Initially, all versions of the Born will have a 58kWh battery and 201hp power output. A smaller-battery 45kWh version, producing 148hp, will follow soon afterwards.

Cupra also plans to release a 58kWh Born with 227hp, plus a long-range 77kWh e-Boost model – both due later in 2022.

The 58kWh launch car offers an official range of 263 miles, with the ability to charge from five to 80 percent in 35 minutes using a 120kW charger.

Beginning with the £33,735 V1 trim level, all Borns will feature LED headlights, a rear-view camera and a digital dashboard with a 12.3-inch multimedia screen.

Moving up to the V2 model takes the price to £34,190. This adds 19-inch wheels (in place of the V1’s 18-inch rims), tinted rear windows, an augmented reality head-up display and heated front seats.

Topping the Cupra Born range at launch is the V3 version. A price of £37,375 gets you 20-inch alloys and Granite Grey Dinamica front seats. The latter are heated, and come with 12-way electric adjustment and a massage function.

Buyers have the choice of six exterior paint colours, with V1 and V2 models featuring sustainable ‘Seaqual’ upholstery.
