The World's first fully electric touring car - the Cupra e-Racer - has been put through its paces on the track for the first time by official Cupra driver, Mattias Ekstrom.

Mattias Ekstrom, with vast experience in touring and rally competitions, was perfect for testing the new e-Racer
The remarkable 660bhp electric racer is set to compete in a new ETCR race series in 2020 and has now completed its first full-speed laps around the Montmelo Circuit in Barcelona.

With a top speed of 268km/h and capable of reaching 100km/h in just 3.2 seconds, the e-Racer delivers incredible performance despite its 400kg battery pack. Aside from its batteries, the new race car resembles existing touring car race machines - albeit with even more power delivered in near silence.   

With more than 25 years of experience in different touring car, rally and karting competitions, Ekstrom is one of the most versatile race car drivers in the world. Now he has embarked on one of the biggest challenges of his career - participating in the development of the Cupra e-Racer as an official driver.

Ekstrom will continue to work closely with Cupra's team of engineers and technicians to fine-tune the fully electric race car and compete in the new ETCR race format in 2020.
