the cupra tavascan concept is the first road cupra to use a 100% electric powertrain. set to make its public debut at the 2019 frankfurt motor show later this month, the vehicle is powered by two electric motors – one on the front axle and one on the rear axle – for a total output of 225kw. it is equipped with a 77kWh battery pack for an all-electric range of up to 450km. it can reach 100km/h in less than 6.5 seconds.

airflow is a critical component of the zero-emission cupra concept. its muscular wheel arches house 22” turbine alloy wheels, focused on shifting air cleanly, allowing the coupe SUV to glide, minimising resistance.

inside the cabin are sculptural 3D leather relief bucket seats, while the wing dashboard floats across the front of the interior, providing both focus, and a sense of space. behind the steering wheel, the driver is at the forefront, with a 12.3” digital instrument cluster providing all the information they need, supplemented by a 13” infotainment display. the larger screen can shift its focus, moving towards the passenger when needed, while integrated into each of the vehicle’s bucket seats; speakers and smartphone connectivity mean that all occupants can take advantage of the vehicle’s interior space.

 

 

the prototype of the tavascan concept will debut at this year’s IAA frankfurt international motor show from sep 12, – sep 22, 2019. seat hasn’t confirm any plans to bring the vehicle to production.
