Eish man. What happened?

Let me guess, someone skipped a red?

Seems to have done its job very well and you aren’t worse for wear?
The missus borrowed the car - there was some confusion as to who had right of way on a road they've been widening for the past few months. No one in the car was injured fortunately - a little abrasion from the side curtain but that's about it.

Just hoping they can fix it up nicely and don't write it off. I'm worried there might be some chassis damage though - the passenger side door is out of alignment.

Oh dear. How many damage (moolah) are we talking?

Lastly are you getting a courtesy car?
In the region of R150k.

No, didn't think to include car hire in my insurance. :eek:

Hectic. That’s the cost of a lovely new outta box AMT-equipped Kwid.

New 2020 Vauxhall Mokka X to gain electric version

Next-generation small SUV will offer petrol engines and an electric powertrain; an electric Vivaro van is on the way, too

The next-generation Vauxhall Mokka X small SUV, due to go into production in 2020, will offer an electric powertrain.

The move is part of the PSA Group’s plans to accelerate the electrification of the Vauxhall and Opel ranges, including a plug-in hybrid or electric version of every model. That includes a battery-electric version of the next Vivaro van, which is also due in 2020.

No further details have been released on the next-generation Mokka X, which will also be offered with petrol engines, but it will be based on the PSA Group’s new common modular platform (CMP) architecture for small cars and compact SUVs. The first car launched using that platform is the DS 3 Crossback, and it will also underpin the next-generation Peugeot 208 and Vauxhall Corsa small hatchbacks.

PSA Group has developed an eCMP variant of the platform to accomodate a full electric powertrain, and is also developing a number of electrified powertrain systems. It has been designed around an EV powertrain that features a 50kWh lithium ion battery and 6.6kw on-board charger that powers a 134bhp electric motor with a top speed of 93mph and a range of between 186 and 218 miles on the WLTP test cycle.

That powertrain will first be seen on the 3 Crossback next year, with future eCMP models, including the Mokka X, following.

The electrification of the Vauxhall range will ramp up next year with the eCorsa, an electric version of the new Corsa, and a plug-in hybrid version of the Grandland X SUV. Both will go on sale in the first half of next year.

Vauxhall Mokka X SUV Review - Will it Mokka you crazy? - OSV

A small, trendy little SUV model can also be a practical choice. If you doubt that, take a drive in Vauxhall's Mokka X.

Vauxhall's Mokka X was the first model to introduce the 'X' segment identifier for Vauxhall SUVs and sits between the Crossland X and the Grandland X in the company's current range.

It's versatile, capable and practical, plus it comes with impressive connectivity, a smart cabin and the option of the kind of 4WD system that's often lacking in this sector.
