The CUPRA Born
Today, CUPRA confirms that the next model to join the family will be all-electric: the CUPRA Born.
Since its appearance at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, the Born Concept Car has drawn praise for its sleek looks and personality. Since then, the design team has continued to evolve the vehicle’s styling, giving it a sportier character and an even more striking visual appeal.
Developed on Volkswagen Group’s MEB platform, the CUPRA Born boasts a cutting-edge drivetrain: a 77kWh (gross: 82kWh) battery, driving the rear wheels, offering a range of up to 310 miles (500km). Thanks to its fast charging capability, the CUPRA Born will take the energy needed for at least 161miles (260km) in only 30 minutes. Not only is the battery efficient but also powerful, delivering acceleration from 0-31mph (0-50km/h) in only 2.9 seconds.
The CUPRA Born will also offer convenience features such as an Augmented Reality Head-Up Display and full connectivity. The interior encapsulates CUPRA philosophy, with sports bucket seats, the new CUPRA steering wheel with CUPRA mode buttons and high-quality material choices throughout.
The new CUPRA Born will be manufactured at the Zwickau plant in Germany.
SEAT Vice-President for Sales and Marketing and CUPRA CEO Wayne Griffiths stated: “CUPRA Born displays all the genes of the CUPRA brand and we have taken the original concept to the next level creating a new sporty and dynamic design and reengineering the technological content. CUPRA Born is the living proof that performance and electrification are a great match.”
The new CUPRA Born’s launch in 2021 will bring sustainable mobility with a unique character and dynamism, as well as future-thinking technology, that customers demand.
