With an advanced powertrain and extensive standard equipment list, Cupra Born will be available in four battery outputs and three trims.

The 58kWh 204PS model will be the first to be available from retailers and delivered to UK customers with an estimated emission-free range of 263 miles. 0-31mph can be achieved in just 2.9 thanks to 310Nm of instantaneous torque.

Charging from 0-100% takes 6 hours 15 minutes using an 11kW AC wall charger, but it can also be recharged from 5-80% using a 120kW DC rapid charger in just 35 minutes.

A 45kWh 150PS (110kW) derivative of the Cupra Born will be sold at a lower price point will follow soon after.

The remaining batteries – 58kWh 231PS (170kW) e-Boost and 77kWh 231PS (170kW) e-Boost – will be available later in 2022, with pricing to be announced in due course.

Customers will be able to choose from three highly specified trim levels: V1, V2 and V3. The 45kWh 150PS powertrain will be available exclusively in V1 trim, while customers will be able to specify all three trim levels with the 58kWh 204PS powertrain.

V1 (£33,735) includes 18in alloy wheels, front and rear LED lights, a 12.0in infotainment screen, 5.3in digital cluster, rear-view camera and a host of advanced driver aids.

V2 (£34, 190) adds larger 19in wheels, privacy glass, as well as a head-up display and heated front seats.

The range-topping V3 (£37,375) offers 20in wheels and 12-way electronically adjustable bucket seats, which are finished in Dinamica leather and equipped with a massage function.

Born is both the brand’s first all-electric car, and the second model available exclusively as a Cupra, following the launch of the Formentor coupe SUV in 2020. It has already been announced that it will be joined in 2024 by the electric SUV, Tavascan, and in 2025 by the small urban electric car, the concept was named UrbanRebel.
