Having made its global debut at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year, the extreme race vehicle was put through its paces in Zagreb, Croatia, testing the integration of the electric battery pack with the rest of the vehicle. All electrical, battery, cooling and propulsion systems had previously been tested individually, but this time the elements were integrated and their operation tested together on the track, with very optimistic results for the Cupra team.

During the testing, the high temperature conditions of the track confirmed that the Cupra e-Racer is ready to tackle the challenges of competition. The initial tests yielded very positive conclusions. This Cupra e-Racer was the first touring car produced that complies with the requirements for competing in the new E TCR series, the first ever electric, multi-brand touring car championship.

The battery pack on this fully electric touring race car is made up of 6,072 round cell batteries, which is equivalent 9,000 mobile phone batteries. With these figures, the range of the e-Racer makes it perfectly compatible for competition. The data compiled in these tests will be used to continue adjusting the systems, enabling the next step to focus on the vehicle's performance.
