VW’s SEAT Unveils The Cupra Tavascan Electric SUV Concept

If you’re an avid connoisseur of automotive culture, you’ve likely heard of SEAT, a Spanish manufacturer that’s housed under Volkswagen’s ambitious umbrella. Since the company’s conception in 1950, they’ve created a handful of the most interesting platforms in the industry, to include the Arosa, Ibiza, Córdoba, and León. Now, the Martorell-based brand has unveiled its most recent project, the Cupra Tavascan Electric SUV Concept.

The Cupra Tavascan Electric SUV is a futuristic take on the company’s already-visionary design principle, boasting a sleek, jet-like exterior, aerodynamic curvature, and an all-electric powerplant that’s supplied by a performance-oriented 77 kWh battery pack. It features two separate electric motors — one situated at the vehicle’s front axle, and one at the rear — resulting in 225kw of total power, and over 280 miles of travel on a single charge. But the Tavascan’s performance isn’t the only thing that gives the SUV its legs; on the vehicle’s exterior, a set of turbine alloy wheels minimize its aerodynamic resistance by shifting air away from the Cupra’s refined paneling. A spacious interior gives way to various quality-of-life implementations, including a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, a 13-inch infotainment display, and smart connectivity that’s catered toward use by each individual occupant. Look for a prototype of SEAT’s Cupra Tavascan Electric SUV at the 2019 IAA Frankfurt International Motor Show in September.
