Volkswagen owned ‘Seat’ debuted a stylish electric powered SUV conept, the cupra tavasca
A Spanish automaker, Seat, which is owned by Volkswagen, has introduced a new Sport Utility Vehicle or SUV concept under the brand Cupra. The Cupra SUV named as Tavascan is fully electric functional SUV. It features a battery pack with a power of 77kWh which is oriented on the new MEB platform of Volkswagen.
With the Formentor hybrid concept going into manufacturing by the year 2020, Cupra Tavascan is looking to catch its grimy mitts on what it perceives as the subsequent auto market hot-spot: all-electric SUV coupes. To ensure so, the Tavascan lent the MEB platform that supports the ID electric range of Volkswagen, which offers a powerful floor support battery pack of 77 kWh, with rear and front axle electric motors totalling 225 kW producing nearly 302 horsepower. The range of electric SUV is anticipated to be up to 450 km or 280 miles, and it will take less than 6.5 seconds for an electric SUV to go from 0 to 100 km/h or 0 to 62 mph, though these numbers won’t be immensely relevant until Cupra Tavascan starts talking about production.
The design and detailing of the electric SUV is quite impressive. The design team of Cupra has taken the rudimentary outline and curves of the Formentor concept and detailed it up. The suave liquid metal coated shells contrast pleasantly with curvy and nominal carbon accents. The end-to-end taillight and badge ricochet at the front of the electric SUV with a sensual slit amongst the headlights, and a cool carbon tongue portion where a person might imagine a grid on a car is boomed in a really pleasant rear bumper facet. The wheels with Turbine style looks incredible in motion as well as when the SUV is parked.
Inside the cabin of SUV Tavascan, there are comfortable and stylish sculptural 3D leather bucket seats, whereas there is also a broad dashboard which floats crosswise the front of the inner part of the car, which offers both sense of space and focus as well. The driver is at the forefront behind the steering wheel, with the 12.3” digital gadget cluster offering all the information they required, complemented by the infotainment display of 13 inches. The greater screen can move its focus, moving to the passenger when desired, while unified into each of the bucket seats of SUV; smartphone and speakers’ connectivity mean that all passengers might take benefit of the interior space of electric operated SUV.
The Seat debuted the prototype of the electric operated SUV Tavascan at the IAA Frankfurt international motor show which was held this year form 12th of September 2019 to 22nd of September 2019. Thought Seat has not officially announced the start of the vehicle production.
