SEAT is driving forward with its plans to electrify its vehicles and add even greater levels of efficiency. The process has already started, and now the brand is adding a second plug-in hybrid model to the range with the introduction of its first electrified SUV, the SEAT Tarraco e-HYBRID.
The SEAT Tarraco is already an attractive proposition in the segment, and the introduction of a plug-in hybrid powertrain option will help the large SUV build on its position in the market. It brings a more balanced approach between dynamism and efficiency.
“The SEAT Tarraco e-HYBRID is an important model in our range as it is the second plug-in hybrid vehicle of the SEAT brand,“ said Wayne Griffiths, President of SEAT and CUPRA. “The introduction of plug-in hybrid technology to the Tarraco allows SEAT to deliver a more efficient model, and our ambition is that 25% of Tarraco’s sold this year will be PHEV’s.”
Designed and developed in Barcelona, at SEAT’s headquarters in Martorell, the SEAT Tarraco e-HYBRID is produced in Wolfsburg. Available as a 5-seater and with a front-wheel drivetrain, deliveries of the plug-in hybrid Tarraco are starting across Europe this month.
