Cover Story


The new SEAT Leon e-HYBRID, the fourth generation of the firm’s emblematic model, opens the door to the electric hybridisation of the SEAT range and becomes a key element in the company’s electrification campaign. Designed, developed and manufactured at the SEAT plant in Martorell, Barcelona, the new Leon e-HYBRID is a clear example of the brand’s determination to offer cutting-edge technology and change direction towards a more environmentally friendly future.

As part of the change to the SEAT offer towards an electrified and sustainable future, the fourth generation marks the start of hybridisation in the company. The new SEAT Leon comes with a plug-in hybrid system, comprising a 1.4 TSI, 150 CV (110 kW) petrol engine and a 115 CV (85 kW) electric motor, which delivers a total of 204 CV (150 kW) and 350 Nm of torque. This drive system combines the dynamic nature inherent to SEAT with efficiency and respect for the environment.

The additional features offered by this version particularly include its electric motor, the charger, its high voltage battery, the charge socket, the electronic power unit and the air conditioning compressor, which can be remotely activated to pre-cool the passenger compartment by using the high voltage grid.
