It was during its major annual press conference that the SEAT group presented its plan, called Future Fast Forward, for the coming years. A plan that aims in particular to lead the electrification of the automotive industry in Spain and around the world. The production of electric city cars in the country from 2025 represents the key element of this plan.
An electric horizon (also) at SEAT
Thus, by 2025, SEAT intends to market a brand new 100% electric city car. A model whose objective is to “make electromobility accessible to as many people as possible, and thus achieve the objectives of the Green Deal.“For the time being, SEAT has contented itself with broadcasting a subtle teaser of this upcoming city car, but also a price range, namely between 20 and 25,000 euros.
“We aim to produce more than 500,000 electric city cars per year in Martorell, including for the Volkswagen Group, but we need a clear commitment from the European Commission”Explains SEAT.
Also within the framework of its annual conference, SEAT also wanted to confirm the fact that Cupra will launch the Tavascan in 2024. It will be the second 100% electric model of the brand, after the Cupra Born which will be marketed at the end of this year. Based on the Volkswagen Group’s MEB platform, it will be designed and developed in Barcelona, and will be marketed in Europe and other markets in 2024.
As part of its electrification plan, SEAT and Cupra are also expanding their plug-in hybrid ranges, which now include 6 models: SEAT Leon, SEAT Leon Sportstourer, SEAT Tarraco, Cupra Leon, Cupra Leon Sportstourer and Cupra Formentor.
