  • CUPRA ambassador and e-Racer official driver Mattias Ekström takes it for its first road test on the Montmeló Circuit
  • This is how the Swedish driver is participating in the development of the first ever fully electric racecar
  • Getting used to driving with no gearbox and with a much quieter engine are the greatest challenges for a racing champion

Now he has embarked on one of the biggest challenges of his career - to participate in the development of the CUPRA e-Racer as an official driver. He is working closely with the team of engineers and technicians to fine tune the world's first fully electric race car and compete in the new ETCR race format in 2020. Everything is ready at the Montmeló Circuit in Barcelona for Mattias Ekström to test it for the first time on a paved surface, and we meet up with him in the pits to get his reactions.
