Music nerds will spend hours talking about how bands have difficult second albums after a big hit.

Car companies like Cupra face the same problem; it had a huge hit with its first electric car, the Born and now it has to try and match the success.
The Tavascan is its comeback, and it is bigger and generally posher that the Born.
Does that mean it’s better?
It actually uses a lot of the same bits underneath as the Born and all sorts of other electric cars including the Skoda Enyaq, Volkswagen ID.4 and 5 and even the new Ford Explorer.

At 4,644mm long, the Tavascan is slightly longer than a Volkswagen ID.4 but marginally shorter than the best-selling Tesla Model Y. Cupra would probably prefer comparisons to posher rivals such as the BMW iX2.
It has a much sportier look than either though, as you’d expect from a Cupra, and has plenty of space of the family.

The Tavascan will be available with two power outputs. The lowest is a single motor rear drive with 286HP. This gives a range of around 341 miles from its 77kWh battery pack.
Drivers wanting more power can plump for a twin motor version that will have 340hp and all-wheel drive. This top version, called the VZ, can reach 62mph in 5.6 seconds and a range of around 321 miles from the same 77kWh battery pack.

The Endurance version with rear wheel drive delivers up to 355 miles of range based on the official WLTP test cycle. While the dual motor, all-wheel drive manages 326 miles.
