Is the Cupra Born worth waiting for?

Cupra el-Born (2021) front view

if you want an electric hot hatch, and the MINI Electric isn't large enough for you, then step this way. Although it's an ID.3 in a sharp suit, it appears to have enough sporting character of its own to appeal to those who want something sporty, practical and all-electric.

Cupra says: 'We have created a new sporty and dynamic design and reengineering the technological content. The Born is the living proof that performance and electrification are a great match.'

It's early days, and this is our first view of the Born, which goes on sale in later in 2021. We’ll find out more in the coming weeks and months.
