Seat's Cupra performance brand aims to enhance the sporty image of its Born full-electric car by offering a version with a higher power output and faster acceleration.
The compact hatchback's top model will have an e-Boost feature to increase the maximum power output to 228 hp.
The Born is underpinned by the Volkswagen Group's MEB all-electric platform, which also underpins the VW brand's ID3 hatchback and ID4 crossover, along with the Skoda Enyaq and Audi Q4 e-tron.
Cupra's version is the first battery-electric vehicle from the brand, which is shifting to sell only full-electric cars.
The Born name refers to the el-Born district in Barcelona.
The Born will go on sale by the end of 2021, Seat and Cupra CEO Wayne Griffiths said on Wednesday during an online presentation.
It is being built at VW Group's EV plant in Zwickau, Germany, which also builds the ID3, ID4 and Q4 e-tron.
The Born will offer better performance than the VW ID3.
It offers electric motors with power outputs of 148 hp (110 kW) or 201 hp (150 kW). The 201-hp version will be available with an e-Boost performance pack to increase peak output to 228 hp (170 kW).
