Home and Destination Charging (0 -> 100%)

It's feasible to charge through a standard wall outlet or a dedicated charging station. Public charging exclusively utilizes charging stations. The speed at which the electric vehicle (EV) charges is determined by the charging station (Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment, EVSE) and the EV's maximum charging capability. The table below outlines all available charging methods for the CUPRA Born 170 kW – 77 kWh, detailing the speed of charging the battery from empty to full for each method.


The approach to charging an EV in Europe varies from one country to another. Some countries in Europe predominantly rely on 1-phase electrical connections to the grid, whereas others mainly utilize 3-phase connections. The table below presents all the potential charging methods for the CUPRA Born 170 kW – 77 kWh, noting that the availability of certain charging modes may be limited in specific countries.

Type 2 (Mennekes – IEC 62196)
Charging Point Max. Power Power Time Rate
Wall Plug (2.3 kW) 230V / 1x10A 2.3 kW 39h30m 11 km/h
1-phase 16A (3.7 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW 24h30m 18 km/h
1-phase 32A (7.4 kW) 230V / 1x32A 7.4 kW 12h15m 37 km/h
3-phase 16A (11 kW) 400V / 3x16A 11 kW 8h15m 55 km/h
3-phase 32A (22 kW) 400V / 3x16A 11 kW † 8h15m 55 km/h

† = Limited by on-board charger, vehicle cannot charge faster.

Fast Charging (10 -> 80%)

Rapid charging facilitates extended trips by maximizing the amount of range added in the minimal amount of time. The charging efficiency significantly drops after the battery reaches an 80% state of charge, making it uncommon for a rapid charge to go beyond this threshold. The rate at which an EV rapidly charges depends on both the capabilities of the charging station used and the maximum charging power the EV is designed to accept. Below is a detailed table outlining the specifics for rapidly charging the CUPRA Born 170 kW – 77 kWh, including:

  • Max. Power: The highest power output available from the charging station.
  • Avg. Power: The average power output from the charging station during a charging session from 10% to 80%.
  • Time: The duration required to charge the battery from 10% to 80%.
  • Rate: The average rate of charging during a session from 10% to 80%.
Combined Charging System (CCS Combo 2)
Charging Point Max. Power Avg. Power Time Rate
CCS (50 kW DC) 49 kW † 47 kW † 72 min 260 km/h
CCS (150 kW DC) 150 kW 110 kW † 31 min 610 km/h
CCS (300 kW DC) 175 kW † 115 kW † 30 min 630 km/h

† = Constrained by the vehicle's charging capacity.

Autocharge: enables automatic start of a charging session at compatible CCS charging stations.

Plug & Charge: facilitates automatic commencement of a charging session at CCS charging stations that support it, following the ISO 15118 standard.

The real charging speeds may vary from the figures provided, influenced by external conditions such as ambient temperature, battery condition, and driving habits.
