2025 Cupra Born VZ

2025 Cupra Born VZ

In May 2021, Cupra presented a small family battery electric compact car, the Cupra Born. Three years later, the automobile brand announces a new, more powerful version of this model called the Cupra Born VZ.

Although last year VW temporarily suspended production of the Born model at its plants in Zwickau and Dresden, the Cupra still managed to sell 45,300 units, which is an increase of almost 45 percent compared to 2022.

The new Cupra Born VZ will be offered in two body colors: Dark Forest and Midnight Black. It will be based on the Volkswagen Group MEB platform like the current model, and in addition to its standard equipment, the Born VZ will be equipped with Dark Chrome details and 20″ wheels, revised steering, better braking system and sports suspension.

Inside, the sports seats from the Formentor VZ5 and Leon VZ models are covered in eco-leather, which also covers the door panels, center console and armrests. There is also a centrally placed 12.9-inch display, a Sennheiser audio system with 10 speakers and a power of 425 W (optional).

When it comes to the powertrain, the Born VZ will be powered by an electric motor with 326 hp (243 kW) and 402 lb-ft (545 Nm) of torque, which is enough to push the car from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5 ,7 seconds with a top speed of 200 km/h (124 mph). Instead of the 77 kWh battery that the current model has, the Born VZ will be equipped with a 79 kWh battery that will provide a range of 570 kilometers. The battery can be charged at fast chargers up to 170 kW.

The new Cupra Born VZ should arrive on the market in the second half of 2024, while the first deliveries can be expected at the end of the year.
