5 things you need to know about the CUPRA Born

5 things you need to know about the CUPRA Born


If you’re considering buying a CUPRA Born and are keen to know more, here are five things you need to know.

The CUPRA Born is arguably one of the best-looking electric vehicles on sale today

Despite being a fairly large and practical hatchback, it manages to blend this with a sporty stance and some fantastic design details. If you’re considering buying a CUPRA Born and are keen to know more, here are five things you need to know.


It shares a platform with the Volkswagen ID.3


CUPRA is part of the Volkswagen Group, and as such, it gets access to the new electric vehicle platform called MEB. This gives it proven underpinnings with a range of powerful electric motors, long range batteries and advanced driving technologies.

It’s also a bit bigger than it looks in photos, which means it’s practical and spacious inside, another useful trait of that MEB platform.

Good choice of powertrains

There are two battery options available in the form of the entry-level 58kWh and larger 77kWh. The smaller battery is offered in three trims with a 201bhp motor, while the top-spec trim can have a 228bhp motor.

Opt for the larger battery and you have the mid- and top-spec trims, which are only offered with the more powerful motor.

To get maximum range you’ll need to opt for the more powerful model with the large battery, which has a claimed range of up to 340 miles. However, most Borns in the range will do around 260 miles so whichever powertrain you opt for you’ll get a decent distance between charges.

It looks fantastic


We might be repeating ourselves but it’s worth shining a light on just how good the CUPRA Born looks. Despite sharing much with the Volkswagen ID.3, it has a much more dynamic appearance that shrinks its proportions.

The front end is a particular highlight, with the bonnet curving down into the grille, giving the car a purposeful stance. The headlights are fairly small and have a cool light signature, too. The lower grille has sharp lines and wedges, with copper trim pieces that contrast nicely with the car’s paint.

It has a premium interior

While the ID.3 feels like it’s focused on being hard-wearing and family friendly, the CUPRA is a far more upmarket affair. There are high quality materials used throughout, with more copper detailing bringing a splash of colour.

It’s also suitably tech-heavy, with a prominent infotainment display that has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard, while music fans should look at the optional Beats audio upgrade.

It’s reasonably priced


Electric vehicles are notoriously expensive, but the CUPRA Born represents great value for money. Prices start at £33,735 for the V1 trim with the 58kWh battery and 201bhp motor, which gets you 18-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights and tail lights, 12-inch infotainment display and Seaqual sustainable upholstery.

Opt for the top-spec V3 model with the 77kWh battery and 228bhp motor and prices start at £41,975, which adds 20-inch alloy wheels, improved driver aids and faster 135kW charging.
