Geneva 2010: Seat IBE – the brand design that anticipates future

Hardly a car manufacturer who thinks something up, now comes to the electro-drive around – at least equivalent to a concept vehicle. As is the Spanish Volkswagen subsidiary Seat is no exception. IBE called their small and very committed to the sporting image electric runabouts. He is 3.78 meters long, about 25 centimeters shorter than an Ibiza. The Seat IBE is a 2 +2 seater and weighs only 1,000 kilograms. The drive motor sits together with the power electronics in the extremely flat bonnet, place the lithium ion battery is in very short tail. With a maximum output of 75 kW/102 hp and 200 Newton-meter sprints the IBE in the city in 3.4 seconds from zero to 50 km/h. In 6.3 seconds speed will be 80 and after 9.4 seconds 100 kph.

But for the Seat-interested, perhaps even more important than the electric drive is the design of concept cars. Seat CEO Muir asserted that this study point to the direction, are shaped in the future seats.
