New Seat electric car to be unveiled in Geneva

Seat will present in Geneva an all-new bespoke electric car. It will be based on the Volkswagen MEB platform, so the maximum range should be 500 km (311 miles).

According to Seat CEO, Luca de Meo, Seat will be the second brand to use MEB platform in a production model (ahead of Skoda, which also is developing its own model).

“We are the second brand after Volkswagen to use the MEB platform. It shows you our brand positioning and how group management sees the role of Seat.”

Besides the new BEV, Seat is working on a new Leon with plug-in hybrid powertrain, shared with the next-generation Volkswagen Golf GTE.

In other words, the Spanish brand is finally going electric – almost a decade after unveiling of the IBE concept in 2010:

Come on Seat! Give us a Model 3 rival!

Is a segment C car, and Model 3 is a segment D car, the difference in price and size will be big, I don’t think they will be contenders. But we love compact cars in Europe, and the Seat Leon offers the best of VAG group at a more affordable price and with the plus that a touch of dynamism on road. I hope they could make a nice and affordable EV car.
