CUPRA and SEAT President, Wayne Griffiths commented: “The CUPRA Formentor e-HYBRID represents the essence of the brand and will be key to doubling sales volume compared to 2020. Our goal is for the Formentor to represent 50% of CUPRA sales in 2021, half of which will be plug-in hybrid versions.
“Electric hybrid sales in Europe amounted to 11.9% of total sales in 2020, up from 5.7% in 2019. The market will continue to grow and enable the transition to electrification.”
With a range of petrol engines, including two plug-in hybrids, the CUPRA Formentor is the brand’s entry into the SUV coupe, which is set to double its market share in Europe in the next five years. This high-performance crossover, which is shortlisted as a finalist for the 2021 European Car of the Year awards, combines the brand’s unique DNA with cutting-edge technology, a captivating exterior design and high-quality interior detailing.
