Even before the IAA 2019, the announced electric car concept from Seat CUPRA saw the light of day. According to the company, this redefines performance. With the CUPRA Tavascan, the company presents its own vision of a fully electrically powered SUV coupe. A system output of 225 kW (306 hp) meets a range of over 450 kilometers.
The system performance of the CUPRA Tavascan is achieved through the use of two motors – one on the front and one on the rear axle. The CUPRA Tavascan accelerates from a standstill to 100 km/h in less than 6.5 seconds. The energy required for this is drawn from a lithium-ion battery with 77 kWh. This is how a purely electric range of up to 450 kilometers is possible, measured according to the strict specifications of the WLTP driving cycle test. The battery housed in the ground ensures a low center of gravity and a very dynamic driving behavior.
Namesurer of Cupra Tavascan Concept Cars is an idyllic village in the Pyrenees, which is unique with its stunning landscape and surrounding nature.
“In addition to our first self-developed hybrid SUV, which we will bring 2020 on the market together with two other powerful plug-in hybrid models, we have already proven our technical competence with the development of the Cupra E-Racer – the world’s first pure electric touring car. With the presentation of the CUPRA Tavascan concept vehicle, we are making our vision of an all-electric sports car come true.— Wayne Griffiths, CEO CUPRA
The concept vehicle, which we are privileged to examine as one of the electric cars at the IAA 2019, shows new possibilities in what a CUPRA can offer – it meets the needs of those sitting in the vehicle at all times, according to the sporty brand, according to CUPRA itself. This is also reflected in the design of the vehicle.
The exterior of the CUPRA Tavascan skillfully combines dynamism and elegance with efficiency. The electric heart of the vehicle is deliberately emphasized in the front section. The low-slung, illuminated CUPRA logo is also a real eye-catcher. In addition, the air slits in the first all-electric concept are by no means just for show: “They increase efficiency by allowing the air to flow evenly over the body or directing it inwards to cool the battery.”
Attention was also paid to a cleanly diverted air flow and improved air resistance in the distinctive wheel housings, which accommodate 22-inch light-alloy wheels in turbine design. In the stern, the diffuser for optimal aerodynamics creates and at the same time creates an expressive sporty as well as elegant optics.
The continuous, the illuminated Cupra Logo Luminous Belt underscores the striking character of the Cupra Tavascan. Purely visually reminiscent of the outer skin of the Concept Cars by Seat Cupra to liquid metal. Carbon fiber elements in body color and fine copper details also ensure that certain something.
Inside holds the concept vehicle from Cupra what promises it out. The forming outlines of the concept vehicle reflect in the interior. Material and technology concepts are combined there and thus create the balance between simple usability and comfort. The dynamic approaches to technology and design are underlined by the use of high-contrast colors and carbon elements.
The shell seats with 3D leather relief provide comfortable safety with their perfect synthesis of form and function. The wing-shaped dashboard is not only a real eye-catcher, but also creates a spacious feeling. The driver receives all the information they need via a fully digital 12.3-inch display, which is complemented by another 13-inch infotainment display.
What is interesting is the fact that the interior of the concept vehicle can even be adjusted as required. This allows the larger screen to rotate towards the passenger. Thanks to the speakers and smartphone connections integrated into the bucket seats, the CUPRA Tavascan offers a completely new automotive experience. The Seat CUPRA concept vehicle will celebrate its official world premiere at this year’s IAA.
