As with other models on the MEB platform, it would be possible to offer the Tavascan with a range of battery sizes, and with a range of powertrain outputs. But given Cupra's performance focus, it is likely the model will only be offered with the more powerful versions of the system. The production Cupra Tavascan may come with three battery options, a 52 kWh unit consisting of eight cell modules, a 58 kWh unit consisting of nine cell modules, and a 77 kWh unit containing twelve cell modules.

Powertrain choices could include various single motor and dual-motor options. The single motors could offer 109-150 kW of power and 220-310 Nm of torque. The dual motors could generate 195-225 kW of combined power and 460 Nm of combined torque. As for charging power, expect at least 200 kW.

The new MEB platform includes a range of other advantages including more power and longer range. In addition to a longer range, the updated MEB platform will enable DC fast-charging at a higher rate of more than 200 kW (current MEB platform limit: 170 kW). Acceleration will also be better, with dual-motor AWD configurations providing 0-62 mph sprint in approximately 5.5 seconds, an update that would be welcomed with open arms by the Cupra bosses.
