Opel misses Corsa-E and Mocha-E more Range-range

Multi-kilometers for the OPEL models Corsa-E and Mokka-E: As the manufacturer announced, some further developments have led to significant range enhancements of both models – not only in the official WLTP cycle (Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure), but also in practice. The Opel Corsa-E, which was introduced in 2019, creates up to 359 kilometers to WLTP with a battery charge, an increase of around seven percent or. 22 kilometers. Previously, the Corsa-E came to 337 kilometers. The range of the Mochka-E, which came 2020 in the trade, has grown from 324 to 338 km (WLTP).

The small car and the crossover are based on the Stellantis Group’s CMP (Common Modular Platform) architecture, which is designed for multiple drive types. Both models are equipped with a 50 kWh battery and a 100 kW electric motor (136 hp).

The increases in range were achieved, among other things, by optimizing the HVAC system (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) and drive systems of the Opel Corsa-e and Opel Mokka-e. The efficiency of the heat pump, which is standard on both models and warms and cools the interior, has been improved. Heat pumps are inherently more efficient than conventional systems because they use less energy from the battery, which benefits the range. Customers should notice the improvements especially when driving in the winter months. Another contribution to the range increase ensure adapted transmission translation as well as 16-inch (Corsa-E) and 17-inch tires (Mochka-E) of Grade A+.

The Opel Corsa-e and Opel Mokka-e are part of the comprehensive electrification offensive of the traditional German automobile manufacturer, which now belongs to the multi-brand group Stellantis. Opel already has nine electrified vehicle lines on the market – LCV (Light Commercial Vehicles, compact commercial vehicles) and passenger cars. By 2024, the brand’s product portfolio should be fully electrified. From 2028, Opel intends to focus entirely on battery electric vehicles in Europe.

  1. However, Opel says nothing about whether this only applies to newly ordered vehicles or whether vehicles that have already been delivered can be retrofitted or converted for more range.
