The CUPRA e-Racer, champion of the PURE ETCR (predecessor of the FIA ​​ETCR) last year and the first electric racing car in the world, demands the maximum from the drivers. It weighs around 1,575 kilograms and its four electric motors allow it to develop a total power of 500 kW (680 hp), making it one of the most powerful racing cars in the world. With a maximum torque of 960 Nm, it accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds and reaches a top speed of 270 km/h. Due to these characteristics, its handling is totally different from that of any other competition vehicle, to the point of being "brutal and incomparable", according to the CUPRA driver Jordi Gené. Jordi, who has been part of the development of the e-Racer since its inception, showed during the ETCR weekend at Jarama that experience on this circuit is key to obtaining the best results. The Spaniard got the pole position of the “Pool FAST”, the group in which he competed, achieving a best time of 1: 37.123.
