Cupra has given the public a glimpse into its future today, showing us the Terramar SUV for the first time The hybrid SUV will be built in Hungary alongside the Audi Q3.
Although details are scarce, the model will arrive in 2024 and its lineup will include both internal combustion (possibly light-hybrid) and plug-in hybrid models. The latter will include more options and a wider range that it could offer earlier, Capra said, promising that the Terramar will have a pure electric range of about 62 miles (100 km).
The brand further promises that its e-hybrid range will focus on performance and “contemporary sports”, whatever that means.

The crossover will be about 4,500 mm (177 inches) long, much like the Audi Q3. Positioned as a compact SUV, it has to compete with the likes of Hyundai Tucson and it will last longer than Cupra Ateca or Formentor.
Like the Q3, the Terramar will be based on a modified version of the MQB platform that is the basis for the Volkswagen Group’s next-generation PHEV. Kapra has confirmed that this will be the last gas or diesel powered car.
“Our new sporty hybrid SUV combines the bold proportions with a long striking bonnet, while the shark nose means groundbreaking resistance and determination to win,” said George Diaz, Capra’s design director. “Thinking about how the driver will feel, we provide a unique experience with the latest technology, thanks to the driver-oriented interior concept.”
The SUV will join Tavascan and UrbanRebel in the Capra lineup by 2025, one of the trio vehicles featuring the brand at an event in Terramer, Sitges today.
