Luca de Meo has stepped down from his position as president of Seat with immediate effect, strengthening rumours that he will be taking over as Renault’s chief executive.
Seat has revealed its largest SUV, the Tarraco, which will be sold in five- and seven-seat versions in 2019 and is expected to continue the brand's conquest sales.
Tonight Seat will unveil its latest model live on Facebook.
Carmakers must consider digital needs as much as showroom demands, says Seat president Luca de Meo. They need to consider whether the investment they expect franchised dealers to put into expanding showrooms could be better spent on digital tools.
Seat's leadership team has been tasked with defining the ‘purpose’ of the Barcelona-based Volkswagen Group brand, now the carmaker is back in profit.
Seat has reported its first profits since 2008.
Seat has said the company is on track to launch four new models in the next two years and has laid out its growth plans for the next 10.
