Volkswagen, Skoda and Cupra are each working on affordable electric city cars that will be based on the same shortened MEB platform but have highly distinct characters.

The new Cupra Urban Rebel, for example, promises to be a proper baby hot hatch. R&D boss Werner Tietz told us: “What we’ve done with the Cupra Born, with the sports suspension, the DCC, the 170kW extra boost, these are the things we also want to do with this car.”

Speaking at the reveal of the production car recently, he pledged: “You have sporty steering, more direct sports suspension, different tyres for lateral performance: this car will drive like a go-kart, I promise you.”
