New SEAT Leon e-HYBRID: the brand’s first plug-in hybrid model reaches the market

  • Introduction of plug-in hybrid technology adds extra appeal to the new SEAT Leon, in both 5 door and Sportstourer body types
  • The SEAT Leon mixes dynamics and efficiency – a core pillar of the compact vehicle’s development
  • The SEAT Leon e-HYBRID system mates a 1.4 litre TSI engine, an electric motor and a lithium-ion battery to offer 204PS (150kW) of power and 350Nm of torque combined
  • With a 13kWh lithium-ion battery pack, the SEAT Leon can travel for up to 64km (72km in NEDC) in all-electric mode
  • Plug-in hybrid technology adds CO2 emissions reductions to the SEAT Leon; based on the official WLTP test cycle, it emits between 25 and 30g/km of CO2 (WLTP)

The SEAT Leon has always been a core pillar in the brand’s vehicle line-up. Now, this model is helping the brand move in a new direction as the world shifts to an electrified and sustainable future.

The SEAT Leon continues the successful path carved out by its predecessors but, as well as taking it to the next level in terms of connectivity, dynamism and safety, it is also leaping forward in terms of efficiency. The latest generation vehicle integrates a plug-in hybrid system, making the SEAT Leon e-HYBRID the brand’s first plug-in hybrid model and a key part of its electric offensive, in both five door and Sportstourer bodies.

“With its impressive design, inspired by the light of Barcelona, the all-new SEAT Leon comes with innovative technologies: it is the brand's first fully connected and safest vehicle, making it the best Leon ever”, said SEAT President Wayne Griffiths. “Now SEAT’s best-selling model is coming to the market with an electrified version, our very first plug-in hybrid. Available in both 5-door and Sportstourer version, it forms an important part of SEAT’s move to integrate electrification into the portfolio, which is destined to expand even further as we will launch five new electrified models until the end of 2021.”

Designed, developed and produced in Barcelona, at the company’s headquarters in Martorell, the SEAT Leon epitomises the brand’s determination to deliver the latest technologies and shift to a future in line with changing environmental values.
