Cupra El-Born (2020) At A Glance

+Electric car with 261-mile range.

-On sale 2020.

The electric hatch features an 82kWh battery - with Cupra claiming it can be charged to cover 161 miles in just 30 minutes. It can go from 0-31mph in only 2.9 seconds.

The El-Born was forst revealed as a SEAT concept back in 2019, named after a neighborhood in Barcelona - it would've been SEAT's first proper electric vehicle. But the new figures suggest the Cupra El-Born is much sportier than the SEAT concept, which promised a lesser range of 261 miles.

The El-Born gets an Augmented Reality Head-Up Display - as seen in the Volkswagen ID 3 - and full connectivity. It also gets sports bucket seats and the new CUPRA steering wheel with mode buttons and high-quality.

When do you think the Volkswagen ID.3 and SEAT el-Born will actually be available?
"When do you think the Volkswagen ID.3 and SEAT el-Born will actually be available? Any other similar cars to look out for?"
First deliveries of the ID.3 are expected mid-2020. I understand there's already a considerable waiting list, so you might struggle to actually get your hands on one if you haven't got your name down already. You could also consider a Kia e-Niro or Tesla Model 3. Also look at a MINI Electric, Honda E or Peugeot e-208, if you don't need as much space.
