Besides using it to back capture, what's the best usage of the kubel?
scouting and infantry fighting support.
The kubel's main purpose is to back capture like you said. Slip past enemy infantry early and capture points that will cause your opponent to divert frontline infantry to stop you. If you are in a firefight, the kubel is not useless. Pretend that it is your LMG 42 as the Wehrmacht, position it near your Volks and provide fire support. Use it to flank and harass, like everything try not to engage across hardcover and watch out for those VET1 Riflemen from the USF!
I find them potent as a supporting unit early game as well. Tips most of the infantry engagements in favor of volks most of the time. Also good at rushing at snipers.
At the current state of game im only making one to capture points at start and sometimes as a backup for volks. After few minutes its useless.
In real life the Kublewagen was used as a fast scout car
