Cupra Born wins accelerated e-Boost models from £37,445 Car News

The Cupra Born gained two new e-Boost variants with the engine boosted to 228hp.

New additions to the Born model range mean there are three combinations of battery capacity and horsepower available to order for the electric hot sedan.

The cheaper Born e-Boost has a 58kWh battery for a range of 264 miles and can do the 0-62mph sprint in 6.6 seconds. It costs from £37,445.

The most expensive variant has a 77kWh battery for a range of 340 miles and a 0-62mph time of 7.0 seconds. It costs from £41,975.

Both models are capable of charging at rates up to 135 kW. Cupra says this will charge the 77kWh battery from 5-80% in 36 minutes.

The e-Boost powertrain can be selected from the mid-size V2 trim level, which adds 19-inch wheels, an augmented reality head-up display, privacy glass and heated front seats.

The V3 version is also available, with larger 20-inch wheels, 12-way electronically adjustable bucket seats and a massage function.

Standard features on both models include all-LED exterior lighting, a 5.3-inch digital instrument display, Dynamic Chassis Control and a 12-inch infotainment touchscreen.

The e-Boost models join the standard Born, which is priced at £34,715 with a 201hp motor and 58kWh battery.

The Born is still missing the UK government’s £1,500 purchase grant, with the threshold set at £32,500.
