The first races are planned for 2020 under new ETCR Racing format.The 3D animation and multimedia x-ray presents four-motor beast with 500 kW of power, which can do 0-60 mph in 3.2 seconds and would be one of the fastest EV on the race track.

It is located “as low as possible so that the centre of gravity is closer to the ground and enhances the car’s dynamics”, he points out. This part is made up of 23 panels with a total of 6,072 battery cells, generating the same power as 9,000 mobile phones connected at the same time.center_img Source: Electric Vehicle News SEAT Confirms E TCR Racing Series Intention With CUPRA e-Racer Cupra e-Racer specsfour electric motors (300 kW continuous and 500 kW peak) but rear-wheel drive only0-62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.2 seconds0-125 mph (200 km/h) in 8.2 seconds168 mph (270 km/h) top speedrange at full performances: 40 km (25 miles)40 minute recharge6,072 battery cellsbattery pack weight: 450 kgtotal weight: 1575 kgHere is video from tests at the race track:.embed-container { position: relative; padding-bottom: 56.25%; height: 0; overflow: hidden; max-width: 100%; } .embed-container iframe, .embed-container object, .embed-container embed { position: absolute; top: 0; left: 0; width: 100%; height: 100%; } 14 photos – No energy is lost; it is transformed: This car features an energy recovery system that harnesses energy from braking and decelerating. The steering wheel of the CUPRA e-Racer has a display panel that the driver and engineers can monitor and transfer a full range of vehicle performance data in real time while driving for efficient energy management.– Temperature control: On the track, the technical team and the driver himself must know how to manage the temperature of the components. This car is equipped with a bespoke cooling system in the radiator, which provides cooling in around 20 minutes. “There are three independent cooling circuits, as each element has different temperature limits:  the battery threshold is 60 °C, the inverters 90 °C, and the engines 120 °C”, points out Xavier Serra.last_img read more
