Creating the first rechargeable touring racecar

The battery pack on this fully electric touring racecar is made up of 6,072 round cell batteries, which is equivalent to a battery for 9,000 mobile phones. With these figures, the range of the e-Racer makes it perfectly compatible to compete on the new E-TCR (Electric Touring Car Races).

The data compiled in these tests will be used to continue adjusting the systems, enabling the next step to be focussing on the vehicle’s performance.

SEAT Vice-president for Research and Development Dr. Matthias Rabe affirmed that “with the CUPRA e-Racer we want to bring racing to the next level. With this we can proof that we can reinvent motorsport and achieve success. Motorsport is one of the pillars of CUPRA, and we are proud of the team that is making this electric touring racecar possible”.
