Deja-vu? Or is this the Q with a different badge?

With the addition of the e-Hybrid to the range, Seat continues to expand its electrification program to the flagship SUV. The new version follows the SEAT Mii electric and Leon e-Hybrid, both introduced in 2020.

With 13kWh of storage, the Tarraco can reach 50km in all-electric mode, while the hybrid combo can extend range to 750km per tank. This version delivers a combined power output of 245HP through a 150HP petrol engine and a 115HP electric motor.

 

The battery can be plugged in to an AC charging point and replenished in as little as three and a half hours using a 3.6kW charger (Wallbox), or less than five hours using a 2.3kW charger.

The SEAT Tarraco e-HYBRID is fully connected with in-car and out-of-car connectivity. The electrified powertrain gives even more control once out of the vehicle; through the SEAT Connect app, users can access their vehicle’s data remotely, manage the charging process and control the climate control remotely, including pre-warming the cabin on cold mornings.

Designed and developed in Spain, it now enters production at VW plant in Wolfsburg for deliveries on the second half of 2021.

This car made us think. Launched within days of the Audi Q3 45TFSI e, with dimensions eerily similar to the Q5 and made by the same group of companies… One might suspect.

Surely not…
