Electric SEAT

(Because electric chair sounds awful)

Due for public debut at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show. SEAT el-Born is a concept car that answers the varied questions posed by the electric revolution, and becomes a game changer in the process.

The world is changing and with it, mobility too. Just as the combustion engine changed the way we travelled in the early 20thcentury, electrification is moving us towards the next-generation of automotive development.

As this change happens, pushed by commitments to reduce CO2 emissions and our impact on the environment, SEAT is assuming greater responsibility and helping accelerate the change towards a low carbon future.

Cities are becoming more densely populated but customers want to continue to use personal mobility, so the SEAT el-Born concept fuses the core aspects driving change in the automotive industry: electrification, autonomous driving, shared-mobility and connectivity.

SEAT el-Born is the first 100% electric vehicle based on the Volkswagen Group MEB platform. A concept car named after one of the most iconic neighborhood of Barcelona. An inspiration for designers and engineers of SEAT who have created a sporty vehicle with the most advanced electric technology.

With a power and energy dense battery pack at its very centre giving the SEAT el-Born a range of up to 420km on the WLTP official test cycle and the ability to reach 100km/h in only 7.5 seconds, the vehicle is as dynamic and practical as you are expecting it of a SEAT. Add to this the ability to recharge the battery in as little as 47 minutes and it starts to change the perceptions of electrification.

The SEAT el-Born isn’t just about the promise of usable electrification, but the integration of other technologies too. The vehicle incorporates autonomous functionality to support the driver as well as a host of assistance systems.

As we welcome them to the EV world, all we can say is ‘we’ve kept the SEAT warm.’
