Opel confirms a comeback of the VXR badge by 2022: first on the Mokka crossover, and later on the Corsa-e hatchback.
According to Auto Express, the Opel / Vauxhall Mokka VXR will be unveiled in early 2022, and it will powered by an electric motor.
In the near future, the Vivaro van will also receive the VXR treatment and all-electric powertrain.
The Opel Mokka VXR won’t get more power than the standard model. Nevertheless, it’ll have higher level of performance thanks to improved suspension and steering, including electronic settings, as well as certain drive modes making the vehicle more capable.
Performance figures for the next Mokka-e, that rides on Groupe PSA’s CMP platform, will be likely identical to those of the Peugeot e-2008.
Under the bonnet, expect to find a 134-bhp (100-kW) electric motor, a 50-kWh battery providing a range of 200 miles (322 km).
The appearance of the new Mokka VXR should be evolutionary, meaning bigger alloy wheels, a new tailgate spoiler, larger air intakes, sportier front splitter, short overhangs.
As for the interior, expect to see ‘VXR’ graphics / emblem, red trim, a sport steering wheel, sports bucket seats, a new Pure Panel.
