Discover SEAT Electric and e-Hybrid cars
Looking for a hybrid car so that you can enjoy the benefits of electric driving without worrying about how many miles you travel before having to charge the battery? The e-HYBRID range is the perfect combination of a petrol engine with a battery motor that switches effortlessly between running on electric power or petrol.
PHEVs – Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles
Hybrid cars combine the power of both a petrol engine and an electric motor. It runs purely on electric power for up to 40 miles, but then transfers to a petrol engine if you need to drive further.
MHEVs – Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicles
In a mild hybrid car, the petrol engine is supported by an electric motor. The motor allows the car’s engine to switch off when coasting, braking or stopped, and quickly turns it back on when needed. This is offered on the majority of SEAT models, just look out for eTSI in the engine description.
Charge at home or on the road
If you have off-street parking, you can charge your e-HYBRID using a standard three pin plug. When you’re out and about, you can also use one of the many on street chargers that are appearing across the country.
Buying and owning a hybrid car
Whilst the on the road price of a hybrid car may appear higher than a traditional petrol or diesel at first glance, when you take into consideration the fuel and running costs, plus local incentives such as reduced parking permits and free charging, it may help you save when you switch.
