SEAT el-Born will make its first appearance in front of the world’s media at the Volkswagen Group night, before its public debut at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show.
Per SEAT, el-Born is a concept car that answers the varied questions posed by the electric revolution, and becomes a game changer in the process. It is the first 100% electric SEAT vehicle based on the Volkswagen Group MEB platform. With a power and energy dense battery pack at its very centre giving the SEAT el-Born a range of up to 420km on the WLTP official test cycle and the ability to reach 100km/h in only 7.5 seconds, the vehicle is as dynamic and practical as you are expecting it of a SEAT. Add to this the ability to recharge in 47 minutes.
According to the company, the vehicle also integrates an advanced thermal management system to maximise vehicle range in the most extreme of environmental conditions. The vehicle’s heat pump can reduce the electrical heating consumption, saving up to 60km in autonomy – useful in countries where temperatures can drop and occupants need to use climate control systems. The car is expected to hit markets by 2020.
