SEAT reveals its all-electric Cupra touring car

SEAT reveals its all-electric Cupra touring car

We are currently going through that phase where everything automotive will turn electric and after the production cars, it is now the race-cars that are getting electrified. This is not a recent phenomenon though. After all, Formula E has been running for three years and now it might be the turn of the touring cars.

After Volkswagen revealed their electric racer idea for the WRC, SEAT, the VW-Group company has gone ahead and built the Cupra e-racer for the Touring car championship which will debut at Geneva. It has a peak power output of a whopping 670bhp (read Lamborghini Aventador horsepower) and you have 402bhp on tap if you are cruising through the field.

And the Cupra looks its part as well. The flared wheel arches showing off the wide-body and the huge wing in the back complement the equally large diffuser make sure it comes across as a racecar. The hood-scoops should aid the vortices of the pressure-bubble for there is no engine to cool underneath, but batteries - yes. Also, the fender scoops behind the wheels should aid better air-flow and ensure cooler brakes.

Overall, it is all the touring car that it should be because it might be faster than the current breed of petrol cars.
