The all-new SEAT Leon has been voted “AUTOBEST 2021”, the European accolade for the “Best Buy Car of Europe 2021”. The AUTOBEST jury is a panel of 31 judges made up of some of the most recognised automotive journalists from all over Europe. It’s the second time in SEAT’s 70 years of history that the company has taken the honour; in 2017 the SEAT Ateca took the same award. It highlights the dedication to developing vehicles that go beyond the ordinary and offer something truly exceptional in the market.

The new SEAT Leon e-Hybrid is a Plug in Hybrid Electric Vehicle or PHEV. Like most hybrids, it can recharge the battery automatically but you can also charge the battery by plugging it in. This means it will use the electric motor first and will only resort to the petrol engine for extra power.To recharge, you simply plug it into a conventional power network. This advanced technology means that the new SEAT Leon e-Hybrid potentially has more range than a pure battery electric car.
The SEAT Leon e-HYBRID has been named Best Small Plug-in Hybrid Car at the 2021 Driving Electric Awards. Each Driving Electric Award winner is the best electric of its kind to buy across 17 different categories according to the website’s panel of expert reviewers. Launched in late-Autumn, the Leon e-HYBRID has already established itself as a leader of its class, combining drive appeal with practicality and impressive financial figures. With a 40-mile EV range and CO2 emissions as low as 27g/km, the Leon e-HYBRID is rated at six per cent Benefit in Kind (BiK), making it an attractive option for company car drivers.
