The Cupra Born has had its price reduced by £2,350 across the range to help boost its appeal to UK drivers.

The trim levels have been simplified and the entry-level Born now starts from £34,125 and rises to £41,385 for the top-of-the-line V3 77kWh e-Boost.

Factory orders and orders from stock mean that the price reduction and simpler model line-up make the Cupra Born a more attractive proposition against its twin sister, the Volkswagen ID-3 and other electric hatchbacks like the Nissan Leaf.
