Seat has now officially presented its electric race car CUPRA e-Racer – together with some detailed tech specs. The EV is going to compete in the recently announced touring race series E-TCR.
Thanks to four electric motors generating 300 kW and a peak of up to 500 kW, the CUPRA e-Racer is able to accelerate to up to 270 km/h and to do the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds. The race car is going to participate in the world’s first dedicated electric touring championship, as reported.
The battery consists of 6,072 cells divided into 23 modules (with 264 cells each) and is said to recharge within 40 minutes. It weighs approximately 450 kilos, one third of the car’s overall weight. However, Seat does not yet reveal the battery’s capacity.
The CUPRA e-Racer is based on the chassis of the Seat Leon. The structure has been further adjusted through security elements such as a roll cage and plenty of carbon fibre.
