About Seat el-Born
GENERALThe SEAT el-Born is an all-electric car concept car from the Spanish car manufacturer SEAT. It was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in 2019 as a concept car, with sales planned from 2020. The el-Born is based on the Volkswagen Group MEB platform and will be manufactured at the Zwickau plant in Germany alongside the Volkswagen ID which shares the same platform.
EXTERIORSeat el-Born embodies the future of vehicle design in a modern and integrated way, emphasized most acutely at the front of the vehicle. Aerodynamics are key to maximizing the vehicle’s range. Cooling vents are placed lower down the vehicle’s front, providing air to the battery pack and so streamlining air flow over the front of the vehicle. As the eye moves over the SEAT el-Born, the position of the A-pillar has noticeably moved further forward, creating a sleeker look, and internally, more room in the cabin. This is facilitated by the electric powertrain requiring less room.
INTERIORInside, space is maximized thanks to the all-electric powertrain, giving the opportunity to offer a completely new experience. The sculpted cabin gives a feeling of lightness, but also technological advancement, with the integration of the digital cockpit, a 10” infotainment and connectivity screen perched in the centre of the dashboard. There is also greater storage space too; the ability to stow a bag between the two front seats is a simple and effective example of this maximised capacity.
PERFORMANCEWith a power output of up to 150kW (204PS) the vehicle can reach 100km/h in as little as 7.5 seconds – enough to meet the demands of any driving scenario. The car offers a real world range of up to 420km based on the WLTP drive cycle from its 62kWh energy dense battery pack respectively, the vehicle is ready to travel wherever the customer needs to. And with compatibility with up to 100kW DC supercharging, the battery can be returned from 0 to 80% in as little as 47 minutes. The vehicle also integrates an advanced thermal management system to maximize vehicle range in the most extreme of environmental conditions. The vehicle’s heat pump can reduce the electrical heating consumption, saving up to 60km in autonomy – useful in countries where temperatures can drop and occupants need to use climate control systems.
TECHNOLOGYThe SEAT el-Born benefits from autonomous level two systems, giving partial automation to the vehicle so it can control steering, acceleration and deceleration events. Add to this amongst other Intelligent Park Assist and the SEAT el-Born is a concept car that encapsulates the future of driving.
