SEAT Tarraco

SEAT Tarraco e-Hybrid, 2020, side

SPANISH car maker SEAT is expanding its range of electrified vehicles with a plug-in version of its Tarraco SUV.

With an electric-only range of up to 30.5 miles on a full charge, the Tarraco e-Hybrid has a maximum power output of 245ps and a total range of up to 454 miles.

The Tarraco e-Hybrid system mates a 1.4-litre TSI 150ps petrol engine with a 115ps electric motor and the car has a 13kWh lithium-ion battery pack and six-speed DSG transmission.

The battery can be plugged in to an AC charging point and replenished in as little as three and a half hours using a 3.6kW charger or less than five hours using a 2.3kW charger.

Although prices have still to be announced, SEAT says plug-in will be available in the UK in five-seat guise only and in FR and Xcellence trims.

The car has been designed and developed in Barcelona, at SEAT's headquarters in Martorell, and is going into production at the VW factory in Wolfsburg in Germany. Deliveries in the UK will start in the second half of 2021.

It is the third electrified car from SEAT and joins the all-electric Mii city car and the Leon e-Hybrid which was launched a few months ago.
