Volkswagen does not want you to see that this is the electric Cupra Tavascan

Look closely, is a Volkswagen ID.4 driving here on the Nürburgring? You would think so, but it isn’t. The Volkswagen Group is trying to throw the sand in our eyes, because under the well-known ID.4 body lies the new electric Cupra Tavascan.

A Cupra Tabasco, what is that? The car is called Tavascan, named after a village in the Spanish region of Catalonia, and it debuted in concept form in 2019. Back then it had a power of 306 hp, a 77 kWh battery and a range of about 450 kilometers, which we will probably also see in the production version.

Electric Cupra Tavascan with sporty coupé carriage

Under the skin, the Cupra Tavascan is an Audi Q4 Sportback E-Tron / Skoda Enyaq Coupé iV / Volkswagen ID.5. We deliberately take the coupé models of the electric Volkswagen Group SUVs, because the Tavascan will also get such a sporty-looking body shape.

Cupra wants to become a global brand with Tavascan and Terramar

Cupra wants to become a global brand, it was recently announced. In Spain, the old sports label of Seat unveiled three models: the compact UrbanRebel, the Tavascan and the large Terramar. In the background Cupra gave us a quick glance at the facelifted Leon and Formentor, which get a similar front to the Tavascan and Terramar.

And what about Seat? Will that Spanish brand also get electric cars?

It is still not entirely clear what will happen to Seat in the future. The brand seems a bit left to its own devices. Seat has no electric models and will not get one, but will build a trio of compact EVs for Cupra, Skoda and Volkswagen. Why does Seat itself not have plug-in cars? The CEO has a very lame excuse for that.
