Opel has released a sketch previewing the next-generation Mokka’s dashboard, which the German firm says will be fully digital yet “detoxed”.

The Rüsselsheim-based company says the driver be seated in front of “a high-tech cockpit that is both fully digital and yet focussed” or "detoxed". Opel calls this new facia the “Pure Panel”.

“With the new Mokka, we bring the Opel Pure Panel to our customers for the first time. Large displays, seamlessly integrated into one horizontal information format, a minimal number of physical controls and clear detoxed digital information, all together create an optimised customer experience,” said Mark Adams, Opel design vice-president.

The brand claims the new layout with its “widely stretched screens” makes a multitude of buttons and controls “superfluous”.

“It provides the latest digital technologies and the most important information for the driver, for example, management of the energy stored in the battery of the electric Mokka, without any irritating visual stimuli,” the firm said.

Opel added that minimal buttons and controls offered “the right balance between digitalisation and purely intuitive operation, without needing to navigate into sub-menus”.

The new Mokka is expected to switch to a version of the PSA Group’s EMP1 modular platform and drop the "X" suffix from its name.
