You’re going to be hearing the name Cupra a lot more in the future. With the rise of the EV, there are more new vehicle manufacturers than ever.

The Cupra Born is a large, rear wheel drive hatchback firing a lot of bang for your buck with a range of up to 511 km  at a price point start of $59,990 plus on road costs. In WA, expect a price of around $66,490 driveaway.

The Born is built on a dedicated BEV platform – called MEB – it’s been raised from the ground up to deliver not only 7.0-second 0-100km/h straight line speed, but most importantly driver engagement through the steering and rear-drive chassis. 

This is supported by 19- or 20-inch alloy wheels, optional wide Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tyres, and a high level of standard technology and luxury for the price.
