Electric Cupra concept heading for Frankfurt Motor Show

An all-electric Cupra concept has been teased, and is set to be revealed in Frankfurt in September

Cupra, the performance brand spun-off from parent company SEAT, has teased an all-electric concept that’s set to be revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.

No details have been confirmed at this stage, other than that the four-door crossover will make use of an electric powertrain.

The single teaser image released so far gives a glimpse of the concept’s rear and profile: the taillight spans the width of the tailgate and incorporates the Cupra logo.

Meanwhile, the roofline of the vehicle provides what Cupra describes as “the presence of an SUV and the sleekness of a sports coupe.”

The carmaker revealed the concept for the first time in a teaser video last week. Although it gave little away, LED headlights could be made out at the front, with an illuminated Cupra logo visible on the bumper’s leading edge.

Cupra says the front end features vents to help boost range, while a diffuser at the rear also helps with aerodynamics.

It’s highly likely that Cupra’s concept will be built on Volkswagen Group’s MEB electric-vehicle platform, which is set to underpin everything from the forthcoming VW ID.3 hatchback to the SEAT el-Born hatch.

It’ll also form the basis of the Skoda Vision iV, which will be offered in both coupe and SUV forms when it goes on sale in 2021.
