SEAT to debut its plug-in hybrid Tarraco in Frankfurt


SEAT will launch the Tarraco FR PHEV, the brand's first plug-in hybrid electric SUV, at the Frankfurt motor show.

It is the fourth electric model of the six that the company announced it would launch by 2021.

The new SEAT Tarraco is now available in a hybrid engine version and FR trim, featuring a range of more than 30 miles and emissions below 50 g/km. 

Delivering 245 hp thanks to its 110 kW/150 hp petrol engine and its 85 kW/116 hp electric motor, the Tarraco PHEV is the most powerful in the range.

SEAT Vice-president for R&D Axel Andorff emphasised that “the plug-in hybrid Tarraco perfectly illustrates our strategy towards more sustainable mobility, and at the same time it retains all the dynamism and driving fun that characterise any SEAT model and especially our FR models.”

SEAT is also announcing at Frankfurt motor show that pre-sales of the new Mii electric will begin from late autumn in the UK – pricing will be announced when the EV opens for order.

The Mii electric is being sold in 14 countries (Spain, Germany, Italy, France, the UK, Austria, Belgium, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden and Poland) and will enter the market in early 2020.

Coinciding with the commercial launch of the new Mii electric, SEAT will introduce a smart wallbox home charging device. Customers can purchase the device, installation included, along with the vehicle, and it will enable them to optimise the car's recharging time and manage all the information on their mobile phone or via an online platform.
