Extreme-E: Cupra confirms its participation in Extreme-E for 2022, strengthening its commitment to electrification and sustainability


CUPRA heads to the Jurassic Coast, in the south-west of the United Kingdom, for the finale of the inaugural extreme-e season, to fight for the podium in the championship
Teammates Mattias Ekström and Jutta Kleindschmit have built a solid foundation for the ABT Cupra XE team

CUPRA is working hard with partner ABT for next year, and challenge for more podiums in 2022

The ABT Cupra XE team continues its fight for a race victory as it heads into the Jurassic X Prix: the final round of the inaugural extreme-e Championship.

Team drivers Mattias Ekström and Jutta Kleindschmit have built a solid foundation, pushing the ABT Cupra XE team forward in one of the most challenging race series imaginable at the wheel of the e-CUPRA ABT XE1, the team’s 400kW (550PS) 100% electric off-road SUV.

The team comes into the final round bolstered after standing second on the podium at the Island X Prix, which took place in Sardinia (Italy) in October. The result pushed ABT #cupra XE to fifth place in the Teams’ Championship standings, just 10 points away from the podium.

But as the curtain comes down on the sustainable, electrified motor #racing series’ inaugural season, attention begins to shift to next year.

The inaugural season has given Cupra and partner ABT a springboard from which to work even harder for 2022, so it can challenge for the title when the lights go green.
