After more than four years of research and testing, and 34 million euros invested, SEAT has revealed the new Leon Green Plug-in Hybrid. As the name suggests, we talk about a hybrid prototype unveiled into the world at a premiere in Spain. It was developed by Seat with the support of public and private funds.

The new Leon Green benefits from an eco drive train, consisting of a gasoline engine, a 1.4-liter TSI, capable of developing 122 horsepower, and an electric one.
The latter offers 102 horsepower and helps achieve a combined power of 170 horses.

Electrical assembly is kept alive by a lithium-ion battery of 8.8 kWh, which guarantees autonomy with zero emissions for 50 kilometers. To these are added the autonomy offered by the tank of the gasoline engine, which amounts to 816 km autonomy. According to calculations made by Seat, the two propulsion solutions provide the estimated average consumption of only 1.6 liters / 100 kilometers and emissions value of 36 g / km.

Along with the innovative propulsion solution, Seat and made ​​an application for smart phones through which the car owner can monitor the power consumption, battery level, the proportion of charge and can estimate how much CO2 you save by using the electric propulsion mode. Using this information, the system Driving Cycle Predictor, analyzes and stores the owner's routine to optimize and reduce consumption and CO2 emissions.

Last but not least, Leon Green Plug-in is equipped with an intelligent power supply system. This charges the battery when its costs are lower. If the owner cannot wait for the optimal time interval, the system triggers an emergency power procedure.
