On the Way to the Assembly Line, Seat’s Electric Concept Has Become the Cupra el-Born

Last year, Seat presented the el-Born, an electric concept car, at the Geneva International Motor Show.

However, the manufacturer changed its mind about the model’s production at the last moment and released a similar EV but under the Cupra brand. The production EV was named the Cupra el-Born and will be released in 2021.

The new vehicle, like its donor, is based on the MEB platform. Despite this, it has received a more aggressive look, which is inherent in Cupra’s sports models. In particular, the el-Born features a significantly redesigned front end, namely new headlights with a certain gap between them, where an inscription with the car name and the brand logo are placed. You can also note a new bumper with an enlarged air intake, expanded side skirts and two-color wheels.

The interior of the Cupra el-Born is similar to that of the Volkswagen ID.3, the closest relative. However, the el-Born has a new raised center console, a sports steering wheel and bucket seats, as well as redesigned door panels and trim.

The company has not disclosed full technical specifications yet, but it is known that a motor is located on the rear axle and is powered by a 77-kWh battery. The EV accelerates from 0-50 km/h in 2.9 seconds. A drive range is 500 km.

In addition, the Cupra el-Born will receive the Dynamic Chassis Control Sport (DCC Sport) system, but the manufacturer will share information about it later.
