Cupra recently revealed a production version of the all-electric Tavascan that shares the platform with the Volkswagen ID.4 and Skoda Enyaq iV. Expected to debut in 2024, the production version of the Tavascan takes some design elements from UrbanRebel.
The specifications of the Tavascan have not been announced by Cupra, but it is suspected that the Tavascan will use the same powertrain as the Volkswagen ID.4 GTX. The ID.4 engine itself is capable of spewing power up to 295 bhp and is powered by a 77 kWh battery that has a range of up to 300 miles. This machine is also capable of going from 0-62 mph in just six seconds.
If carrying the MEB platform from VW at this time, it is likely that the Tavascan will experience a slight reduction in the power sector. However, Volkswagen has confirmed an upgrade to the MEB platform, and it is planned to be completed in 2024, the same year the Tavascan debuts. This upgraded platform promises a range of up to 435 miles.
The exterior design closely aligns with the concept showcased last year, with a unique black fascia on the front and an element that the cupra calls “helmet style daylight opening”.
The cabin itself gets a strong influence from the 2019 concept and is slightly different from other Cupra SUVs that carry the MEB platform. The front cabin looks like a floating bridge that rises from the center console and flows into the dashboard. The Cupra’s signature copper color is also used in the interior trim, while a large center touchscreen and a compact digital instrument panel are standard for cars running on the MEB platform.
