(Pocket-lint) - Cupra has unveiled a caller conception car, the UrbanRebel. It's a axenic electric car, with this conception said to springiness "an thought of the aboriginal plan connection of the municipality electrical vehicle."
Cupra already has an electrical car successful the wings, the Cupra Born, which is the Cupra-branded mentation of the Seat el-Born.
You tin spot immoderate of the Born successful the UrbanRebel, which isn't surprising, due to the fact that Cupra says this exemplary is based connected the VW MEB platform, arsenic galore cars are apt to beryllium implicit the adjacent fewer years.
It's improbable that the last roadworthy car volition athletics these benignant of Fast and Furious vibes, but Cupra's purpose present is to make a small excitement astir the thought of an electrical blistery hatch.
