SEAT’s debut plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV), the Leon e-HYBRID, is now available to order, priced from £30,970 RRP OTR.
The e-HYBRID drivetrain combines a 1.4-litre TSI petrol engine with an electric motor and six-speed DSG transmission, resulting in a total power output of 204PS and a 0-62mph time of 7.5 seconds.
Power is supplied to the electric motor via a 13kWh lithium-ion battery back which is recharged via a 3.6kW AC inlet. This enables Leon e-HYBRID to be fully charged from 0 per cent in less than 4 hours.
Leon e-HYBRID produces CO2 emissions from as low as 27g/km (WLTP) and a combined fuel consumption figure of 217.3-235.4mpg.
