Production of the new CUPRA Formentor e-HYBRID has started and order books are now open, with prices starting from £38,625.
Since its launch last year, the Formentor has been a huge success and has even been shortlisted for the European Car of the Year 2021 title. Now, CUPRA’s first bespoke model is available with two plug-in hybrid powertrain options, following in the same tracks as the CUPRA Leon e-HYBRID, and will be joined later this year by the brand’s first-ever, all-electric model, the CUPRA El-Born.
CUPRA and SEAT President, Wayne Griffiths, commented: “The CUPRA Formentor e-HYBRID represents the essence of the brand and will be key to doubling sales volume compared to 2020. Our goal is for the Formentor to represent 50% of CUPRA sales in 2021, half of which will be plug-in hybrid versions. Electric hybrid sales in Europe amounted to 11.9% of total sales in 2020, up from 5.7% in 2019. The market will continue to grow and enable the transition to electrification.”
Customers will have two trim levels to choose from - VZ1 or VZ2 trim – both of which come with innovative technology and superb design features as standard. The VZ1 model will deliver an all-electric range of up to 34 miles, while the VZ2 will offer approximately 32 miles. Both models will only take 3 and half hours to reach full charge, making it convenient for any lifestyle.
Although emissions have been reduced, performance has not been compromised and the new Formentor e-HYBRID will still live up to CUPRA standards. The combination of the 1.4-litre petrol engine, 85kW electric motor and 13kWh battery means the Formentor e-HYBRID is capable of producing a maximum torque of 400Nm and can reach 0-62mph in 7.0 seconds, with a top speed of 130mph.
Suitable for a range of lifestyles, the CUPRA Formentor e-HYBRID ticks all the boxes for being a great car. It’s spacious; jam-packed with innovative technology; delivers a first-class performance on every journey; and will now help drivers reduce their emissions and improve air quality.
