Seat El-Born concept

Making its debut next week at the Volkswagen Group night before it headlines at the carmaker’s stand at Geneva, the El-Born – named after a trendy neighbourhood in Barcelona – is based on the Volkswagen Group MEB platform also used for the Volkswagen ID model due next year.

Seat’s family hatchback is due to arrive shortly after the ID and will feature a 62kWh energy dense battery pack that will provide a power output of up to 204hp – giving a 0-62mph time of around 7.5 seconds and a real-world range of around 260 miles (420km).

Onboard equipment brings a digital cockpit and a 10-inch infotainment and connectivity screen while driver assistance features available include Intelligent Park Assist.
