Seat's Cupra brand will preview a production performance plug-in hybrid crossover with the Formentor concept that debuts at the Geneva auto show on March 5.
The concept is set to become the first production model specifically developed by Seat for the Cupra brand.
While Seat has sold performance Cupra-badged cars for many years, CEO Luca de Meo last year made Cupra a standalone business to develop models more powerful and more specialized than Seat's mainstream models.
The Formentor concept has a gasoline-electric plug-in hybrid system that makes 242 hp. It can travel 50 km (31) miles on electric power alone in Europe's new WLTP regulatory testing regime, equivalent to a 70km in the old NEDC cycle.
