Body Type = Hatchback
An incredibly popular type of a more compact passenger sedan both in the US with its Ford and GM models and just as much if not even more across the pond in Europe with its characteristically even smaller liftback sedan variant made almost by all European auto brands from Volkswagen to Fiat and Skoda. This is also probably the most popular type of a car for an all-electric EV market as it pretty much gets the best of all worlds - from a decent to high speed made more achievable for its smaller frame yet keeping 4 seats and typically enough to plenty of cargo space in the back or in place of the passenger seats for most casual city dwellers and occasional travelers.
Drive Train = RWD
Rear Wheel Drive or RWD means that the power of the car is driven from the rear of the car, or the rear motor/axle. The most common type of drive trains out there. Most suited for everyday driving, however, if you need to go off-road or live in areas with snow/gravel roads, look to the AWD, or all-wheel drive instead.

SEAT el-Born 2020 Overview

What Separates SEAT el-Born 2020

Being a very much an established brand with a very specific identity it is there was no wonder that the range is all about trying to present average specs yet a lower price than the competition as of now.

This one being more of a CUV bigger type of a hatchback is definitely a step up in SEAT’s EV range simply due to much improved metrics compared to Mii. A solid entry to mid level option thanks to its mediocre specs and metrics across the board simply due to the size class makes SEAT el-Born 2020 edition look very basic compared to some other EVs.

Still obviously to see how exactly good it is compared to other EVs on the market and other variants of cheaper tiers, it is crucial to see specific metrics. Based on that the comparison between the SEAT el-Born 2020 edition differences with other upcoming variants in the range just as well as other EVs come down to acceleration, the electric range, charging time and additional minor ones looking pretty major nevertheless. Based on a direct comparison to the othe variants in the range as well as other EVs, pretty average when compared to other EVs especially the SEAT Mii and range variants at 6.8 seconds getting from 0 to 6o miles – staying ways below the standard on the market by some good measure yet it has a cost disadvantage over it. Fortunately it stays above to what some other EV SUVs deliver it is in the neighbourhood of WLTP certified as there is still no EPA certified electric range and the former one tends to be more generous meaning its EPA range will be lower – yet it is of somewhat mid level and acceptable 217 miles. This range makes it look pretty basic and limited to work home and some out of the city traveling at the max yet more than the industry average in its size class.

Mentioning its charging capabilities this range does deliver a fairly quick result. It is capable of going from 0 to 100 in approximately 6 hours.

About The el-Born
The SEAT EV Range As soon as the Tesla Model S launched back in 2012 the huge personal use EV market has been created and it seemed that Tesla would be forever ruling it alone but eventually of course the big old established players have entered the market as well offering some competition. Some is the key word as this range also comes stil pretty much behind what the ruling brand offers yet naturally as one of the oldest established companies on the market SEAT was sure to start its own line and became one of the few brands truly trying to compete with the SEAT EV range. Thus similarly to how many big established brands also from Germany like Audi and BMW that decided to branch out its EV production and its ranges to include different car types from CUV hatchbacks to SUVs and sports cars, the SEAT EV range will be centering around the same class as their typical hatchback small size mini. As its performance is average compared to other EV ranges though based on the size this classifies it as a strong mid level option for sure even considering the price. Surely targeting both the newcomers to the EV market based on the car class and also the premium looks fans, the SEAT EV range is meant to be more of a personal use or a small family car more than anything. Still it was the range that inserted and is keeping Mini Cooper in the EV conversation. Besides that when surely being in the game of comp`eting with the market leader Tesla, it is crucial to compare the SEAT EV range to that brand both in terms of specs and looks. So comparing how technically and technologically, not even mentioning comfort wise did this range get to Tesla it might be not a very close call as it lacks behind Model Y it somewhat resembles. With its FWD with 1 to 2 motors depending on the specific variant of the range it is definitely most comparable to Tesla Model Y or Tesla Model 3 as a similar class-performance option. For sure we are not skipping the looks as well - we can say that just like Tesla yet with a more minimalistic design approach, SEAT EV has gone the more of a minimalistic route and made its range look more simplified and simple. Its range has both a somewhat minimalistic futuristic body form as a sedan and a very minimalistic yet stylish interior finsh with some premium options. Surely we all know about the fact that the looks and design are very important for any car range for sure, the specs and performance are truly everything. Based on just judging the SEAT EV range on the merit of it specs and metrics, let's take a look at specs. Depending on the specific variant in the range it starting electric range and acceleration vary, as it starts o to 60 at very much so slow to very slow even for its size class 12.1 seconds which is not one of the greatest at all yet is average and works as an entry level spec for those who do not care about the speed too much. Kind of average in terms of max speed or acceleration or other show-off features, it is somewhat surpising and gaining in range to improve the impression. This tranlsates to when the journey has already begun, it will deliver you as far as the official EPA rated range of up to 165 mi without a single recharge. This range makes it look pretty basic and limited to work home and some out of the city traveling at the max yet more than the industry average in its size class. It easily can be categotized as somewhar lower priced than a few other similar sized EVs, which might make buyers or people new to the EV world ignore a lack of some things other similar ranges in or close to its size class or other offer at a higher cost. Never forget to check out its multiple top features such as:
  • Premium options for interior
  • High-resolution dashboard
  • High cargo volume for its class
  • Smart Driver-assistance features
which all combined together make for a very satifsfying feeling when inside it on the road.
