the Cupra Tavascan could be sportier than the ID.5 and the Enyaq Coupe iV. Being a Cupra, it would have to distinguish itself as a performance car. Expect different suspension tuning and more responsive steering to be among the changes. “We adapt the chassis and suspension and add different brakes and steering,” Wayne Griffiths said while discussing with Autocar how Cupra would make the Volkswagen sister models sporty. Griffiths is the CEO of Seat and Cupra. Driver engagement would be an essential part of the product mix at Cupra.
Further down the road, Cupra could introduce a high-performance variant of the Tavascan, drawing tech from the Cupra e-Racer and Cupra Extreme E Concept. When Autocar asked Griffiths about the future high-performance EVs, he said that Cupra has a link with motorsport. With this connection, it’s possible that the “spice” for high-performance EVs “could come from that.”
