The CUPRA Born is the brand’s first all-electric vehicle, with four variants ranging from 150PS to 231PS, the fastest accelerating model achieving 0-62mph in 6.6 seconds, and the longest range model achieving 335 miles on a single charge. Even better, 125kW fast charging adds 62 miles range in as little as seven minutes.
The CUPRA Born is the first model of the brand to be delivered to customers net CO2 neutral. Energy from renewable sources is used in the supply chain and the remaining emissions are offset by environmental and project investments certified to the highest standards.
Designed and developed in Barcelona, at the headquarters in Martorell, the CUPRA Born will go into production at the Zwickau plant in Germany this September.
The CUPRA Born will offer a choice of 150PS (110kW) and a 45kWh battery with a range of 211 miles; 204PS (150kW) with a 58kWh battery, and up to 231PS (170kW) with a 58kWh battery with ‘e-Boost’, both with a 260 mile range; as well as up to 231PS (170kW) with a 77kWh battery with ‘e-Boost’ with a 335 mile range. (All ranges are based on official WLTP test cycle)
Fast recharging (125kW) is also possible, with 62 miles of additional range delivered in as little as seven minutes (77kWh battery only).
As well as traditional sales, the CUPRA Born will be offered under subscription contracts, with a monthly fee that will include the use of the vehicle and other related services.
UK pricing for CUPRA Born will be announced in quarter four 2021 with deliveries starting at the beginning of 2022.
The battery can be recharged from 5% to 80% in as little as 35 minutes (125kW).
The ride comfort and handling is enhanced with optional Dynamic Chassis Control – enabling the driver to tune the damper and shock absorber settings across four modes, ‘Range’, ‘Comfort’, ‘Individual’ or ‘CUPRA’.
The CUPRA Born benefits from an augmented reality head-up display system, which projects crucial driving information onto the windscreen, and appears layered over the real world (not available on entry trim). Data that’s displayed includes driver assistance indicators, vehicle speed and navigation commands. All information is directly in the driver’s line of sight, improving the overall driving experience and minimising the need for the driver to look away from the road ahead.
