The electric Seat e-Mii city car has been revealed at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, showcasing new connected car technology which the brand will roll out in models from 2018.
Described as a concept, it shares its underpinnings with the Volkswagen e-Up, launched in 2013, and gets an 81bhp electric motor. It has an estimated 100 miles of range on a full charge – but expect closer to 75 in the real world, as with the VW.
Seat says the car will have a top speed of 80mph, 155lb ft of torque and will reach 62mph from a standstill in 11.3sec which is more than a second quicker than the e-Up.
It takes nine hours to give the e-Mii a full charge through a household plug, but a public fast charger takes 30 minutes for an 80% charge.
The manufacturer hasn’t confirmed it will make production, but it has previously stated it will have an electric car in its lineup before 2019. Seat boss Luca de Meo said the e-Mii was an "appetiser" for the car that will be revealed in 2019 but an e-Mii car sharing fleet will be trialled around Barcelona to test out the car and new connectivity developments for it.
