  • A weekend history in Versilia to show how to enjoy electric mobility in peace

Turin. The value of zero number describes well the benefits of electric mobility: zero emissions are combined with zero noise, zero vibrations, zero smell and zero gear changes. With these rights, it becomes inevitable to increase the fun in a 100% electric car like the Opel Mokka-e, even for weekend trips outside the city.

The Opel Mokka-e shows the importance of the offer, which combines external compactness with a futuristic design, clean and bold, with space on board for the family and its transport needs. Its length of 4.15 meters has an excellent recipe for that all-round mobility, which can embrace a long road trip and the narrow streets of the city village.

The electric variant of the Opel Mokka-e shows its versatility, thanks to a 50 kWh gravity battery, with a range of 338 km when driving according to the prescribed WLTP cycle.

To adapt this freedom and performance aspect, the Opel Mokka-e offers various DRIVE MODES, which can be activated with a selector and capable of creating a drive according to different conditions and needs. Three different positions, ECO, NORMAL and SPORT allow you to go from 60 to 100 kW of maximum power, while maximum torque increases from 180 to 260 Nm.

Thanks to the presence of a cooling circuit, the Opel Mokka-e also allows fast charging from DC columns up to 100 kWh, with charging times that can go down to 30 minutes to get a charge of 80%.

Finding charging stations is easy, through one of the many apps available. The same app also provides directions to access the charging station, with the possibility to reserve 15 minutes before connecting to the station itself, to ensure availability.

Smartphone charging tracking also allows you to move the car at the end of the charge, avoiding unnecessary costs of owning booths after charging.

From Milan, the road to Versilia first passes through the inevitable ring road, then the Autostrada del Sole, then continues along the Cisa road, thus reaching the main tourist centers of the coast.

About 120 km from the start, a stop at Fidenza Village, a well-known shopping destination, is the perfect place to combine lunch with the inevitable shopping session to recharge the car. With the Opel Mokka-e you travel about 7 km per kWh, and it is easy to make rough estimates based on residual range and travel requirements. As with charging a smartphone, you can stop charging at any time.

With regard to the cost of additions, the packages of a large operator such as Enel X are very competitive, and in promotion until next August. For example, the ‘Travel Plus’ subscription includes 320 kWh at a monthly cost of 99 euros, necessary for traveling over 2,000 km: in practice it is 31 cents per kWh. With this subscription, a 30 kWh charge that can travel 200 km costs more than 9 euros. For a car with a traditional internal combustion engine, about 12 liters of gasoline would be needed, or about 23 euros.

After stopping in Fidenza Village, the Opel Mokka-e continues its journey on the Cisa highway. The curvilinear design of this historic road keeps the speed below 80 kilometers per hour on average, one for enhancing the energy efficiency of the electric vehicle. As soon as the maximum height of 745 meters is exceeded, the car begins to benefit from an energy recovery step during deceleration. The ‘B’ mode (like Brake Brake) which can be activated from the gear selector, controls at certain points to make the energy recovery greater, giving an action similar to the effect of engine cut-off.

The Autostrada della Cisa also shows the advantages of the ACC (Advanced Cruise Control) system, which on the Opel Mokka-e automatically adjusts the speed according to the distance to the vehicle in front, and automatic intervention on the brake and accelerator. All this automatically keeps the car in the center of the lane, even when cornering.

The final result, after arriving at Versilia, is that of the remaining charge of the towing battery which is more than enough to cope with domestic journeys.

Pietrasanta, Forte dei Marmi, Camaiore and Viareggio are the most popular places in terms of tourism, and offer a relaxing time even before the expected bathing season. On the morning of the second day, a long walk along the seafront of Viareggio is an opportunity to recharge for a long time that will ensure the return trip. Among other things, given that in Versilia most of the car parks are paid, recharging the car allows you to save the cost of parking on the blue lines.

Between long walks, fish-based lunches and visits to the many boutiques that fill Versilia’s charming towns, the weekend time flies by so quickly. Fortunately, returning to Milan with the Opel Mokka-e helps prolong the prosperity that only zero-emission driving can provide.

When returning, the Opel Mokka-e takes advantage of the presence of 12 fast charging stations in the large Autogrill in Fiorenzuola (6 in each direction of travel), extending the range. With its power of 50 kW, the Fiorenzuola range recharges the Opel Mokka-e with 24 kWh in just 27 minutes, providing more than 160 kilometers of additional freedom. And it was just the time needed to think, before the deadline that proves to us how much the electric weekend is already the new normal, thanks to the Opel Mokka-e and its exciting driving pleasure and zero emissions.
