SEAT is going to launch one new car every six months until 2020.The first two vehicles will be the SEAT Tarraco and the CUPRA Ateca, which are going on sale at the end of 2018. Next year the new generation SEAT Leon will be available in dealerships with two variants, the five-door model and the ST family sized version. Most importantly, 2020 will see SEAT's first fully electric vehicle, built on the Volkswagen Group's MEB platform and featuring a range of 500 kilometres and, for the first time, the addition of a CUV (Crossover Utility Vehicle) in the SEAT model line-up.

This was announced by SEAT President Luca de Meo at the annual results presentation to the media held in Madrid. SEAT is taking a step forward in boosting electric mobility, which includes the hybrid version of the new generation Leon, also in 2020. In addition, the brand will remain committed to vehicles powered with compressed natural gas (CNG) as well as internal combustion engines.

The President of SEAT pointed out that "we can be happy with the 2017 results, but we shouldn't be satisfied. Together we've closed a period of consolidation and now it's time to look to the future with the ambition to grow."

According to Luca de Meo: "2020 will be SEAT's year of electrification with the launch of a plug-in hybrid version of the new SEAT Leon, to be built in the Martorell factory and featuring a range of at least 50o kilometres, as well as the brand's first fully electric vehicle, manufactures on the Volkswagen Group's MEB platform." SEAT's first electric vehicle, which has been previewed in video images, will be competitively priced, feature a range of up to 500 kilometres and come equipped with the most advanced connectivity and infotainment systems on the market and minimum level 2 autonomous driving capability.
