CUPRA Reveals Its First-Ever Production-Ready All-Electric Car With The El-Born

Jul 9, 2020

Back in March, SEAT pulled the cover off a fully-electric hatchback concept known as the El-Born. Fast forward to today and the Spanish marque has now unveiled the production-ready version of its inaugural EV offering.

Sharing the same name as the concept presented in Geneva, the El-Born is being produced under the CUPRA banner — SEAT’s performance-focused sub-brand — and will be manufactured at Volkswagen’s factory in Zwickau, Germany. The production-ready El-Born is strikingly similar to the original concept, albeit it now sports slightly wider more aggressive bodywork, new wheels, and a revised interior complete with a HUD as standard. Powering the electric car is a 77-kWh battery pack that allows for a range of up to 310 miles and can be recharged for a 160-mile sprint in only half an hour’s time. The new CUPRA car is also equipped with what the brand is calling a Dynamic Chassis Control Sport (or DCC Sport) system, that, like BMW Motorrad’s Dynamic Damping Control, monitors speed and road conditions in real-time to electronically optimize the suspension. Though pricing and final specs have yet to be revealed, the CUPRA el-Born is scheduled for a release sometime in 2021.
