The new Cupra Born model has been effectively revealed ahead of its debut on May 25th.
Pre-debuted by the el-Born concept, the production Cupra Born model will debut on May 25 and will look almost identical to the concept version. The company did not go into details, but the road model is a docked Volkswagen ID. 3. As a result, the hatchback has a sharper design with angular headlights and a more aggressive air intake that’s largely obstructed.
The side sections of the model are less dramatic as they are borrowed from Volkswagen. The novelty even has a body similar to its German counterpart. At the same time, the Born has sportier side skirts and a “floating” roof in the form of a darkened C-pillar.
More importantly, Cupra is the first to see the rear of a hatchback with an angled tailgate and full-width light strip.
The brand’s engineers and designers have emphasized the vehicle’s width with a horizontal light spot and combined it with a pronounced diffuser that increases the vehicle’s efficiency and aerodynamics. Electrification has to go hand in hand with efficiency, and in this regard, the team has brought them together perfectly.
Apart from the exterior, Cupra has released several images of the interior. This photo showcases the textured finish and bronze accents. The second photo shows a slim center console covered in upholstery and even more bronze elements.
Cupra keeps the specifications under wraps, but the model will be based on the MEB platform. Recall that the El-Born is equipped with a 77 kWh battery, as well as a rear electric motor. The latter develops 201 hp, as in ID.3.
