The Cupra Tavascan, set to launch in 2024, was recently seen testing alongside Audi E-Tron prototypes during the winter season. Although its body frame was concealed with a line-obscuring livery, this vehicle marks the beginning of production for Volkswagen’s MEB platform.
Cupra have been making waves in the automotive industry, with their daring futuristic body lines and high end engine performance, coupling this with EV or Hybrid tech makes the new Cupra range a formidable foe to its competitors.The Tavascan, in particular, is undergoing rigorous testing in a variety of climates and road conditions around the world before its launch date. This includes cold weather trials being conducted on frozen lakes in Sweden, to hot desert tests in South Africa and even rainforest humidity tests in Indonesia.

By pushing the boundaries of the platform, Cupra ensures that its customers receive a premium product. The Tavascan will be powered by an all-electric powertrain combining up to 300kW of horsepower, while offering a range of over 500km – thanks in part to Volkswagen’s next-generation battery technology. It also benefits from adaptive technologies such as automated driving features, advanced vehicle control systems and a range of connectivity options.
The Tavascan will be the first in a line of electric vehicles to be produced by Cupra within the next four years, with an array of other cars set to join it before 2025. This includes an all-new coupe and SUV model that will be powered by the same MEB platform, as well as a new range of plug-in hybrids. Cupra are looking to expand and diversify their lineup in order to meet the changing needs of customers across Europe and worldwide.
With the Tavascan now entering its final stages of development before launch, it marks an exciting era for both Cupra and Volkswagen. The future of electric vehicles has never looked brighter. The world awaits the release of the Cupra Tavascan in 2024, signifying a new dawn for premium electric vehicle technology. Who knows what other surprises this innovative platform will bring? Only time will tell!
It’s pretty clear that Cupra’s upcoming electric car will draw inspiration from the concept they showed off at the Geneva Motor Show back in 2019. This new model seems to have a more angular design compared to the original concept, and they’ve toned down the front end a bit. However, it’s still easily recognizable as part of the Cupra family with its bold design elements.
The electric vehicle sports a bold and modern look that aims to stand out from traditional combustion engine cars. Its design has been carefully sculpted to maximize aerodynamic efficiency, and the rear end features an angled screen and a unique bumper shape.
Cupra hasn’t released any official details about the performance or engine specifications for the production version of the Tavascan just yet. However, the concept version boasted a powerful electric powertrain with dual motors, delivering around 302 horsepower, which is comparable to Volkswagen’s ID 5 GTX and Skoda Enyaq vRS. It also came with a 77-kilowatt-hour battery, providing an impressive range of approximately 280 miles on a single charge.
The Tavascan is expected to offer different battery sizes and power outputs, reflecting Cupra’s commitment to performance. It’s set to launch in 2024 after the Cupra Born hatch, and it’s a crucial car for the Spanish brand as they aim to double their sales from 2020 by that year.
Joining the lineup alongside the new UrbanRebel supermini, Terramar hybrid SUV, and existing Cupra Formentor models, the Born and Tavascan will soon be available. Autocar recently revealed that these cars are being produced at the Anhui factory by JAC Motors in partnership with VW.
I for one a extremely excited for the full reveal of these motors! so far the cupra range has not dissapointed and I’m sure the Tavascan will be no different. With all the advancements Cupra has made in battery and electric motor technology, coupled with its innovative design, this car has the potential to become a game changer for premium electric vehicles.
The world anxiously awaits the arrival of Cupra’s first full-electric model; a model that is sure to impress – the Tavascan.
