Cupra is a relatively new division for Seat, and, as you probably know is specialized in building the high-performance versions of the Seat models. However, at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show it will come with something different: the Tavascan electric concept. The concept takes its name from a village located in the Pyrenees and is suppose to preview a new four-door crossover from the Spanish brand.
The Tavascan concept car is powered by two electric motors – one integrated on the front axle, the second at the rear – that deliver a combined output of 306 horsepower. The motors take their power from a 77kWh lithium-ion battery pack and ensure a driving range of 450 kilometers. The sprint from 0 to 60 mph is done in 6.5 seconds.
The exterior is very easily recognizable as a Cupra: an illuminated CUPRA logo sitting low under the grille, muscular wheel arches that hide 22” turbine alloy wheels, and a rear diffuser that provides functional aerodynamics and creates a feeling of performance. The concept features a liquid metal paint combined with tone-on-tone carbon fiber and delicate copper details.
For the interior Cupra opted for contrasting colors, structural carbon, diffused LED ambient lighting, contrasting leather, carbon and Alcantara. And because we are also looking at a concept car that wants to be a luxurious car, Cupra also added a 12.3” digital instrument cluster and a 13” infotainment display.
