Seat showcases electric plans through El-Born concept

Seat has given an insight into its inaugural electric car with a preview of its El-Born concept.

The Seat El-born concept

Making its debut next week at the Volkswagen Group night before it headlines at the carmaker’s stand at Geneva, the El-Born – named after a trendy neighbourhood in Barcelona – is based on the Volkswagen Group MEB platform also used for the Volkswagen ID due next year.

Seat’s family hatchback is due to arrive shortly after the ID and will feature a 62kWh energy dense battery pack that will provide a power output of up to 204hp – giving a 0-62mph time of around 7.5 seconds and a real-world range of around 260 miles (420km).

Onboard equipment brings a digital cockpit and a 10-inch infotainment and connectivity screen while driver assistance features available include Intelligent Park Assist.
