A new generation Seat Leon

In September, the Frankfurt show the new generation Seat Leon.
According to the magazine Auto Bild, the car will be assembled on the platform of the current sixth-generation Volkswagen Golf.

The design of the new Leon will be in the style of the concept IBe (pictured), whose premiere was last year in Geneva. Production models are expected to have the same shape and same headlights and taillights.

It is interesting that Seat has decided to produce a new generation Leon, not only as a hatchback with five doors, as well as three-door station wagon. Seat Ibe concept with an electric motor assumes that normal power is 68 hp, but when accelerating cars it sharply increases to 102 hp

The energy of the engine comes from a variety of lithium-ion batteries, one charge is enough to travel 130 km. According to Seat, Electric accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 9.7 seconds and from 0 to 50 km / h in 3.6 seconds. Its maximum speed is 160 km / h.

It is likely that a new generation of Leon will release a full electric version, but it will happen at a later stage. The next year will likely be offered a wide range of petrol and diesel engines from Volkswagen Group.
