Popular crossover is removed from price lists after production ended in June; replacement will have EV option
28 November 2019

Vauxhall has confirmed it is no longer taking orders for the Mokka X, after seven years on sale and more than 200,000 examples shifted in the UK alone. 

Although the Nissan Juke rival is still seemingly available to configure on the brand’s website, production actually ended in June. A Vauxhall spokesperson claims that the only orders taken will be for existing dealer stock, which is now running low. 

A statement confirmed that an all-new Mokka X, to be 'fully electrified', will go on sale in 2020. However, Autocar understands that examples won’t actually arrive for UK customers until the start of 2021. The new compact SUV is expected to be shown in petrol, diesel and electric form at the same time, likely at the Geneva motor show in March, but sales won’t commence until towards the end of the year. 

The Mokka X, just outside the UK’s top-ten sellers for 2018, is by far Vauxhall’s oldest model on sale, despite a refresh in which 'X' was added to the name in 2016. The car’s platform and powertrains date from well before Opel and Vauxhall were taken under the wing of the PSA Group.

This means the Astra and Insignia Grand Sport are now the last models on sale to be developed solely by former owner General Motors (GM). The Astra has just received a facelift but doesn’t make use of PSA engines, with the company instead choosing to finish the half-done development of new GM units.

There will of course be reasons behind this, but to stop selling a car just outside the top 10 best sellers is strange.  

Adding an X to the end of the name was another piece of "genius" Vauxhall marketing. I noticed they have Turbo badges on Insignias now - have we been transported back to the 80s? Bizzare marketing yet again. I do accept it's next to impossible to market Vauxhall's though - no distinguishing features, adequate but no more, haven't made a great car in 30 years. They need a modern day Lotus Carlton (not a Monaro that meant nothing to UK buyers initially). Break out a spectacular BEV sports car, so anything to revive the brand.

Someone had to take the decision to take it out of production clearly, so why when it's a decent seller? Profit margin, factory utilisation, etc?

I thought the PSA-based Crossland X was a partial replacement for the Mokka X? The Mokka X is near the end of its life anyway, and I assume that withdrawing it early saves on royalty payments to GM.

That Crossland is as ungainly as any ugly suv on the market.

The Mokka is awful and its popularity hardly flatters the wider UK buying public. People really will buy (or lease) any old s*** if they think it makes them look good.

And you think this French lot make something better. Hardly.
