Cupra opens order book for Leon e-Hybrid hot hatch

6

Performance brand Cupra has opened the order book for its Leon plug-in hybrid hatchback and estate, based on the Seat model.

The Leon e-Hybrid VZ2 245PS, with 1.4-litre TSI engine, 85PS electric motor and 13.1kWh battery pack, will be priced from £34,495.

It offers official combined fuel economy of up to 217.3mpg and CO2 emissions from 30g/km.

The car, which has a 0-62mph time of 6.7 seconds, has an electric-only range of 32 miles, and the battery can be fully charged in three hours 42 minutes from an 3.6kW charger, or five hours 48 minutes from a 230V domestic socket.

The eHybrid always starts in all-electric mode (when the battery is sufficiently charged) and the drive switches to hybrid mode if the state of charge of the battery drops below a certain level or if the speed rises above 81mph.

In hybrid mode, the driver can pre-define a saved state of charge of the battery, only using the saved charge when within a low-emissions zone.

It will be available as both a five-door hatchback and an estate, in three trim levels VZ2, VZ3 and First Edition.

VZ2 offers 19-inch alloy wheels, racing bucket seats, and Cupra sports pedals.

It also features a digital cockpit with Full Link integration (including wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto), 10-inch Media System Plus with smart navigation, ambient and wraparound lighting and a seven-speaker audio system.

VZ3 adds Nappa leather bucket seats, heated steering wheel and wireless smartphone charging.

First Edition adds an array of safety technology incuding dynamic road sign assist display, high beam assist, predictive and adaptive cruise control, side and exit assist, and lange change assist.
