The Stellantis Group is continuing to make some improvements to its electric cars based on the platform of the former PSA Group. After the DS 3 Crossback E-Tense and the Peugeot e-208 and e-2008, now it is; the turn of the battery-powered cars of the Opel brand.

MORE EFFICIENCY

The news techniques are substantially the same already; communicated for the other electric models of the Group. To obtain greater autonomy yes & egrave; worked on efficiency .

Furthermore, & egrave; was introduced a new heat pump more & ugrave; efficient . Heat pump that & egrave; standard on both cars.

Other improvements that have made it possible to increase the maximum mileage are the new gear ratio and the 16-inch (Opel Corsa-e) and 17-inch (Opel Mokka-e) A + class tires. Thanks to this work, the Corsa-e has a range that rises to 359 km (previously 337 km). As for the Mokka-e (here our test), the distance reaches up to 338 km (formerly 322 km). The manufacturer points out, however, that the greatest advantages will be noticed especially in winter, thanks to the greater efficiency of the heat pump.

Both cars have the same powertrain. We have a single electric motor capable of delivering 100 kW (136 hp). The battery has a capacity; of 50 kWh and can & ograve; be recharged in direct current up to a power of 100 kW.

Opel Corsa-e and Opel Mokka-e are part of the manufacturer's wide range of electrified models. The product range of the brand will be; fully electrified by 2024. From 2028, Opel will concentrate in Europe; exclusively on battery electric models.
