The SEAT Leon e-HYBRID – a plug-in hybrid, and the brand’s first PHEV, with a 36-mile EV range – is now available to order, priced from £30,970.
The e-HYBRID drivetrain combines a 1.4-litre TSI petrol engine with an electric motor and six-speed DSG transmission, resulting in a total power output of 204PS and a 0-62mph time of 7.5 seconds.
Power is supplied to the electric motor via a 13kWh lithium-ion battery back which is recharged via a 3.6kW AC inlet. This enables the Leon e-HYBRID to be fully charged from 0 per cent in less than 4 hours.
The Leon e-HYBRID produces CO2 emissions from as low as 27g/km (WLTP) and a combined fuel consumption figure of 217.3-235.4mpg.
The Leon e-HYBRID has an electric-only range of 36 miles, and a benefit-in-kind rating of just 10 per cent.
The Leon PHEV drivetrain is available in FR, FR Sport, Xcellence, Xcellence Lux and First Edition trims.
