Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles are becoming increasingly popular: Compared to the previous year, sales figures in Europe alone rose 210 per cent; a total of 619,129 plug-in hybrid models were sold in 2020 and the upwards trend continues. SEAT now offers three models with this technology:

  • SEAT Tarraco e-HYBRID: power consumption in kWh/100 km: Combined 14.5; fuel consumption/petrol in l/100 km: Combined 1.8; CO2 emissions in g/km: Combined 41; efficiency class: A+
  • SEAT Leon e-HYBRID: power consumption in kWh/100 km: Combined 15.4–14.9; fuel consumption/petrol in l/100 km: Combined 1.3–1.2; CO2 emissions in g/km: Combined 29–27; efficiency class: A+
  • SEAT Leon Sportstourer e-HYBRID: power consumption in kWh/100 km: Combined: 15.5–15.0; electricity consumption/petrol in l/100 km: Combined 1.3–1.2; CO2 emissions in g/km: Combined 29–27; efficiency class: A+
     

The combination of electric and combustion technology offers enormous advantages with respect to dynamics and efficiency. Our brand is on the best – and fastest – way to achieving a more environmentally conscious future.

power consumption in kWh/100 km: Combined 14.5; fuel consumption/petrol in l/100 km: Combined 1.8; CO₂ emissions in g/km: Combined 41; efficiency class: A+.

Purely electric or mixed
The drive for all three models can be adjusted differently according to the needs of the user. If the battery is charged, then the vehicles start in a purely electric mode. The hybrid drive is activated, when the battery’s charge level drops below a certain level or the speed of the vehicle surpasses 140 km/h. The driver can control the battery’s charging process using the different modes of the hybrid drive: By engaging the braking energy recuperation, the battery is for example also charged on the go; the driving efficiency increases in the e-mode. According to the WLTP, the SEAT Tarraco e-HYBRID with a purely electric drive has a range of up to 49 kilometres, the SEAT Leon e-HYBRID even of up to 64 kilometres.1)
 

Thanks to the highly modern electric motor and advanced battery technology, both the five-door and the Sportstourer SEAT Leon e-HYBRID are able to drive longer in the purely electric mode. This means they are optimally suited for local CO₂ free driving; at the same time, the driver can use the power of the combustion engine as needed,

Sporty, comfortable, high performance
Both variants of the SEAT Leon e-HYBRID – the five door and Sportstourer – are equipped with a 1.4-litre TSI petrol engine. In combination with the powerful electric motor and the lithium-ion battery with a net energy battery content of 12.8 kWh, this compact vehicle impresses with a short-term total performance of up to 150 kW (204 PS) and an incredible 350 Nm of torque. “Thanks to the highly modern electric motor and advanced battery technology, both the five-door and the Sportstourer SEAT Leon e-HYBRID are able to drive longer in the purely electric mode. This means they are optimally suited for local CO2 free driving; at the same time, the driver can use the power of the combustion engine as needed,” underscores Dr Tietz.

In its new plug-in hybrid variant, the SEAT Tarraco e-HYBRID combines a 110 kW (150 PS) 1.4-litre TSI petrol engine with an 85 kW (115 PS) local CO2 free electric motor. Its combined short-term total performance amounts to up to 180 kW (245 PS).

More information about the plug-in hybrid models

 

1)Range determined on the chassis dynamometer according to the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) in the most range efficient equipment variant for the models mentioned. The actual WLTP range figures can vary depending on the vehicle's equipment. In practice, the actual range also varies depending on driving style, speed, use of comfort/ancillary features, ambient temperature, number of passengers/loading and topography.
