that mean one might suit you a little better than the other.

Is the Vauxhall Mokka-e right for you?
If you spend a lot of time commuting then the Vauxhall Mokka-e isn’t necessarily the right choice for you. But there are other EVs out there that provide a much greater range, albeit for a little more money. But, the Mokka-e is a great shout if you’re a growing family that doesn’t regularly stray too far from home. That being said, don’t expect to fit too many growing teens in the back, as the leg room can be quite tight, especially if passengers are pushing six feet.
Overall, it’s quite possibly one of the most exciting small EV SUVs on the market, and well worth your consideration when making the switch to electric.
