SEAT looks back on a history spanning over 60 years. A member of the Volkswagen Group since 1986, the Spanish carmaker today designs, develops and manufactures cars and components at its production sites in Martorell, Barcelona and El Prat. The SEAT brand’s deliveries to customers rose by 10.9% in fiscal year 2019 to 574 thousand vehicles. SEAT delivers solutions “Created in Barcelona” to make mobility easy.

At SEAT, the year 2019 was all about the electrification of the model range: the Spanish brand brought its first all-electric production model, the Mii electric, onto the market in the reporting period. Powered by a 61 kW (83 PS) electric motor, the model is ideally suited to city traffic with its dynamic performance and fresh design. The battery has a range of up to 260 km. SEAT gave a foretaste of another all-electric vehicle with its el-Born concept car. Based on the Modular Electric Drive Toolkit, this model impresses with a generous interior, offering both practicality and functionality, as well as a range of up to 420 km.

 The Tarraco FR, also presented in 2019, is the most powerful vehicle in the model range with a modern powertrain comprising a 1.4 TSI petrol engine producing 110 kW (150 PS) and an 85 kW (115 PS) electric motor. The system’s total output is 180 kW (245 PS). The body exudes confidence and is truly dynamic thanks to wider wheel housings, a sporty rear spoiler, a front FR radiator grille and 19-inch alloy wheels. The company’s CUPRA brand presented the Formentor, the first model specially developed for the brand, which is due to launch on the market in 2020. CUPRA also presented the Tavascan, its vision of an allelectric SUV coupé. This concept car combines state-of-the-art drive technology with the elegant, sporty and expressive design of a four-door crossover SUV.
