Seat will launch six electric and hybrid models and develop a new platform for EV
Until the beginning of 2021 Seat will launch six electric and plug-in hybrid models.
The electric version of the Mii and el-Born will be the brand’s first two fully electric models, while the new generation Leon and the Tarraco will feature a plug-in hybrid version. Furthermore, the Cupra Leon and the Cupra Formentor unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show (that will be built at the Martorell factory) will also have a plug-in hybrid variant.
Seat President Luca de Meo also announced for the first time in the history of the company, Seat will develop a new vehicle platform in collaboration with the Volkswagen brand, a smaller version of the Modular Electric Drive Toolkit (MEB) on which multiple vehicles of the size of around four metres in length by different brands, Seat among them, will be made.
The goal of the new platform is to develop affordable electric vehicles, with an entry level price below 20,000 euros. More than 300 engineers will be participating in this project in Spain. These will see the light in a period of three to four years.
