We have to wait for the new Seat Leon until the middle of next year. In addition to the petrol and diesel versions, hybrid and electric versions are planned.
With the introduction of the next generation of Leon, a hybrid car will also appear. In this form, the car will be offered in two versions. Initially, the hybrid plug-in will be sold using VW Golf GTE technology. Later, a soft hybrid with a 48-volt installation is planned.
This is not the end of the news, because, in mid-2020, the first all-electric Leon will appear. The company assumes that the car’s mileage will be about 400 km, and its prices are expected to start below 25,000 euros. It has not yet been decided whether the compact seat will also be called “Leon” in this form.
Of course, petrol and diesel cars will still be offered. At the moment, no details are known about the power of these units or their associated gearboxes.
According to Alejandro Mesonero-Romanos, head of Seat stylists, in the hybrid and electric version, Leon will get a style that matches other drive options. Because of this, it will be obvious at first glance that we are dealing with this model. At the same time, there will be stylistic accents that distinguish these varieties. They should be, among others, special colors of varnish and radiator grille.
