Seat Tarraco e-Hybrid plug-in SUV production begins

Seat is expanding its range of electrified cars with the addition of the Tarraco e-Hybrid plug-in SUV to its model line-up.

The new plug-in hybrid (PHEV) will arrive in UK dealerships in the second half of 2021, joining the Mii Electric and Leon e-Hybrid as part of the brand's growing stable of electrified models.

Sitting at the top of the Tarraco range, the new e-Hybrid is powered by a 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine and electric motor. It develops 245PS and 400Nm.

A 13kWh battery provides a zero-emission range of 30 miles and can be recharged in 3.5 hours. When using both electric and petrol engines, Seat says the Tarraco e-Hybrid can reach up to 454 miles.

“Seat continues its electrified offensive as it transforms its offering to a more sustainable future, with the introduction of its third electrified model: the Seat Tarraco e-Hybrid,” said Wayne Griffiths, president of Seat. “The electrification of our large SUV takes plug-in hybrids to a new segment, shows our commitment to the technology while taking us a step closer to our aim of making electric mobility available to all.”

The Tarraco e-Hybrid is equipped with in-car and out-of-car connectivity. Through the Seat Connect app, users can access their vehicle’s data remotely, manage the charging process and control the climate control, including pre-warming the cabin on cold mornings.

It will be available in the UK in five-seat guise only in FR and Xcellence trims. First deliveries will commence in the second half of 2021.
