Seat has a long history of making affordable and reliable cars. Now the Spanish brand, part of the Volkswagen Group, is getting ready to build electric cars. Seat CEO Luca de Meo recently spoke to Automotive Manufacturing Solutions, a sister publication of automotiveIT International. Following are excerpts from the interview
Seat recently announced plans to launch six electric and plug-in hybrid models by 2021. How do you intend to do this?
The good news is that Volkswagen will enter the market with a car based on the Modular Electric Drive (MEB), and we will be the second brand in the Group to bring a car to market based on the platform. Skoda (a sister brand within the VW Group) has decided to go on to the SUV platform, which comes a few months later.
