The CUPRA Born has taken home one of the most coveted awards at the What Car? Awards 2022 after it was named Best Small Electric Car of the Year.

The electric car category win is a first for CUPRA, as Born, which is available to order now, is the brand’s first all-electric car with first deliveries in Spring 2022.

Designed and developed in Barcelona, CUPRA’s EV came out on top against some noteworthy competition in a year where electric vehicles have thrived and become more popular than ever.

Born was recognised for its impressive handling characteristics, high quality interior and dynamic powertrain.

Steve Huntingford, Editor at What Car? commented, “Choosing a CUPRA typically means a big focus on driver appeal, and the Born absolutely delivers, because it feels more eager to turn into bends than rivals. Despite this, though, the ride is far from harsh and road noise is kept to a minimum, while the interior is smartly finished and impressively spacious. So, the Born proves that turning your back on petrol doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice fun, but it's also a fantastic all-rounder.”

CUPRA Born’s range of technology is designed to enhance the safety and comfort of the driver and passengers. Features include full LED exterior lighting, a 12-inch infotainment system, Predictive Adaptive Cruise Control, augmented reality head-up display, Dynamic Chassis Control and dynamic road sign display.

CUPRA also secured the Best Coupe SUV category with the Formentor. The SUV was the first model to be designed and developed exclusively as a CUPRA after the launch of the brand in 2018.
