CUPRA unveils Tavascan – its first all-electric SUV coupe
3 min read Published 31 May 23

CUPRA has unveiled its first all-electric SUV coupe – the CUPRA Tavascan which will be launched in 2024.

The car is CUPRA’s second fully electric model following the CUPRA Born and is based closely on the 2019 concept car.

“Back when we presented the Tavascan concept at the IAA in Frankfurt 2019, it was our dream car – a manifesto for everything we wanted CUPRA to become,” said Wayne Griffiths. “Since then, we’ve kept believing that if we dream it, we can create it. Well, today, that dream comes true.”

The CUPRA Tavascan represents the impulse for a new striking design language and the exterior design delivers athletic and sporty proportions.

From the front, the matrix LED with the three-triangle eye signature is instantly recognisable. The interior is a piece of architecture thanks to the characterful central spine together with the slim air vents that are almost invisible.

The CUPRA Tavascan features DCC Sport dynamic chassis technology, sport suspension and progressive steering. These attributes, with the addition of performance tyres mounted on 21” forged alloy wheels, deliver a unique sporty driving experience.

Based on the Volkswagen Group’s MEB platform, the brand’s first all-electric SUV coupé will be available with two power outputs: 286PS (210kW) and 340PS (250kW); the higher power output version adds dual-motor all-wheel drive, delivering performance with maximum traction. The CUPRA Tavascan VZ can reach 31mph in just 2.4 seconds (0 to 62mph in just 5.6 seconds).

It also provides enough capacity for a range of around 341 miles thanks to the 77kWh net capacity battery pack. The CUPRA Tavascan can add an additional 62 miles of range in as little as seven minutes. The battery can be charged from 10% to 80% in just under half an hour using a 135kW charging point.

The CUPRA Tavascan features a 15” infotainment system – the largest so far in a CUPRA model – with a newly designed and developed Human Machine Interface (HMI). The CUPRA Tavascan also integrates for the first time a high-fidelity 12-speaker audio sound system developed in collaboration with premium audio firm Sennheiser.

Designed and developed in Barcelona, the CUPRA Tavascan will be produced at the Volkswagen Group’s Anhui factory in China, a state-of-the-art innovation hub for e-mobility, and will be launched in 2024.
