The Spanish brother of the VW ID.3 is in the starting blocks: With the Cupra Born the first fully electric Cupra model can now be ordered.

The lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 58 kWh stores enough energy for around 420 kilometers. With a charging power of 100 kW, it can be charged from 5 to 80 percent of its capacity in just 35 minutes. A maximum torque of 310 Newton meters is transferred to the driven rear axle, and it only takes 7.3 seconds to accelerate the Cupra Born with 150 kW (204 PS) from a standstill to 100 km / h.

In order to be able to cover the different customer needs as well as possible, three further versions of the Cupra Born with different performance levels and battery capacities will follow in the coming months. Two variants with an output of up to 170 kW (231 hp); They can probably be ordered from the end of this year, with the first deliveries planned for February 2022.

They differ in their battery capacity of 58 kWh and 77 kWh. These two energy stores enable a range of approx. 420 kilometers or up to approx. 540 kilometers according to the WLTP. The drive range is rounded off at the bottom with the entry-level model with 110 kW (150 PS) and a battery capacity of 45 kWh, which will be available from the second quarter of 2022.

All four versions already have extensive standard equipment. These include a 5.3-inch, fully digital instrument cluster, Cupra sports bucket seats at the front, the Cupra Mode Selector for selecting the various driving profiles, 18-inch alloy wheels, Keyless Go, a lane departure warning system, an ultrasonic parking aid at the front and rear, the “Front Assist “With city emergency braking function and full LED headlights and rear lights.
