The world’s first ever 100% electric racing car.
CUPRA’s objective is to redefine the future of racing: creating a new, cleaner and more efficient way of competing, where technology and connectivity play a key role. The CUPRA e-Racer anticipates this future, opening the door for a competition between fully electric cars in 2019.

680 HP. Up to 500kW peak power, that can be maintained for 10 seconds. The engines reach 12,000 revolutions using a single reduction ratio of 1:5.6.That’s right, the CUPRA e-Racer is a real racing car.
270 km/h, from 0 to 100 in just over 3 seconds, 4 engines, 6,072 batteries that recharge in 40 minutes – and all this almost in silence, in a much cleaner and environmentally friendly way. There are other features that offer advantages. The electric engine is simpler, needs less maintenance and is more efficient. Engine power is recovered in the braking and deceleration phases, making the most of the kinetic energy.
This is a new racing car concept that opens the door to a new driving experience and to a new definition of racing. The rear-view mirrors have been swapped for mini cameras, delivering greater aerodynamics. The integrated screen on the dashboard lets the driver see what is going on around them.A central touch screen allows the driver to monitor and transfer the relevant data related to the electric system and to the car’s performance in real time.
What will the drivers’ racing experience be like with all these components? Can fans also experience racing in a different way thanks to these changes, through connectivity, for example? The future is being written today.
