The Cupra Tavascan concept has been revealed ahead of its world debut at this year’s Frankfurt motor show.
It’s the latest concept based on the Volkswagen Group’s MEB platform, which will underpin a fleet of electric vehicles including the upcoming Volkswagen ID.3 hatchback.
The Tavascan concept uses two electric motors – one each on the front and rear axles – that produce a combined output of 225kW, enough to make the crossover reach 100km/h in less than 6.5 seconds.
Seat, Spanish subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group, has unveiled an exclusive version of its small sports wagon, named the Leon Cupra R ST.
Limited to 150 units in the UK, the Leon Cupra R ST is essentially a twin-under-the-skin to the Volkswagen Golf R wagon, powered by a 220kW/400Nm 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine hooked up to a seven-speed DSG automatic and 4Drive all-wheel drive.
Cupra, the newly spun-off performance division of Spanish manufacturer Seat, is planning an extensive model rollout in the coming years – according to a new report.
Spanish publication Periodismodel Motor claims the go-fast sub-brand intends to launch an additional seven models before 2021, joining the current Cupra Ateca SUV.
