Seat is concentrating on expanding its current range, but also on developing electric cars. With a Volkswagen eUp already on the market, Seat’s mission seems easy.
SEAT has released a fleet of electric eMii prototypes into circulation to kick off the car sharing service aimed at the more than 1,000 employees of the SEAT Metropolis:Lab Barcelona and the Pier 01 Barcelona Tech City, the benchmark hub for Europe’s entrepreneurial ecosystem. As well as sharing the eMiis, they also share expertise and workspace.
With this pioneering project in Barcelona, SEAT takes another step forward towards the goal of analysing and finding solutions to the challenges facing future mobility. In addition, the data provided by the fleet of eMiis will be added to the research and development of technologies spearheaded by SEAT’s digital lab.
