Cupra Born

Part of the Volkswagen Group, Cupra is the sports division of the Seat brand from Spain, which makes the Born – due later this year – an interesting choice as the German conglomerate’s first EV in Australia.

Named after a Barcelonan district, the German-built Born employs VW’s MEB EV architecture, and is heavily based on the VW ID.3 not available locally.
