Cupra UrbanRebel Concept confirmed for a 2025 launch

Nearly half a year after Seat previewed its very first little EV with a sketch of its shape in March 2021, Cupra has actually revealed its very first little EV– the Cupra UrbanRebel Concept. As the name suggests, it’s an idea design, however a production design stemmed from it has actually gotten the green signal.

Design

Cupra is an efficiency brand name, and it’s previewing the city electrical automobile in its most extreme analysis. The Cupra UrbanRebel Concept uses an enormous rear wing in a motorsport-ready appearance, with a U-shaped LED lighting to opt for the techie EV style. The upper area of the rear wing brings a gold surface, and there’s “01” branding on its sides. At the front, we can see a concave shape in the nose area. Unlike at the back, the Cupra logo design at the front isn’t a lit up one. It looks like there’s dot-patterned lighting on the entire vehicle.

While Seat revealed the very first little electrical SUV of Volkswagen Group’s MEB entry household, Cupra has actually most likely revealed the very first little electrical hatchback. And it’s not simply any hatchback, it’s a mind-blowing hot hatch. While the production variation will be a regular electrical cars and truck with moderate sportiness, the principle reveals the heights Cupra can reach if there’s adequate client need for an efficiency car in this section.

Specifications

Sitting on the MEB entry platform, the Cupra UrbanRebel Concept’s production variation might use a variety of around 350 km (217 miles) with its biggest battery pack alternative. In a discussion with Auto Express in July 2021, Thomas Schafer, CEO, Skoda, spoke about a Skoda MEB entry little electrical cars and truck. “I would state in between 350 and 400 km (217 and 248 miles) is most likely a sensible variety, due to the fact that you do not truly require anything more than that,” Schafer stated. If that’s the variety Skoda is preparing for its MEB entry designs, it is safe to presume that other Volkswagen Group brand names have actually set a comparable target for the lorry in this section.
