    CUPRA has begun series production of its first 100% electric car, the CUPRA Born, at the Zwickau plant in Germany.

    CEO Wayne Griffiths and the company's Board Members visited Europe's largest electric vehicle plant to mark the start of production of the new model. They were welcomed by Stefan Loth, Chairman of the Board of Management of Volkswagen Saxony and former head of the Martorell plant.

    Production of the CUPRA Born marks the start of a new era for the brand, which at the 2021 Munich International Motor Show (IAA) announced an electric offensive with the ambition to becoming a fully electric brand by 2030.

    "With its emotional design and electric sportiness, the CUPRA Born is the impulse of the company's transformation and the start of CUPRA's electric offensive. Producing our first 100% electric model in Europe's largest electric vehicle factory will provide valuable lessons as we look to build electric vehicles in Martorell from 2025 onwards. Our ambition is to produce more than 500,000 urban electric vehicles per year in Spain for different Group brands," said Griffiths.

    The CUPRA Born will be present at Automobile Barcelona 2021, which kicks off on Thursday 30th September, and marks the start of the model's international launch.

    With 100% CUPRA DNA and an emotional design inspired by Barcelona's El Born neighbourhood, the Born is proof that electric cars can be exciting, and evidence that performance and electrification are a perfect match.

    The CUPRA Born is a key part of CUPRA's international expansion. With this new vehicle, the company aims to increase the CUPRA mix to 20% of the company's overall sales and to reach new international markets, especially in markets with strong demand for electrified vehicles.

    CUPRA will coincide the opening of order books for Born with the launch of its new agency model, a new distribution strategy for a different customer relationship. Customers will also have the option to lease the CUPRA Born through a subscription model.

    The Zwickau plant is the Volkswagen Group's first production plant for 100% electric vehicles and is considered the largest and most efficient electric vehicle factory in Europe. With a daily output of up to 1,400 vehicles, the German plant has an annual production capacity of around 330,000 electric cars. In addition to the CUPRA Born, four other models, the Volkswagen ID3, the Volkswagen ID4, the Audi Q4 e-tron and the Audi Q4 Sportback e-tron, are produced at the plant.

    "It is an honour to produce a car as special as the CUPRA Born in Zwickau. We have a team experienced in the production of electric vehicles, and the Born becomes the fifth model based on the MEB platform to be produced at this plant. In addition, this vehicle will be produced using renewable energies under the net CO2-neutral concept,"
    explained Stefan Loth.

    The company has assigned a team of engineers to Zwickau to monitor the production of the CUPRA Born and to gather experience for the future production of electric vehicles at the Martorell plant.

    The CUPRA Born is the brand's first model to follow a net CO2-neutral concept, whereby energy from renewable sources is used in the supply chain. The model also features bucket seats made from sustainable materials sourced from the Mediterranean Sea.

    By doing this, the new CUPRA Born will contribute to reducing CO2 emissions and meeting European targets. Thanks to the collaboration with SEAQUAL INITIATIVE, the brand will also contribute to the circular economy and to the care of the Mediterranean and its environment.
