New SEAT plug-in hybrid Tarraco FR PHEV
The plug-in hybrid Tarraco is a testament to the SEAT strategy towards Electrification, which will include six electric and plug-in hybrid models until the beginning of 2021. Designed and developed on the premises in Martorell, Tarraco is produced in Wolfsburg (Germany), in the heart of the Volkswagen group.
With the introduction of the plug-in hybrid engine, the Tarraco will gain additional performance, making it a very viable alternative. The engine system, which includes 1.4 lt TSI 110 kW petrol engine, 85 kW electric motor and 13 kWh Lithium battery, provides the driver with the ability to drive adaptability.
It provides autonomy in electric operation for over 50 kilometers, with zero emissions or a combination of petrol engine and electric motor for increased performance. The overall performance is 245PS giving the plug-in hybrid Tarraco top speed 217km/h and capable of 100km/h in just 7.4 seconds.
CO2 emissions will be below 50g/km in the official WLTP test cycle. The exterior design has been reinforced with larger wheel domes, sporty rear spoiler, FR special 19 “alloy wheels and optional 20” alloy wheels. The interior is designed in a smart way to enhance the comfort of the latest generation infotainment system, including a new 9.2-inch screen navigation system.
