The Spanish automaker SEAT announced his plan called Future Fast Forward which focuses on the electrification of its models. In this context, he announced that in 2025 will launch a low-cost urban electric car on the market.
The production plant where this vehicle will be produced will be announced in the coming months, although the company prepares the factory for Martorell with the ambition to produce more than 500.000 cars per year.
SEAT aspires not only to produce electric vehicles, but also to lead the development of the entire project for the Grupo Volkswagen. "Our plan is to transform our Technical Center, unique in southern Europe and an essential R&D asset for the region", said Wayne griffiths, President of the company.
“We believe that it is part of our responsibility to electrify Spain. 70 years ago, we put this country on wheels. Our goal now is to put Spain on electric wheels ”, He added.
Regarding its new urban electric car, the brand indicated that, "It represents an important milestone on the road to sustainability and the fight against climate change and aims to become the engine of the transformation of the Spanish automotive industry".
Furthermore, Griffiths announced that CUPRA, a SEAT brand that produces high-performance vehicles, will launch the Tavascan, its second 100% electric model after the Born which will hit the market later this year.
“Our dream will come true: the CUPRA Tavascan will be a reality. Based on the MEB platform of the Volkswagen Group, it will be designed and developed in Barcelona and will reach Europe and other international markets in 2024 ”, said the executive.
