SEAT will launch six electric and plug-in hybrid models and develop a new platform in Spain for electric vehicles
SEAT presented its electric strategy today which, until the beginning of 2021, will include 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 will also have a plug-in hybrid variant.
SEAT President Luca de Meo also announced today at the company’s annual media conference that the CUPRA Formentor, the new CUV that was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, will be built at the Martorell factory.
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 highly skilled engineers will be participating in this project in Spain.
