Seat Leon Twin Drive – The new hybrid from Seat

Seat have created a new prototype version based on the Leon hatchback. The prototype will either run on electric power or on a petrol engine. The name suggests this, as the name is “Twin Drive”. The hybrid powertrain consists of a 35kW electric motor which uses lithium-ion batteries. There is also a conventional petrol engine.

The all electric mode will have a range of 50km, and it will have a top speed of 100km/h.

The Seat Leon Twin Drive Ecomotive will have a range of new modifications, including a new gearbox, brakes, heating and cooling systems. There are no production plans yet, but Seat are planning to introduce a hybrid model by 2014.
