CUPRA did not say that its bold and sporty CUPRA UrbanRebel Concept Electric Car is race car first and urban transportation second. Though it did said that the car is the brand’s vision of its 100% all-electric brand vehicle first as a race car.
Since becoming its own brand, CUPRA has been proposing pretty radical EVs and the CUPRA UrbanRebel Concept Electric Car is one of the latest that is set to launch in 2025. CUPRA said it is “pushing the limits with its most radical interpretation of an urban electric car” with this concept and it is absolutely right about that.
However, it is not entirely out-of-this-world. It looks pretty down to Earth to us. Building upon VW Group’s MEB short platform, the CUPRA UrbanRebel Concept Electric Car is a racing concept that mixes electrification, sustainability, performance, and “the exciting aesthetics of the virtual world.” How a god damn beautiful and very earthy look is from the virtual world is beyond me, TBH.
The CUPRA UrbanRebel Concept Electric Car is said to deliver 250 kW of continuous power and up to 320 kW at its peak, affording it to rocket from naught to 100 (62 mph) in just 3.2 seconds. But that’s all we know about the technical aspect. Meanwhile, you can learn more about the design and stuff the concept, electric hot hatch HERE.
