In 2019, the concept version of the Seat el-Born was presented at the Geneva Motor Show. Now the sporty variant has also appeared: the Cupra el-Born is the brand’s first power EV for public roads.
The el-Born has a battery pack of 82 kWh that will take you up to 500 kilometers away. Of course you only achieve that if you use the ‘accelerator pedal’ very economically. And of course the Cupra el-Born is not intended for that.
Cupra talks about a sprint time from 0 to 50 km / h in 2.9 seconds. The sprint to 100 km / h is not given. The power is 204 hp, equal to the Seat el-Born.
Fortunately, fast charging is possible with the el-Born. Hang the car on the charger for 30 minutes, and you can already travel 260 kilometers.
Volkswagen ID.3 as a basis
Nothing is left of the good looks of the Volkswagen ID.3 , on which the el-Born is based. Everywhere we see sharp lines and details in the characteristic Cupra color.
Also in the interior we see the bronze color everywhere. Among other things on the dashboard, the center tunnel, the doors and in the upholstery.
In any case, it is clear that you are not driving a boring car.
Cupra is hard at work
Until recently Cupra was a label for the sporty models of Seat . But since 2018 Cupra has been an independent sporting sub-brand of Seat.
A Cupra is usually based on an existing Seat model. They came earlier with the Cupra Leon and the Cupra Ateca.
The Formentor followed earlier this year. For a change, this model is not based on an existing Seat. No, the Formentor is Cupra’s first ‘own’ model.
In addition to street models, Cupra is also responsible for Seat racing cars. The offer currently consists of two models. The TCR and the fully electric E-Racer.
Next year the Cupra el-Born will roll off the production line in Zwickau, Germany.
