SEAT launches plug-in hybrid Tarraco

December 8, 2020

SEAT’s range of electrified vehicles continues to expand as the Tarraco e-HYBRID enters production this week.

The introduction of the SEAT Tarraco e-HYBRID brings the benefits of electrification, performance and efficiency to the SUV market, while adding a third pillar to the brand’s electrified range following the introduction of the Mii electric and Leon e-HYBRID in 2020.

The plug-in hybrid version of the SEAT’s flagship SUV will deliver a maximum power output of 245PS. Thanks to the13kWh lithium-ion battery back, the Tarraco e-HYBRID can travel for up to 30.5 miles (WLTP) in all-electric mode, and when using both electric and petrol engines, the car has a range of up to 454 miles.

Wayne Griffiths, President of SEAT, said: “The electrification of our large SUV takes plug-in hybrids to a new segment, shows our commitment to the technology while taking us a step closer to our aim of making electric mobility available to all.”

The SEAT Tarraco e-HYBRID’s plug-in hybrid system mates a 1.4 litre TSI 150PS (110kW) petrol engine, 115PS (85kW) electric motor, 13kWh lithium-ion battery pack and six-speed DSG transmission. This set-up offers 245PS (180kW) of power and 400Nm of torque.

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

Through the SEAT Connect app, users can access their vehicle’s data remotely, manage the charging process and control the climate control, including pre-warming the cabin on cold mornings.

The SEAT Tarraco e-HYBRID will be available in the UK in five-seat guise only in FR and Xcellence trims.

Designed and developed in Barcelona, at SEAT’s headquarters in Martorell, the vehicle enters production this week in Wolfsburg with UK deliveries starting in the second half of 2021.
