Opel is slowly moving all of its models to PSA platforms after the Germans joined the French manufacturer about three years ago. The next in line for the major change is the Mokka X, which has been spotted for the first time already wearing its production body.
Shot during cold winter tests in Sweden, the new compact crossover wears full camouflage but it is obvious that the shape of the model will change compared to the outgoing Mokka X, which was refreshed in 2016. Under the new skin, the vehicle will share its EMP1 architecture with the latest Opel Corsa, Peugeot 208 and the new DS3 Crossback.
In May 2018, our artists imagined the design of the new Mokka X (see pictures below) and, judging by today’s spy photos, their renderings were fairly accurate. Of course, at this point we cannot say the exact shape and design of the headlights and taillights, but our virtual designs provide a very good overview of what to expect.

Thanks to the new foundations, the crossover will gain electrified powertrains and the latest gossip indicates that there will also be a fully electric version. It’s probably safe to assume that it will be sharing its zero emission power system with the DS3 Crossback E-Tense, which means that a 134 horsepower (100 kilowatt) electric motor will power the front wheels, while a battery of 50 kWh will provide a range of up to 186 miles (300 km) between charges.
The word on the street is that the new Mokka X will launch late this year as a 2021 model. Some sources say the crossover could remove the X from its name and revert to the original Mokka, which was used by Opel for the pre-equipped version (2012-2016) of the model.
