Coming soon: 2020 Seat el-Born electric hatchback
Seat’s first standalone electric model will have a range of up to 261 miles. It’s been revealed at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show.
The electric el-Born, named after a neighbourhood in Barcelona, will go on sale in 2020, and will be closely related to the forthcoming Volkswagen ID hatchback, which is due out next year.
According to Seat, the el-Born will have a 261-mile range (on the WLTP test cycle), with 204 horsepower, and will do the 0-62mph run in 7.5 seconds
It features a 62kWh battery and will be compatible with 100kW DC supercharging, which means the battery can be charged from 0-80% in 47 minutes. It will also feature a thermal management system to help maximise the range in hot or cold weather.
Seat has also said the el-Born will feature plenty of advanced driver assistance systems, including level two autonomous capabilities, which means that the car can control steering, acceleration and deceleration.
