After showing off its el-Born concept car at the Geneva Motor Show last year, Seat shifted its design to the Cupra brand, which turned it into an electric hatchback that will produce energy,media reported. The re-polished electric car is known to look much bigger than a compact SUV. While it’s certainly not as crazy as the e-Racer concept car, it will bring some extra style options and zero-emissions efficiency to the car world.
The revamped el-Born managed to retain most of the concept car’s creativity, but at the same time put on a more classic, market-friendly outfit. If anything, the production version actually looks better than the concept version, especially with this particular copper-plated dark blue coat.
“We’ve taken the original concept to a new level and created a new, dynamic design, as well as a redesign of the technical content,” said Wayne Griffiths, Cupra CEO. Cupra el-Born is a vivid testament to how performance and electrification are a good pair of partners. “
El-Born is understood to be a springboard for the VW MEB architecture, but beyond that, Cupra doesn’t give much more details about its technical content. But we already know that a 77-kilowatt-hour battery pack can power the rear wheels up to 310 miles (500 kilometers). El-Born can accelerate from 0 to 31mph (50km/h) in 2.9 seconds, and Cupra also mentions the sporty dynamic chassis control system.
As for the interior of the car, el-Born has a modern, sporty interior, bucket seats wrapped under ultra-fibre, a mode selection button on the steering wheel, a head-up display with AR technology and a large infotainment screen.
Normally, it would be thought that the car might be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, but now that the 2021 show has been cancelled, Cupra will schedule other opening events.
