CUPRA UrbanRebel EV will launch in 2025 with 440 km range
CUPRA has announced more details about the UrbanRebel EV, an entry-level FWD car designed for driving around cities. The four-seater vehicle, revealed last year, is built on the VW MEB Small platform.
The UrbanRebel is lightweight, thanks to the materials used on the car's interior and exterior. A 226 PS (166 kW) motor allows the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 kph (~62 mph) in 6.9 seconds. The EV has a range of up to 440 km (~273 miles); the battery capacity remains a mystery. The vehicle measures 4.03 x 1.98 x 1.6 m (~13.2 x 6.5 x 5.2 ft) long with a 2.6 m (~8.5 ft) wheelbase.
The brand is also working on two further electrified models, the CUPRA Terramar and the CUPRA Tavascan. The Terramar is an SUV plug-in hybrid that can deliver 100 km (~62 miles) of range in all-electric mode. The Tavascan builds on the 2021 CUPRA Tavascan Extreme E Concept, keeping many design elements.
The CUPRA Terramar and Tavascan models will launch in 2024, with the CUPRA UrbanRebel following in 2025. The exact price of the electric vehicle is unknown, though CUPRA has promised that the trio of new cars will start from €20,000 (~US$20,961).
