Cupra lowers prices: Born considerably cheaper than Volkswagen ID.3

December 21, 2023

Born Impulse

Whereas at Volkswagen you have to pay 42,690 euros for an entry-level ID.3, at Cupra you will now pay 36,940 euros for technically the same model. Quite a price difference, although we should note that the ID.3 has since received an interim facelift, the Born not yet. For that money, you get the keys to the Born Impulse, which features a 204-power electric motor and 58 kWh battery pack, good for a range of up to 425 kilometers. Since the SEPP subsidy pot is far from empty – and, moreover, full again from 2024 – individuals can benefit from a 2,950 euro subsidy, making the Born drivable from as little as 33,990 euros.

Extra power

All Born models – except the entry-level model we described above – now come standard with the extra powerful 231-hp electric motor. That electric motor comes standard with the 58 kWh battery pack, which is good for a range of up to 421 kilometers. The Born Business and Born Performance come optional with the 77 kWh battery pack, for a range of up to 550 kilometers.
