Cupra reveals Tavascan Extreme E Concept off-road race car

The car is equipped with a 54-kWh battery behind the cockpit and can go from 0-100 km/h (about 62 MPH) in about 4 seconds.

Cupra has revealed the Cupra Tavascan Extreme E Concept all-electric off-road race car, the next stage in the brand’s Extreme E adventure, which also hints at the design language to be used in the future series production Cupra Tavascan, the brand’s second 100% electric model that will reach Europe and overseas markets in 2024.

The Cupra Tavascan Extreme E Concept is equipped with a 54-kWh battery placed behind the cockpit to produce a real rear-weight distribution and can go from 0-100 km/h (approx. 62 MPH) in about 4 seconds, meeting race series regulations.

The lighting is set into a 3D-printed frame with 3D-printed parts that can be manufactured in six hours. Cupra chose to construct as much of the body structure as possible from flax fibers, extracted from the flax plant, adding there’s no detriment to performance. The all-electric off-road racecar is finished with copper accents.
