Cupra has confirmed that the next model to join its family will be the all-electric Cupra el-Born.
Since its appearance at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, the el-Born Concept Car has drawn praise for its sleek looks and personality.
Cupra’s design team has continued to evolve the vehicle’s styling since then. The present car now carries a sportier character and an even more striking visual appeal.
The Cupra el-Born is developed on Volkswagen Group’s Modular Electric Propulsion Platform platform. An 82kWh battery (with a net capacity of 77kWh), drives the rear wheels, offering a range of up to 500km.
The same battery is also capable of being fast-charged to store the energy needed for 260km of range in only 30 minutes. Cupra claims the el-Born will accelerate from zero to 50km/h in only 2.9 seconds.
Convenience features such as an Augmented Reality Head-Up Display and full connectivity will feature in the electric car. The interior encapsulates Cupra philosophy, with sports bucket seats and a new Cupra steering wheel with Cupra mode buttons.
Expect high-quality, sustainably-sourced material choices throughout the interior.
The new el-Born will be manufactured at Volkswagen’s Zwickau plant in Germany.
