New small electric car from SEAT confirmed for 2025: price, technical data and release date

A new electric car from SEAT is on the horizon. Details on this are currently scarce (it doesn’t even have an official name yet), although it will be SEAT’s alternative to other compact electric SUVs like the Hyundai Kona Electric, the Peugeot e-2008 and the Vauxhall Mokka-e.

This sketch is the only official picture of the new car published so far

Details on the design of the new SEAT are pretty rare – all you have to do is do a lone teaser sketch (see above). It confirms that the new car will be relatively small (roughly the size of today’s SEAT Arona) and SUV-like proportions.

The picture confirms that it doesn’t seem too dissimilar to the Arona either: both cars will have bulky wheel arches, a steep rear end, and large rear pillars. However, since no engine has to be installed under the hood of the electric car, the nose is shorter and stubborn than on the petrol-powered SEAT Arona.

2025 SEAT small electric SUV batteries and range

The new SEAT EV is expected to share parts with this car, the VW ID3

It will be a while before this new car goes on sale, so SEAT hasn’t revealed much about its performance or specs. However, other new electric cars from the broader Volkswagen Group (which SEAT is a part of) will give you an idea of ​​what to expect.

Since the SEAT will be a cheaper car designed for city driving, it almost certainly doesn’t come with a large battery. The car is more likely to use a smaller battery, similar to the 45 kWh setup on the entry-level VW ID3 hatchback. For reference, the entry-level VW ID3 has a range of 218 miles but costs from almost £ 30,000.

The new EV will likely be able to keep up with the most powerful 150 hp SEAT Arona in terms of performance

As with the batteries, there is still no information about which motors power this electric SEAT. It’s a small car that you will use around town. So don’t expect too much pomp – up to 150 hp (comparable to what the most powerful SEAT Arona has available) will probably be as punchy as it gets.

That should at least mean that performance is respectable by small car standards – expect it to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in about nine seconds.

2025 SEAT small electric SUV price and release date

It will be a while before you can place an order for SEAT’s new small SUV – it won’t go on sale until 2025. Although SEAT is so far away, SEAT has confirmed the new car will cost between £ 17,000 and £ 22,000. That’s about as much as the similarly sized Seat Arona, which will make the new model one of the cheapest new electric cars on the market.
