The Spanish company Seat showed how it sees electric SUVs.
Seat, Spanish automaker, owned by Volkswagen, demonstrated the concept of an all-electric SUV. The novelty is presented under the Cupra brand and is based on the new VW MEB platform, designed specifically for electric vehicles.
This is not the first electric car from Seat. So, earlier the company introduced an elegant all-electric hatchback el-Born with a range of 420 km, also built on the basis of the VW MEB. Its production should begin in 2020. The manufacturer also created the Cupra e-Racer racing hatchback and the Seat Mii Electric small city car, which should go on sale this year. Now the company is demonstrating how it sees electric SUVs.
Little is known about the technical specifications. The concept is powered by a 77 kWh lithium-ion battery, which is said to be enough to cover up to 450 km on a single charge. The battery feeds 2 electric motors at once, with a total power of 306 hp. They will allow the car to accelerate to 100 km / h in 6.5 seconds.
The salon is executed in the spirit of minimalism, but at the same time it looks very impressive. It is dominated by black and white colors. Bucket seats of a rather unusual shape provide, as stated, a high level of comfort and safety. In front of the driver is a 12.3-inch screen that plays the role of a dashboard. Next to it is a 13-inch infotainment screen.
The prototype will be demonstrated at the International Motor Show in Frankfurt, which will be held from 12 to 22 September. So far, nothing has been reported about the possibility of mass production of the model, but given that VW plans to provide production facilities for assembling electric vehicles on the MEB platform (for this, the company even began building a special plant in Emden), the likelihood of this is quite high.
