Cupra launches Cupra Tavascan production

January 27, 2021 0 By autotimesnews

The Tavascan concept, which Cupra showed at the IAA in Frankfurt in 2019, will receive a production version.

The Formentor is currently the only Cupra for which Seat does not supply its own version, but Cupra will soon be bringing the production version of the Tavascan Concept to market. This was announced by none other than Cupra CEO Wayne Griffiths.

Griffiths, who has also been Seat’s CEO since last year, told English media that development for a production model based on the Tavascan Concept is in full swing. When exactly the production version will enter the market is still unknown. Griffiths points out that the appearance of the production Tavascan will match the exterior of the concept model.

The Tavascan Concept, unveiled in September 2019, was based on the Volkswagen Group’s MEB modular platform designed exclusively for electric vehicles. Under the hood of the show car, there were two 306 hp electric motors that turned the Tavascan into an all-wheel drive car. Under the floor was a 77 kWh battery pack, sufficient for a WLTP run of 450 kilometers. It is possible that the production version will also be available with less powerful electric powertrains.
