-Expect a long waiting list...

The new Cupra Tavascan is derived from the Cupra Tavascan concept car showcased in 2019, it follows the success of the popular Cupra Born as the brand's second electric car.

Designed to rival the Volkswagen ID.4 and other sporty alternatives like the Skoda Enyaq iV vRS, Kia EV6, Hyundai Ioniq 5, Ford Mustang Mach-E, and the Tesla Model Y, the Cupra Tavascan presents a family-friendly mid-size SUV with a distinct sporty edge.

Production of the new Cupra Tavascan will take place at the Volkswagen Group Anhui factory in China, specializing in electric cars. Cupra aims to produce over 50,000 units annually, catering to both the European and Chinese markets, with the UK being a significant market for this compelling new SUV coupe.

In terms of pricing, the high-end Cupra Tavascan is expected to sit above the petrol-powered Cupra Ateca, which starts at just under £43,000. The new Tavascan is likely to be priced from £45,000, with higher-performance models exceeding £50,000, as the brand aims to elevate its position in the market.

Inside, the Cupra Tavascan boasts a striking interior with a pronounced central spine forming the basis of the cockpit. The dashboard incorporates floating elements, and Cupra's trademark copper accents add a touch of luxury.

A digital instrument panel and a large 15.0-inch infotainment screen, featuring Cupra's Human Machine Interface, provide an intuitive and immersive user experience. The car's cabin is furnished with sporty bucket seats and ample stowage space.

Powered by a 77kWh battery, the Cupra Tavascan will be available in two versions: a single motor model with 286PS and a range-topping VZ dual motor variant producing 340PS with all-wheel drive.

The VZ model can distribute up to 30% of power to the front wheels through a 110PS electric motor, ensuring optimal traction and performance. The SUV coupe offers an impressive range of up to 341 miles for the rear-wheel-drive version and around 321 miles for the dual-motor model.
