Opel did not expect such a response to the Mokka-e and so far does not offer new production batches. Although he was successful with a positive attitude, he also felt uncomfortable as he was unable to meet the public interest.
German carmaker Opel unveiled its electric vehicle Opel Mokka-e on September 22, and now, just ten weeks before sale, its base model and ‘Edition’ are already sold out for 2021. Huge demand has surprised. completely “to its manufacturers and is produced long before the first units are delivered, scheduled for March next year.
“Demand in Germany clearly exceeds our expectations. Some variants of the Mokka-e are already sold out for the current year until September 2021, an Opel spokesman told Edison this week.
Most of the sales come from Germany and may be due to attractive vehicle prices. One-third of the purchase cost is subsidized by the government in collaboration with Opel, reducing the initial cost from 32,990 euros (approximately $ 40,000) to 23,420 euros ($ 28,000). However, the demand was also unexpected and significant in other European markets.
Opel did not expect such a strong reaction to its electric car and production plant no longer offers these vehicles. While he was generally successful with positivism, he was also inconvenient for the German manufacturer as he was unable to meet the public interest. Meanwhile, new electric models will be available next year, including hybrids with gasoline and diesel variants.
The Mokka-e is a 100% electric SUV and is equipped with a lithium battery with a capacity of 50 kilowatt hours (kWh) to provide it range of more than 300 kilometers on a single charge (reaches 80% of its battery in 30 minutes).
