CUPRA, the performance sub-brand to Volkswagen Group's Spanish unit SEAT, used the Frankfurt International Motor Show for the debut of their new concept, one powered by electricity!
CUPRA revealed the TAVASCAN concept at the Motor show; a high-performance battery-electric car combining coupe-like proportions with the extra ground clearance of an SUV.
The Tavascan has a pair of electric motors, one at each axle, and provides a combined 306bhp, with 0-62mph in just 6.5 seconds. Its 77-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery provides enough juice for a 250 mile range.
At the Motor Show, CUPRA explained this concept represents a vision of the brand's future and did not confirm whether or not this model would make it to production. They did, however, confirm plans for three performance-orientated plug-in hybrids, one of which will be a production version of the Formentor SUV Concept that was unveiled earlier this year! The Formentor is due 2020.
The brand also released a sneak peak of the new CUPRA ATECA. Watch the full model line-up, here:
