Cupra lifts lid on three new electrified models

Cupra has whetted the appetite by teasing three new models - which are all planned for release over the next couple of years.

The Terramar SUV, the Tavascan crossover, and the UrbanRebel city car are all slated for launch by 2025.

And while Cupra has talked about these models before, this is the first time we’ve seen them in so much detail.

The medium-sized Terramar SUV isn’t fully-electric, but it is available as a plug-in hybrid, and it could join the Cupra line-up as early as 2024.

While traditional petrol engines will also be up for grabs, the PHEV Terramar will be able to travel for up to 62 miles using electricity alone and also has the ‘sportiness’ to surprise, says Cupra.

A spokesperson for the Spanish firm adds: 

“Terramar, our new sporty hybrid SUV, perfectly combines bold proportions with a long striking bonnet, while the shark nose means breakthrough resistance and the determination to win.”

At 4.5m in length, the Terramar is just slightly longer than a Volvo XC40, to give you some idea of how large it’ll be.

Moving on to the Cupra Tavascan, details here are still scant.

But a Cupra spokesperson tells us: 

“The car encapsulates Cupra’s electrified vision and will remain faithful to the 2019 concept car. The Cupra Tavascan doesn’t just capture the vision of contemporary electrification, but it also globalises the brand, taking Cupra to new markets. It will be launched in 2024.”

Judging by the one pic we’ve got so far, the Tavascan (pictured bottom left in the main group shot) looks to be a compact SUV-crossover with one of the most aggressive-looking bonnets we’ve seen in a long time!

And then there’s the fully-electric UrbanRebel, which we saw in concept form earlier this year - and which also looks to be an absolute winner in terms of its styling.

Cupra is certainly hedging its bets on the UrbanRebel being a smash hit, talking about it being the ‘biggest project for our company in the upcoming years’.

At 4.03m in length, it’s about the same size as a Ford Fiesta or Volkswagen Polo. Cupra says it’s a car with sustainability at its core, using recycled polymers and bio-based materials to make a truly ‘environmentally-conscious vehicle’.

It’ll also be fast!

With 226 PS of power it’ll be capable of accelerating from 0-62mph in just 6.9 seconds. And it’ll also have a decent range of up to 273 miles between charges - which is more than you get with the VW ID.3.

Wayne Griffiths, Cupra CEO, said: 

“The UrbanRebel is more than just a car to Cupra. This is the model that will democratise urban electric mobility. Emotional, sexy, and fun to drive and at the same time accessible. We prove that electric cars don’t have to be boring. This will be the next generation’s entry into our range.”

And he added: 

“The future is electric. The future is Cupra.”

Will bring you further updates as and when they drop.

The team were great and went above and beyond to find a van during this mad time where there seems to be no stock. Did everything to find a solution that fit within our budget and they were honest, open and super helpful. Great service.
