The new Cupra Formentor e-VZ 1.4 e-HYBRID DSG with 245 hp is the brand’s first sporty and electric SUV. Its plug-in hybrid system allows you to enjoy efficient and ecological driving by combining the electric motor and the gasoline motor. With all the benefits of a sports car and the advantages of an eco, it is already one of the finalist candidates for Best Car of the Year 2021. The Cupra Formentor has batteries of 13 kWh capacity and high autonomy. In 100% electric mode, the Formentor has a range of up to 55 kilometers, which allows it to benefit from the DGT’s ZERO emissions environmental label.
Its propulsion system has a 1.4 TSI four-cylinder petrol engine block that offers 150 hp of power while the electric motor reaches 115 hp. Working together, it develops a maximum power of 245 hp. The Formentor reaches a top speed of 210 km / h and accelerates from 0 to 100 in just 7 seconds. Eco advantages Formentor was born with an eco character. Its combined consumption in hybrid mode is only between 1.4 and 1.6 l / 100km. And its weighted CO2 emissions of between 31 and 35 g / km exempt you from paying road tax. Its electric battery can be recharged in five hours using the Mode 2 charging cable (domestic or Schuko) that is included as standard, or in 3.33 hours in a Wallbox type charger.
In terms of design and standard equipment, the Formentor features 18-inch alloy wheels, full LED headlights, electric heated door mirrors, darkened rear windows, and the detail of the welcome light that projects the Cupra logo on the ground. Also, driving assistants guarantee maximum safety involuntary lane change, emergency assistant, traffic sign recognition, and emergency braking system for pedestrians and cyclists.
The Formentor VZ e-HYBRID is the second model with plug-in hybrid technology from the firm, after the Cupra León. The SEAT sports sub-brand created in 2018 thus expands its offer with a new model that will be manufactured at its facilities in Martorell. The VZ e-HYBRID version is available for 45,350 euros without discounts.
