Seat To Launch First Electric Model In 2019

Seat has revealed that it will launch its first all-electric model in three years’ time.

During the launch of the facelifted Leon, the product strategy and market research executive for the firm, Enrique Pastor, told Autocar that the brand’s first EV will arrive before its eargerly-awaited large SUV, in 2019.

At this stage it isn’t known if the car will be a brand new model or if it will instead be based around an existing Seat, potentially the facelifted Ateca or next-generation Leon.

While the Spanish automaker has firm plans for an electric model, it is remaining tight-lipped as to when its first hybrid vehicle will hit the market.

The company says that such a model won’t arrive “within two years” as the powertrains are currently too expensive for the brand’s existing customers.
