Opel Mokka-e in long-term rental at €185/month, good or bad deal?

The Opel Mokka is one of the firm’s bestsellers at the Blitz, and by launching an electric version technically very close to the Peugeot e-2008, the German firm intends to gain valuable market share. And to liven up its commercial offer, Opel is unveiling a particularly attractive financing offer at €185/month for its electric SUV. Decryption.

Opel Mokka-e

In the world of 100% electric SUVs, there are some well-known French models such as the Peugeot e-2008 or the Renault Mégane E-Tech, there are the Germans with the EQA and other BMW iX1s, but there are a model that we tend to forget a little too much: the Opel Mokka-e. It is the technical cousin of the e-2008, and this model benefits from an engine, a battery and equipment very close to the French SUV.

Opel offers an interesting financing offer for its Mokka-e with monthly payments from 185 euros per month. After having therefore deciphered the offer of the Škoda Enyaq iV available from 299 euros / month, that of the Kia EV6 from 297 euros / month, the MG ZS EV at 99 euros / month, the Peugeot e-208 at 149 euros/month, the Renault Mégane E-Tech at 248 euros/month, the Volkswagen ID.3 at 229 euros/month, the Renault Twingo E-Tech at 79 euros/month, the Tesla Model 3 for less than 400 euros/month, the Mini Electric from 350 euros/month, the Hyundai Kona Electric from 139 euros/month, the electric Fiat 500 from 109 euros/month, the Nissan Leaf from 99 €/month, the Volkswagen ID.4 from €309/month, the Opel Corsa-e from €145/month, it’s the turn of the Mokka-e which is 40 euros more expensive than its little sister, the Corsa-e.


What model of Opel Mokka-e is offered at 185 euros per month?

As with the majority of “from” financing offers, this is the entry-level model, even if at Opel it is the second level of finish in the range since the electric Mokka is not available in basic version. It is therefore an Opel Mokka-e in its “Edition” finish with a series of rather interesting equipment:

  • 16-inch 5-twin-spoke alloy wheels, Silver;
  • 7-inch digital instrument cluster;
  • Manual air conditioning;
  • LED daytime running lights;
  • Bluetooth Multimedia Radio 7-inch color screen;
  • Mode 2 charging cable – 3.7 kW.

It lacks some essentials such as parking radars or the reversing camera. The basic color is rather original, because it is a “Vert Ikone” model. On the other hand, if you want to add one or two options (including colors), you immediately exit the offer and the monthly payments go up. Good point also, alloy wheels are available as standard.

All Opel Mokka-e are equipped with an electrical block of 136 horsepower and 260 Nm of torque. The battery has a capacity of 50 kWh and makes it possible to carry out 340 kilometers according to the WLTP cycle. The Mokka has not received the update of the Peugeot e-2008 which now allows it to display a more generous autonomy of 362 km.

What are the conditions to be eligible for the Opel Mokka-e LLD offer?

This is a long-term rental offer on 36 months and 500 kilometers maximum per month. To access your monthly mileage, Opel uses the connectivity of its vehicle. This is equipped with a SIM card, allowing you to operate the emergency call, but also the connected functionalities (myOpel) such as switching on the air conditioning remotely. This same SIM card can be used to trace the kilometers traveled by the driver. Each additional kilometer will be charged 7 euro cents.

The site indicates that the offer at 185 euros per month is subject to a contribution of 2,000 euros. The contribution is 10,500 euros at the base, but it is absorbed by the ecological bonus of 6,000 euros and the conversion bonus of 2,500 euros, which therefore requires the scrapping of an old vehicle.

To qualify for the conversion bonus, an old diesel or petrol model must be scrapped. The old scrapped vehicle must be a car or a van with a gross vehicle weight not exceeding 3500 kg. The date of first registration must be before 2011 for diesels and before 2006 for petrols.

The vehicle must have belonged to the beneficiary for at least one year, while the reference tax income per unit indicated on the tax notice of your income for the previous year must be less than or equal to €13,489.

How much will the Opel Mokka-e LLD offer cost you

Over three years of long-term rental, your Mokka-e will cost you €8,475. Opel displays its car from 36,500 euros on its site, ecological bonus of 6,000 euros and conversion bonus of 2,500 euros not deducted. This gives us, once the deductions have been made, a model displayed at the list price at €28,000. You still have to be eligible for the conversion bonus, because as you have seen above, this will not necessarily be the case for everyone.

Starting from this price, you will pay over the three years of rental 30.2% of the price of your car. This is overall the discount over three years for this type of car. As the offer is not an LOA, there is no option to buy back the vehicle. It will therefore be necessary to return the car at the end of the financing.

As always, be aware of refinishing costs which can be expensive at the time of return. We advise you to do it before at a bodybuilder, it will cost you less than at your dealer in general. If you take a vehicle back to your dealer after your LLD, he will also be a little less careful about the costs of repairs.


What are the advantages of the Opel Mokka-e LLD offer

Unquestionably, the price is the number one advantage of this offer. A 100% electric SUV, relatively well equipped moreover (despite some pettiness) at less than 200 € / month, it is rather advantageous. Better still, the Opel Mokka-e is slightly better equipped than the e-2008, while being slightly cheaper and, for once, more original since the Mokka is a little less common on our roads.

The contribution is not very high for funding of this type, even if it is greatly swallowed up by the various government aids. Without them, the contribution would be much higher or, in the other direction, the monthly payments would easily exceed 400 € / month, which becomes a whole different budget.

What are the disadvantages of the Opel Mokka-e LLD offer

The offer is immediately conditional on the conversion bonus, an aid to which few customers are eligible. The prescribed mileage over the three years is very low with 18,000 kilometers over the lease term in total (500 km multiplied by 36 months). This will suit the majority of users for everyday use, but it doesn’t leave much headroom for long journeys, not to mention that you will therefore have to pay the 7 cents per additional kilometer.

To make matters worse, the Opel Mokka-e has the same engine as a Peugeot e-208 or a Corsa-e, an engine that has a certain appetite in kWh. As a result, the range will not exceed 200 kilometers on the highway, for example. On the other hand, a purely urban use, the 400 km with a single charge are possible. It remains to determine your use.
