While being hybrid and eco-friendly it still posseses some sporty feeling.

While most car manufacturers already offer at least one electrified car on the market, there are still few, which do not even have a hybrid or PHEV in the model range, let alone electric car. Another such example is the Spanish Seat, where it wwas not a problem with the fact that it would not have had access to this type of technology, as a part of the Volkswagen group, they just needed to wait in line. However, the wait is now over, because very soon, the first Seat will also be given an exclusive-hybrid drive train.

It's kind of understandable that the first model to combine an electric motor with a gasoline egine in one vehicle will be the largest of three SUVs, Tarraco. It has already had a good response from customers and, as a result, it was easier to adapt it to a new set because of its volume. At the same time, Seat adds that it is the first of the six electrified brand models that will drive into the road by the beginning of 2021.

The combination chosen at the Seaat consists of a 1,4-litre turbocharged petrol four-cylinder with a power of 110 kilowatts, paired with an electric motor of 85 kilowatts respectively. The total system power output thus amounts to 180 kilowatts, however, what may be even more important is the battery pack capacity. It can 'hold' up to 13 kilowatt-hours of electricity, which would on the one hand be sufficent for 50 kilometers of  electric autonomy, on the other hand for 50 grammes of CO2 emissions per kilometer, which will be in the coming years enough to meet stricter environmental protection measures in the European Union.

Otherwise, the entire package will be packed and spiced with a touch of sporty feel. Seat decided to give FR equipment pack to all the plug-in hybrid Tarracos. This will provide some body accessories, including wider track blocks and rims up to 20 inches in diameter. At the same time, they will add a new, so-called fura grey colour to the offer, which, along with the cars themselves, will come into production during 2020.
