VAUXHALL has released the first details of its new Mokka SUV which will be going on sale early next year.
Although sketchy, the company has confirmed the new model will be available as battery-powered electric model from launch as well as being offered with conventional powertrains.
The car is also being renamed and will revert to the Mokka moniker - dropping the X suffix which denoted all-wheel-drive from its name.
Computer generated Images of a heavily camouflaged model show the new SUV has short front and rear overhangs.
The new model has its roots in the latest Peugeot 2008 which is coming on stream now. Both models are produced by the companies' French parent group PSA and Vauxhall says that the cabin of the new Mokka is fully digistised.
Production will start in the fourth quarter of this year, with first cars - including the electric model - due to arrive with customers in early 2021.
The large yellow K seen on the test car apparently denotes the name change, says Vauxhall.
"The new Vauxhall Mokka will change people's perception of our brand,"' said Stephen Norman, Vauxhall's managing director.
"Not only does it show that we're serious about electrification, but also that we're not afraid to innovate with design, both inside and out of the car. The Mokka is still in its development phase now, but it is set to be one of Vauxhall's most important models when it arrives with customers at the start of next year."
Further details are still to be announced but the current model - which has been around since 2016 - is priced from Â£19,780.
The car was first introduced in 2012 as a compact crossover and was facelifted and renamed the Mokka X in 2016.
