Electric cars, with very few exceptions, are still expensive cars and rarely go below 40,000 euros, especially if you are looking for a family car.
Even so, for those who want a ZERO label car, there are plug-in hybrids with more affordable proposals. And by less than 40,000 euroshe SEAT Leon Sportstourer eHybrid It is postulated as the best proposal on the market.
The Spanish brand has been characterized in recent decades by a well-deserved reputation for offering rational cars that combine driving comfort and dynamism, and with good finishes at a reasonable price. The SEAT Leon Sportstourer in its version PHEV named eHybrid is a good example of this.
Only available with the FR finishel Leon Sportourer PHEV part of the 36,400 euros, and is currently on sale with brand discounts starting at 28,047 euros. Its price list makes it one of the most affordable PHEVs on the market and the cheapest family PHEV in the Volkswagen Group.
The SEAT Leon eHybrid is the brand’s first car to incorporate a plug-in hybrid drive. It combines a 150 hp 1.4 petrol engine and a 6-speed DSG automatic transmission with an 85 kW (116 hp) electric motor, for a total power of 204 CV y 350 Nm.
The electric motor is associated with a 13 kWh battery (10.4 useful kWh). The battery can be charged at a power of 2.3 kW in 5 hours and in 3h30 min at a power of 3.7 kW. Gives you a Approved electric range of 60 km, according to the WLTP standard. In real conditions of use, it is necessary to count between 45 km and 55 km of electric autonomy.
For those who don’t take many long road trips, the Leon eHybrid offers a much smoother and more refined ride than the diesel versions and offers remarkable fuel economy (as long as you plug in often, of course).
As an all-around family PHEV car, the Leon Sportstourer eHybrid has an enviable price-habitability-consumption ratio. One of its strong points is its habitability, far superior to that of its rivals despite measuring only 4.64 m long. The trunk offers 470 liters of capacity.
The Leon Sportstourer eHybri is not the only family PHEV on the market for less than 40,000 euros. The Kia Ceed Tourer 1.6 GDi PHEV eDrive, from 35,132 eurosIt is one of them.
However, it offers less habitability than the SEAT despite its 4.60 m length (although it has a 437-litre trunk). Its hybrid system of only 141 CV offers an approved autonomy in electric mode of 50 km (WLTP).
The Skoda Octavia Combi iV, which starts at 41,500 euros and offers a slightly higher habitability compared to the SEAT Leon, could be a very worthy alternative. However, this model has been withdrawn from the Skoda catalog and there are only a few left. few units in stock at some dealerships.
