Introducing the CUPRA Born

Created by Seat in 2018, the CUPRA brand is its independent, high-performance, ‘sister brand’.  With the CUPRA Formentor, Leon and Ateca models all now fairly established, this year we’ll welcome the new CUPRA Born to UK roads.

The brand is instantly recognised for its sporty elements both inside and out, and this continues with the Born.  However it's not simply design over substance, and environmentally-friendly considerations are evident across its interior, with Bucket seats created from up-cycled marine plastics. 

With a high-definition 12” infotainment screen easily accessible, you can find everything you need at the touch of a button, with the added benefit of having access to the ‘My CUPRA’ App for control on the go. 

Integrating pure electric powertrain technology with a choice of either the 150PS (110kW) or 204PS (150kW) electric engines, it is estimated to offer around 263 miles of electric range.  With a 58kWh battery, you will have three trim levels to choose from:


  • Rear view camera
  • Front sport bucket seats in black SEAQUAL® Yarn
  • 5.3" Digital Cockpit
  • LED headlights and taillights
  • 18" ‘Cyclone’ alloy wheels
  • 12" Navigation system
  • Wireless Full Link smartphone integration
  • Heated, leather-wrapped multi-function steering wheel
  • Adaptive cruise control


Includes everything within in V1 (or in replacement to), plus:

  • Heated front seats
  • 19” ‘Typhoon’ machined alloy wheels
  • Dark tinted rear windows
  • Augmented reality head-up display 


Everything within V2 plus (or in replacement to), plus:

  • Pneumatically adjustable lumbar support
  • Granite Grey Dinamica® seats
  • 20” ‘Hurricane’ machined aerowheels
  • 12 way electrically adjustable front seats
  • Massage function

Charging your Born:

If you were using an AC charger (commonly installed at home), the 58kWh 204PS battery will charge in just over 6 hours (from 0-100%).  To give a comparison, at a 120 kWh DC charger (often found close to motorways), you will be able to go from 5-80% within around 35 minutes.


With technology at the forefront of the CUPRA Born experience, you will be able to control and manage your driving experience at the touch of a button.  Access climate controls to warm up your car before your journey, monitor your charging timings, and browse more than 10,000 radio stations and podcasts from around the world!
