CUPRA takes its impulse further with the new CUPRA Born VZ

  • CUPRA Born VZ boosts performance, delivering 240kW/545Nm, reaching 100km/h in just 5.7 seconds and increasing Vmax to 200km/h
  • Sportier interior with new CUP Bucket seats as standard, as well as regenerative paddle shifts on the steering wheel
  • Dynamic behaviour of the car is enhanced thanks to improved braking feeling, more robust suspension, and more responsive steering and pedal behaviour
  • The exterior design is enriched with two new 20” alloy wheels, including one forged with performance tyres, the standout VZ logo on the rear as well as new colours

 

The CUPRA Born is the first all-electric model from the brand and the perfect match between electrification and performance.

CUPRA takes this impulse further with the CUPRA Born VZ – the latest addition to the vehicle line-up from CUPRA – a new and more powerful version to inspire the world from Barcelona.

VZ stands for Veloz in Spanish, meaning fast, a seamless way to describe the brand’s latest vehicle. The CUPRA Born VZ delivers 240kW of power and 545Nm of torque, applied to the road through its improved suspension setting geometry, sports-tuned steering, and improved braking feel. These aspects combine to give it the ultimate performance in the CUPRA Born line-up and making it one of the most dynamic cars in its segment.

“The CUPRA Born was a milestone for the brand when we launched the model in 2021 as our first 100% electric vehicle. And it’s delivered exceptionally, with 45,300 units sold last year, an increase of 44.4% compared to the year before.” said Wayne Griffiths, CEO of CUPRA. “With the CUPRA Born VZ, we will bring even more performance to this model, proving once again that electrification and performance are a perfect match.”

Powertrain and chassis

The CUPRA Born VZ takes the advanced powertrain technology of the CUPRA Born and turns the dial up: the all-electric system now delivers 240kW of power – a 40% increase over the e-Boost version. Torque is also upped to a staggering 545Nm – 75% more than any other Born version. It means the CUPRA Born VZ can reach 100km/h from a standing start in just 5.7 seconds - one second faster than the e-Boost version. Top speed is also increased and now limited to 200km/h - 40km/h more than the e-Boost version.

The CUPRA Born VZ also brings improvements to the chassis to make sure its dynamics match the outright numbers.

New DCC Sport suspension, responsive steering behaviour and improved brake pedal feeling, as well as a robust rear brake. Altogether to create a superior dynamic performance.

At the rear of the CUPRA Born VZ new dampers and springs combine with the front’s updated damper valve settings and spring design, with updated anti-roll bars to create the DCC Sport suspension that delivers better vehicle body control and is able to soak up and smooth out the tarmac.

The CUPRA Born VZ’s steering package is upgraded with new hardware and software to make it sportier.

Dynamic improvements to the vehicle’s braking technology gives the VZ a stiffer, more robust brake feel, increasing its directness and reducing softness compared to standard variants of the CUPRA Born.

But performance isn’t achieved by sacrificing efficiency, and the CUPRA Born VZ is able to travel up to 570km*. The battery pack has been improved and now offers 79kWh of net capacity (+2kWh). And the technology remains practical; it can be recharged at home using an 11kW AC system or at a DC 170kW fast-charging point, meaning a fast charge from 10 to 80% would just take within 30 minutes*.

Design

EXTERIOR DESIGN

The CUPRA Born VZ’s exterior design is enhanced with two new colour choices. Exclusively for the CUPRA Born VZ is special Dark Forest, which is also joined by a Midnight Black option.

Aesthetics meets performance with the introduction of two new 20” alloy wheels, with different technologies like 3D copper inserts or forged technology, to emphasize its sporty spirit. Wider, high-performance tyres help deliver the CUPRA Born VZ’s power and torque to the road through its rear wheels. The car also comes with wider wheels (8J20’’) instead of the current CUPRA Born version (7.5J19’’ and 7.5J20’’).

The finishing measure for the latest iteration of the brand’s 100% electric vehicle is the VZ logo in dark chrome housed on the vehicle’s boot, as well as the CUPRA lettering in dark chrome colour. 

 

INTERIOR DESIGN

Inside the CUPRA Born VZ continues its emotional design. Standard CUP Bucket seats are an exclusive choice only found in this version of the CUPRA Born, but shared with the CUPRA Formentor VZ5 and CUPRA Leon VZ CUP, with a lower seating feeling to deliver a more ergonomic, sporty seating position. In the case of the CUPRA Born VZ, the CUP Bucket seats are made from upcycled SEAQUAL® YARN textile as well as DINAMICA with 73% recycled polyester.

In the rear of the vehicle thanks to improvements to the chassis setup, the CUPRA Born VZ can offer both five seat comfort and the vivacity of a sunroof in the same package.

The CUPRA Born VZ also incorporates regenerative paddle shifts on the steering wheel, allowing to choose between 3 different levels of energy recuperation. When the accelerator is released the motor acts as a generator to feed energy back into the battery pushing energy back into the powertrain and reducing wear and tear on the brakes.

For greater control of the regenerative characteristics, drivers can use the paddle shifters to cycle through the three different levels while in ‘D’ mode, helping to match their driving style. Simply use the paddles to select how much deceleration you need.

Technology

The CUPRA Born VZ moves digitalisation forward. It benefits from a new and larger floating 12.9” infotainment system (+0.9’’ vs the current CUPRA Born), mixing the benefits of touchscreen inputs with a new retro illuminated touch bar to adjust interior climate and volume.

The CUPRA Born VZ integrates a new optional high-fidelity 10-speaker audio sound system developed in collaboration with premium audio firm Sennheiser. The high-powered 425-watt system immerses the driver and the passengers in a unique sound experience, while also adding to the interior finish with its metallic grille finished. It’s an audio technology that incorporates Sennheiser's AMBEO Concerto software, able to distil fundamental components of music, including different instruments and room information, redistributing them throughout the car.

The interior is illuminated with Smart Light technology as standard. Don’t be confused, this isn’t ambient lighting, but a new dimension in human-machine communication.

Horizontal full-LEDs wrap around the width of the dashboard to enhance specific features, giving warnings and indications to the driver and other occupants. Information including state of charge, onboard driver’s assistant systems (Front Assist, ACC and C2X danger warning); infotainment functions (voice control, phone call, navigation system), intelligent parking assist as well as locking and unlocking and entry and exit. These visual cues add another level of awareness, making the CUPRA Born VZ safer and smarter.

New Advanced Driver Assistance Systems

The brand’s dedication to safety and convenience is instantly recognisable from the large range of upgraded and new advanced driver assistance systems available, integrated to aid and support the driver no matter the situation.

Travel Assist 2.6 combines the Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Lane Assist (guides you in the centre of the lane) to improve the driving experience of the CUPRA Born VZ, but this new version includes improvements when driving on poorly marked roads, thanks to the information received from the cloud. It also offers the lane change support when you drive in highways.

Parking is now incredibly easy; the new Remote Park Assist allows the driver to finish parking manoeuvre with their smartphone, while Trained Parking Assist allows the vehicle to learn how to park in regular spots by storing the characteristics and trajectory in a map. And for everyday parking no matter the location, Top View Camera gives drivers a 360º view of the vehicle and its environment.

The safety and convenience technology suite also includes Side Assist to protect from vehicles in the blind spot or that are fast approaching, Front Light Assist to automatically control headlight functionality, Dynamic Road Sign Display to interpret traffic signs, Exit Warning for obstacles while exiting when parked.

Launch

CUPRA is determined to balance the need for mobility with a responsibility for the environment. It’s why the CUPRA Born was first model to be delivered with a net CO2 neutral concept, using energy from renewable sources in the supply chain and remaining emissions offset by environmental and project investments certified to the highest standards. It’s an approach continued with the CUPRA Born VZ.

The CUPRA Born VZ will be launched in the third quarter of 2024.

C'è qualquadra che non cosa con questi cerchi direzionali nelle due foto... :pen: Nella prima foto o l'anteriore o il posteriore sono stati photoshoppati sbagliati.

La teoria è quando si conosce il funzionamento di qualcosa ma quel qualcosa non funziona.

La pratica è quando tutto funziona ma non si sa come.

Spesso si finisce con il coniugare la teoria con la pratica: non funziona niente e non si sa il perché.

Esatto, si nota anche dal riflesso sul pavimento che non corrisponde (nella ruote posteriore)

Primo messaggio aggiornato.

Certo che potevano correggerla la foto prima di pubblicarla ed invece no l'hanno pure messa come immagine di copertina. 🤦‍♂️

In realtà hanno fatto un casino completo con quei cerchi, oltre alla prima foto che li ha orientati in modo inverso tra anteriore e posteriore, l'orientamento cambia anche tra foto statiche ed imagini in movimento dove nelle prime le "punte" delle razze guardano verso il posteriore mentre nelle immagini in movimento le "punte" guardano verso il frontale. 

Anche nel video c'è lo stesso problema, in pratica sul lato destro della vettura i cerchi hanno le razze che "guardano" verso il frontale mentre sul lato sinistro "guardano" verso il posteriore.

Il video credo sia l'unico corretto in quanto essendo il cerchio unico è normale che su un lato puntino dietro e a sinistra avanti

Leggermente meglio dell'omologa VW come stile, la parentela resta comunque molto visibile; riflettevo però che dal vivo non ne ho mai vista una :-/


Per le immagini di presentazione, semi-citando un altro topic che non ricordo, posso dire "mi fa piacere che i fotoscioppatori indiani abbiano allargato la clientela!"
