Cupra has published the first pictures and details of the upcoming el-Born. This is the first electric hot hatch developed by the company, and also the first hot hatch based on the MEB Volkswagen Group special platform.

The new Cupra el-Born borrows the cues from the Seat el-Born hatchback but it has some more extreme body accessories. Until now, the Spanish performance division did not disclose all the technical details.
