Cupra Born to be brand’s first fully electric vehicle
Seat sub-brand Cupra has confirmed its Born is headed for production. It’s the first all-electric model from the Spanish brand, and is set to arrive later in 2021.
Here’s what we know so far.
Cupra Born styling
The all-electric Born shares its platform with the VW ID.3 – something quite evident in the way it looks too. The front end is much sharper and sportier than the ID.3 though, although from the side the silhouette is unmistakably similar.
The pictures we’ve seen so far indicate that it’ll get large alloy wheels, a fake set of grilles at the front and a host of bronze-colour trim – similar to other Cupra models in the line-up.
Cupra Born interior and tech
The Cupra Born gets the same tech offered in the ID.3 too. That means there’s an uncannily similar infotainment system.
You control most of the car’s functions via the central driver-orientated screen, while digital displays ahead of the driver replace analogue dials.
Cupra Born drivetrains
The Cupra has been given some tweaks to ensure it’s a sportier EV than the ID.3, although exact tech specs are to be confirmed.
Expect the electric motor to produce around 200hp though, while its 77kWh battery should be good for a range of up to 310 miles (slightly less than the ID.3’s 336).
Cupra Born prices and leasing plans
Lots of details are still under wraps, although we reckon it’ll get a list price of around £37,000 when it arrives in the UK later this year. More expensive ones will likely cost more than £40,000 – in line with the ID.3’s pricing.
We’ll bring you further details and leasing rates as soon as the Born becomes available.
