Cupra Born is a new all-electric vehicle with a single goal: to impress drivers with its sleek appearance and agile performance. While many refer to the Cupra Born as a sportier version of VW’s ID.3, there’s much more to the picture and we are here to shed some light on this inspiring EV.
The 2022 model will feature two variants dubbed Cupra Born 45 and Cupra Born 58. The suffix indicates the vehicle’s battery capacity in kWh.
The new Cupra 2022’s most spectacular feature is its distinct yet bold design language, which perfectly complements this vehicle of the future.
The car’s highlights include 20-inch Aero alloy wheels and ceremony lights, which help it stand out from the crowd.
Buyers can choose from six different colors which include:
– Aurora Blue;
– Rayleigh Red;
– Geyser Silver;
– Quasar Grey;
– Glacial White;
– Vapor Grey.
The new Cupra model, like all other electric vehicles, is expected to have incredibly quick acceleration, thanks to the instantaneous torque associated with all electric vehicles.
However, Cupra Born’s acceleration is nothing more than average as the top variant having 204 hp reaches from 0 to 60 mph in 7.3 seconds whereas the base model does the same in 8.9 seconds.
Dynamic Chassis Control
Thanks to the vehicle’s Dynamic Chassis Control system, the suspension adjusts itself according to the driving conditions and adapting to the curves and bumps to ensure better ride quality and comfort.
Range is a common issue with most electric cars, which turns off many people who are otherwise impressed by the technology but are put off by the prospect of being limited due to a lack of a widespread charging network.
To address this issue, the model promises a range of up to 424 km thanks to its impressive battery packs.
The Cupra Born 45 has a 45 kWh battery whereas the top tier Cupra Born 58 comes with a battery capacity of 58 kWh.
The Cupra Born 45 takes 30 minutes to charge from a 110kW DC source, while the Cupra Born 58 can be fully charged in 35 minutes using a 120kW DC source.
It should be noted that the 58 kWh battery charges much faster than the 45 kWh pack.
The electric power consumption of the two variants (depending upon driving conditions and driving style) is an under:
– Cupra Born 45: 15 kWh per 100 km;
– Cupra Born 58: 15.5 to 16.7 kWh per 100 km.
All EV manufacturers provide a dedicated system for charging their vehicles at home. The Cupra charger is one such option from the automaker, using which owners can easily charge their Cupra Born EVs.
In addition to this, owners can use the Easy charging app to keep them updated regarding the charging stations near their current location.
The all-new 2022 Cupra Born is currently available for purchase in the UK. The base V1 model starts at £33,735 whereas the V2 and V3 variants will set you back £34,190 and £37,375 respectively.
The 2022 Cupra Born is a great option if you are looking for a car that not only promises zero emissions but also has low ownership costs and tax breaks.
The brand might not be as flashy as Tesla or Mercedes but the service record and customer reviews speak highly of Cupra.
However, regardless of variant, the acceleration of the vehicle falls short of that of many competitors.
