VAUXHALL has unveiled a special edition low-cost Mokka Electric Griffin as part of its plans to make electric range more accessible.

The new entry-point to the Mokka Electric line-up features an enhanced specification and is £7,115 cheaper over Design trim, with prices starting at £29,495.

Griffin trim enhances the Mokka Electric's design with a contrasting black roof and tinted rear windows alongside 17-inch silver alloy wheels.

The new trim also features the full Mokka exterior colour palette, including metallic finishes, at no extra cost, saving up to £700.

Inside, there's a flat-bottomed leather-effect steering wheel while a panoramic rear-view camera and rear sensors help with parking.

The Mokka Electric Griffin builds on the Design trim, offering many connectivity features as standard.

Vauxhall's Multimedia Pure Panel infotainment system provides a seven-inch colour touchscreen, which is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a seven-inch digital instrument cluster.

Electric models also benefit from Vauxhall Connect, enabling drivers to schedule charging remotely and pre-condition the vehicle's cabin temperature.

The Mokka Electric Griffin includes heated front seats and a heated steering wheel, as well as automatic climate control and keyless start and a retractable boot floor.

Griffin models also feature LED headlights, tail lights and daytime running lights with high beam assist, plus an array of driver-assistance tech which include lane departure warning with lane keep assist, traffic sign recognition, driver drowsiness alert, cruise control and automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection.

The Mokka Electric Griffin is powered by a 50kWh lithium-ion battery providing a range of up to 209 miles paired with an electric motor producing 136ps.

Vauxhall says recharging to 80 per cent capacity takes 30 minutes on a 100kW rapid DC charger or a full charge will take seven hours and 30 minutes from a domestic 7kW wallbox.

Thanks to Vauxhall's new partnership with supermarket chain Tesco, new Vauxhall electric vehicle customers also benefit from one year's free charging credit at stores across the country.

In addition, through its Electric Streets of Britain campaign, Vauxhall has partnered with leading charging point operators, Connected Kerb and SureCharge to support local councils across the country to accelerate the installation of on-street residential charging.

As part of Vauxhall's efforts to simplify going electric, the Mokka Electric Griffin is available with the brand's Plug and Go offer, which includes a battery warranty for eight years/100,000 miles and three years of roadside assistance as standard for added peace of mind.

All new Vauxhall electrified vehicle customers also receive an Octopus Electroverse card, which gives access to over 500,000 public chargers from different networks across the UK and Europe via a single account.

First deliveries of the Mokka Electric Griffin are due from June and the new model follows the Corsa Electric Yes edition, priced from £26,895.
