The CUPRA Born is the unconventional challenger, delivering electrifying performance using the most advanced electric powertrain technology, seamlessly augmenting the spirit of the CUPRA brand with an electrified future. The CUPRA Born integrates the most advanced pure electric powertrain technology: a choice of 150PS (110kW) or 204PS (150kW) electric engines deliver energy to the rear wheels, coupled to a high-performance lithium-ion battery pack with a capacity of up to 58kWh provides an enormous range of around 420km. It doesn’t stop there, it goes beyond. The CUPRA Born adds more performance, with the addition of an e-Boost1 package maximum output reaches up to 170kW and battery packs up to 77kW delivers a range of around 540km and even longer driving experience.
The CUPRA Born forms the next stage of the brand’s development, and as the industry shifts to a more environmentally conscious position, electrification is key. CUPRA has already invested heavily in the technology, bringing the plug-in hybrid versions of CUPRA Leon, CUPRA Leon Sportstourer and CUPRA Formentor models to the market. The new era is also fully electric. The CUPRA Born’s performance is matched by its stimulating style. The vehicle is designed to make an impact, stirring emotions from the moment you see it. The front end, with its meaningful character and refined cues from the lighting style, the creases in the bonnet and the framing of the CUPRA badge deliver a determined face that expresses strength.
The CUPRA Born places the driven wheels at the rear to produce a sportier feeling. The pure EV’s powertrain with a permanent magnet synchronous motor has a maximum speed over 16,000rpm and is integrated above the rear axle in front of the centre of the wheels. Torque is transferred using a single-speed transmission with a differential, smoothing out delivery to provide natural performance. Underneath the CUPRA Born sits one of the most advanced electrified powertrains ever used by the high-performance brand. Delivering electrifying performance, it marks a new chapter in the brand’s story. Two CUPRA Born variants are available; the first delivers 150PS (110kW) of power and 310Nm of torque, while there is also a 204PS (150kW)/310Nm version too. The aluminium structure is bolted to the CUPRA Born’s body, increasing overall rigidity.
The CUPRA Born is based on Volkswagen Group’s MEB architecture, the modular electric drive matrix provides a platform that CUPRA’s engineers have maximised to deliver a vehicle like no other. With the battery positioned centrally between the axles weight distribution is an almost perfect 50:50 and the centre of gravity is slung low, giving the CUPRA Born a good basis architecture to tune in order to give it its undeniable CUPRA emotional feel and sporty finish. The CUPRA Born is the proof that electric cars, can be exciting to drive: electrification and performance are a perfect match with the CUPRA Born. The underpinnings bring together the well-known, robust chassis technologies of front MacPherson struts and an advanced 5 multi-link design at the rear to provide a secure platform to build on and maximal space to optimize batterie output.
The CUPRA Born uses a water-cooled, multi-pouch lithium-ion battery system housed low and centrally in the car to offer the best centre of gravity and reduce the impact of the packs weight – instead using it as an advantage to deliver increased dynamics. But the dynamic delight doesn’t end there CUPRA has gone beyond. The CUPRA Born will also offer an e-Boost1 performance pack that takes performance to another level, increasing output up to 231PS (170kW); the e-Boost1 will be available with two battery options: with a 77kWh battery delivering the 0-100km/h in 7 seconds and with a range of around 540km , and another with a 58kWh battery reducing the 0 to 50km/h in only 2.6s and the 0-100km/h to just 6.6 seconds and a range of around 420km.
A range of materials wrap the interior to create a feeling of sportiness, refinement and quality, including the standard bucket seats that use SEAQUAL® Yarn made from upcycled marine plastics. The optional bucket seats are made of Dinamica and are also made from recycled materials. CUPRA’s approach to environmental consciousness encapsulates far more than simply the energy that power its vehicles. The dynamic character continues inside. The focus is placed strongly towards the driver as any CUPRA should be, but the cabin is designed to accommodate all occupants in style and comfort, all with an environmentally friendly twist. The high-performance EV is ready for a digital existence, integrating the latest-generation infotainment system, access to online services, an eco-system full of downloadable apps, safety and service features as well as remote access.
