Hybrid performance to the sea: CUPRA and De Antonio Yachts unveil the new D28 Formentor e-HYBRID

Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

  • CUPRA and #deantonioyachts take the next step in their collaboration, adding electrification to the D28 Formentor yacht
  • The #d28formentorehybrid uses hybrid technology to deliver emissions free navigation in restricted waters
  • A new colour, Graphene Grey, adds a new character to the high-performance yacht’s design

CUPRA is broadening its collaboration with #deantonioyachts with the unveiling of the #d28formentorehybrid, its first electrified #yacht, reinforcing its commitment to sustainability and performance. 

The initial collaboration in 2020 between #cupra and the Barcelona-based, high-performance designer #yacht firm delivered a 400PS showboat capable of reaching a top speed of 40 knots. The boat’s exterior design stood out with straight lines, dynamic character, and unconventional colours. The exterior design had a distinctive Petrol Blue hull, several accents in black and carbon fibre along with a number of distinguishing elements.

We love bringing our performance to other territories. De Antonio is the perfect partner for being the unconventional challenger in a completely different environment on the sea. Now, we are taking that extra step with a hybrid version of the D28 Formentor which will be officially presented to the public at the beginning of 2023,” said Antonino Labate, Global Director of Strategy, Business Development & Operations at #cupra.

The two brands worked together on the design of the #deantonioyachts D28 Formentor, a high-performance #yacht inspired by the first model uniquely designed and developed for the brand, the #cupra Formentor. And now the collaboration adds electrification to the mix.

In addition to the 400PS engine, two retractable 15kW electric motors are integrated into the powertrain, to create a hybrid system, allowing the #yacht to ride either in combustion mode or fully electric mode. While riding in 100% electric mode, the D28 Formentor navigates in zero-emissions in restricted harbours and lakes for example, meaning zero water pollution and very low acoustic emissions.

The D28 Formentor #yacht also benefits from a brand new paint option  Graphene Grey - from the #cupra palette of colours - combined with synthetic teak deck and grey upholstery.

Both #cupra and #deantonioyachts are challengers in their respective industries. With the development of the #d28formentorehybrid version, both companies reinforce their commitment to innovation and progress towards more environmentally friendly vehicles, on land and at sea.

CUPRA aims to create a universe of experiences around the car that represents the brand’s lifestyle.
