Spanish car brand SEAT, now under the auspices of Volkswagen, has officially announced the launch of its new electric hatchback Cupra el-Born, which will begin sales on May 25th.
The Cupra brand itself is a subsidiary of SEAT. Two years ago, the company developed a conceptual 5-door hatchback, which never gained popularity and did not receive serial production. However, it is now an electric version of the Cupra el-Born, based on Volkswagen’s MEB trolley, on which both the ID.3 and Skoda Enyaq are based. Some of the characteristic features of the Enyaq can be seen in the new item.
But on the front, the novelty is completely new. The car is endowed with narrowed triangular optics with LED DRLs. The headlights are combined with a decorative strip, in the middle of which there is a golden logo. In a similar shade, the car emblem looks on the hood.
The new Cupra el-Born has been awarded the DCC Sport Adaptive Suspension, specially designed for the MEB bogie. The car has a smart system for selecting modes for any surface and traffic conditions. The redesigned rims feature a unique spoke pattern.
The car is equipped with a powerful 77 kWh battery, which produces 500 kilometers of track without recharging. The maximum output of a car with such a battery is 204 hp.
