First picture of the series production Seat El-Born!

Sneak appearance in a video

1y ago

Seat presented the El-Born concept at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. This vehicle is none other than the Spanish cousin of the Volkswagen ID.3. Today, we find this El-Born in a series production version, unintentionally unveiled in a video of the Swedish division of the brand. The electric car has appeared on its own infotainment system.

There are several immediate differences with the concept. For example, the very sharp and futuristic headlights of the concept have been replaced by thicker and more conventional ones. The grille, on the other hand, remains fairly faithful, although there are now larger air intakes.

The general silhouette is respected. However, the mirrors and wheels are becoming more classic. The C-pillar, which is very sculpted on the concept, loses its original shape. The interior should undergo several changes such as less fanciful materials and digital instrumentation with simplified graphics.

The El-Born concept has a 62 kWh battery under the hood, allowing a WLTP range of up to 420 km/260 mi. The engine develops 201 hp, allowing to do 0 to 62 mph in 7.5 s. The series production Seat El-Born should be offered at slightly lower prices than the Volkswagen ID.3.

  • I think it looks better than the ID 3

  • Looks like a Tesla Model Y, as does the new Mustang. Both cost more and do less. Pointless exercise.

  • This is the car Elon will not build which means there is an opportunity for the ID3 in the USA...unless Tesla envy causes thick headed people to price it at $35,000 like the Model 3.

    I suspect that is why we will get the ID4 ‘crossover’...room for $35,000...because who wants to do the hard work at $20,000?

    $35,000 is not a ‘people’s car’

    There is no point of electrification if it’s just a millennial toy for a few hipsters.

    We need a $20,000 ID3...in the US-Even if it’s a SEAT or Skoda.
