With overboost, the CUPRA BORN 58 e-BOOST has a maximum power of 170 KW (231 hp / 204 bhp). Without overboost, it is 150 KW (204 hp / 228 bhp). The torque is 310 nm with overboost and 310 without overboost. It performs the 0-100km/h sprint (0-62mph) in 6,6 seconds with overboost and 7,3 seconds without overboost. The top speed is 160 km/h.
Battery, range, and charging
The battery has a gross capacity of 62kWh and a net capacity of 58kWh, meaning you have a 4kWh buffer for protection. (6,5%).
The WLTP range varies from 420 to 362 km (261-225 mi), depending on car options. Bigger wheels are an example of an equipment option that increases consumption and reduces the electric range. The consumption is between 13.8kWh/100km for the basic version and 16.0kWh/100km for the top trim version for the WLTP standard test. For more details about the range, see real-world data and range listing on this model’s range and consumption page.
The maximum DC charging speed is 120kW. A full charge from 0 - 100% would take 63 minutes, while a more common scenario of 10-80% would take 34 minutes. If you assume you lose 5 minutes driving per charge stop in addition to the charge time, the optimum charge area is from 0% to 43%, resulting in an actual charge speed, including time loss, of 77kW. Each charge session would take 19 minutes and 28 seconds.
For the theoretical 1000km challenge, starting with a full battery and driving at 120km/h (75 mph), assuming optimal driving conditions and consumption of 22kWh/100km, 1000km will take 10 hours and 26 minutes. This trip will require seven charge session(s) charging from 0% to 40%. The total time lost for charging up the battery will be 127 minutes.
For level 1 and level 2 AC charging, the onboard charger supports up to 11 KW charging. As a result, you can charge the battery 0-100% from home in about 5 hours and 16 minutes.
The location of the charge port is on the right rear side. This location makes it easy to use charge stations where you need to back up into the charger. The connector types vary between the different markets. This model uses CCS Combo 1 for North America and for Europe, CCS Combo 2. See full specifications for all markets.
